Greetings brothers and sisters

A friend posted this on Facebook....it is a reading from Our Daily Bread

In dark difficult days.....we can still be victorious if we focus on Christ




Today’s Reading: Hebrews 12:1-11

“Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” —Hebrews 12:1-2

In 1952 Florence Chadwick attempted to swim 26 miles from the coast of California to Catalina Island. After 15 hours, a heavy fog began to block her view, she became disoriented, and she gave up. To her chagrin, Chadwick learned that she had quit just 1 mile short of her destination.

Two months later Chadwick tried a second time to swim to Catalina Island from the coast. Again a thick fog settled in, but this time she reached her destination, becoming the first woman to swim the Catalina Channel. Chadwick said she kept an image of the shoreline in her mind even when she couldn’t see it.

When the problems of life cloud our vision, we have an opportunity to learn to see our goal with the eyes of faith. The New Testament letter to the Hebrews urges us to “run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith” (12:1-2). When we feel like quitting, this is our signal to remember not only what Jesus suffered for us but what He now helps us to endure—until the day we see Him face to face. —Dennis Fisher

Dear Father, sometimes the challenges of life seem insurmountable. Help me to fix my eyes on You and trust You. I’m thankful You are bringing about Your good purposes in me.

We can finish strong when we focus on Christ.

This is a great encouragement. Simple but truthful and to the point. Thank you for sharing sister. If we keep our eyes on godly goals, on the prize (1 Corinthians 9:24), we'll reach our destination. It comes down to faith and perseverance.

Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow

Why should my heart feel lonely/And long for Heav’n and home,
When Jesus is my portion?/A constant Friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow,/And I know He watches over me;
His eye is on the sparrow,/And I know He watches me.
