Reading Mama's Bible this morning and letting her heart speak to me from heaven.
I love her note in the margin of Hebrews 12!
"CHRISTIAN FAITH... CONSTANT MOTION FORWARD!"
Every marathon race has a beginning and an end.
If you quit before you reach the finish line, that is the END OF YOUR RACE!
I see the finish line ahead of me.
Jesus is waiting!
All around me the cloud of witnesses watch me run and cheer me on!
I choose JOY!
I choose forgiveness!
I choose to keep going until I cross the finish line and fall into the arms of my savior!
And as The Lord gives me strength I choose to carry those who are wounded or weary or without hope upon my back as I run!
Yes! Thinking of my Mom with joy this morning and certain what she would say to me.
1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
2 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.
My spiritual motto: Siempre Adalante - Forever Forward!
