So yeah on my way back from my lunch break I couldn’t help but think about how easy it is to compare yourself to someone else’s journey whether knowingly or unknowingly. It happens but today it was the day that the Holy Spirit told me to stop it! I felt a tugging and I was gently reminded about Hebrews 12:1-2
“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.”
For the rest of my shift I was meditating small small on those two verses and on my way home I felt another prompt to share this teaching in a video.
I hope this encourages somebody like me who every now and again needs a gentle reminder about not giving up and keeping your eyes fixed on God. He is the Way, the Truth and Life!
God bless you xx
