April 19–Running with Perseverance–Living in Freedom and Joy!

Keep going! Keep choosing life and truth! Keep choosing freedom and joy! Keep choosing to seek the LORD! 

We must continually make the choice to walk with our God–to run with great perseverance of faith–every single day of our lives.

So! Let’s get rid of ALL of the the junk, ALL of the sin and ALL of the empty, self-focused thinking, speaking and acting that holds us back, weighs us down and trips us up. (Don’t read that too quickly! You know we’ve got to get real with ourselves about ourselves!)

Let’s get on with the job of being a people of faith–running our life-race with determined and deliberate perseverance as we follow our Lord Jesus. Let’s move forward with our eyes firmly focused on Jesus–and on His way of doing things.

Let’s trust our God who walks-runs-leaps-stands with us, giving us His love, peace and strength to endure ALL the hardships we experience. And let’s put our faith in Jesus–the author and perfecter of our faith–who gives us His joy no matter what our day brings.

So! Let’s choose to get rid of ALL the junk now so that we may enjoy deep and sweet fellowship with our Lord during these earth-bound, beginning days of our eternal life with our Abba. That is freedom!

And let’s choose to fix our eyes firmly on our Lord Jesus, ALL that He has already accomplished and ALL the power He has for us so that we may persevere victoriously ALL the days of our lives! That is joy!

…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 perfecter 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

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
