"Keep the Son in your eyes!" -Victor Flores
"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, 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. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." (Hebrews 12:1-3, Emphasis mine)
Are you tempted to give up? Do you feel like you're losing heart? Don't!
1. Follow Jesus by throwing off everything in your life that's not awesomely helpful to you and others.
2. Run the marathon God's laid out for you, and
3. Focus on Jesus who's running ahead of you. He will lead you to persevere through any and everything this life throws at you.
Do you know somebody who's struggling and wants to give up? Share this with them.
I heard about two different people last week alone who tried to commit suicide. Nobody saw it coming. Share this with those you think may need to hear this today.
Pray for those you call "friends" on FB today.
