Several weeks ago, I started coming here every Sunday to focus on God’s Word and remind myself who is in control. This idea emerged after one exceptionally long Saturday night in which a battle ensued in the darkness of night. Sleep was tossed aside as the enemy beat me down and tried to make me believe that I was worthless. God was by my side this night and every time words were hurled against me, God came back with “You are loved”. Every time the darkness became smothering, God lifted me into His arms and reassured me that I was safe. By morning, worn out and wrung out, I knew without a doubt that even though darkness attacks, morning comes and with it the light of a new day. Sunday morning does always come and taking time to count that blessing honors God and His amazing love for us.
So today, I share words – God’s words to remind myself that He is my focus-my center!
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12:1-3
So I’m looking to surrender all to Jesus all the while running the race that will help me become wholly His!
