Hebrews 12:1 – “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.”
Today is my one year anniversary of writing this blog. It is hard to believe that it has been one year! I have not always been faithful to write every day. Sometimes my entries may have seemed a little rambling or confusing – some days our heads are clearer than others, right?
But God promised this: Isaiah 55:11 – “so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” That, sister, is a promise I cling to daily. That He will be able to use my ramblings for His honor and His glory. His Word is powerful and can accomplish way more than I ever could.
I have tried to encourage you to “throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles”. We are in the fight of our spiritual life here. We can’t afford to be complacent. I have also tried to encourage you to “run with perseverance the race marked out for” you. God has a specific plan for each and every one of us. He wants to come along beside us and led us home. We just have to follow.
So, princess, as we begin the journey of another year, it is my prayer that you will share this blog with someone else so that we can reach the world one person at a time. Your labor is not in vain when done for The Lord. He is faithful to make sure that His Word does not return to Him in void. Let’s keep on walking together until He comes back for us.
