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. Let us FIX OUR EYES ON JESUS, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
That, may be my favorite verse of all time. It is always good to remember all God has brought you through. Oh I so easily forget! You know, I still drive around Minnesota and think, wait..... I'm in Minnesota?? I had forgotten all the miracles that God did to get us here. So I read them again, here. I'm so glad I did, because I have been really wondering why we live in this frozen tundra. I've been saying... this weather is not fit for humans! We must be insane to live here! I really, really do not like winter.
But, I'm so very thankful. I have many things to praise God for. This Minnesota life is not perfect but we are blessed to have it. I want to keep my eyes FIXED ON JESUS. I pray God will help me throw off all that hinders and not be entangled in sin. Thank you Lord for all you have done for me!!
