Hebrews 12:1-2 - ...and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (NKJ)
As we run the race here on earth, our paths can become bumpy as we encounter many trials and sorrows along the way. Even during the difficult times, it is important for us to continue running that race with endurance, remembering why we are running and keeping our eyes focused on the goal.
So, WHY are we running? To serve the Lord with gladness and glorify Him in all we do... BECAUSE of what He did for us.
My dad sent this video of The Booth Brothers as an encouragement to me and my husband. It is a great song about sitting at Jesus’ feet and thanking Him for what He has done for us. I am looking forward to that day. It is my hope that, when I finish the race, I will see Jesus sitting in front of me with open arms, saying "Come, sit at My feet and rest for awhile. You have finished the race well."
I hope you are encouraged by this song....
