Hebrews 12:3 “ Consider him who endured such hostility agains himself from sinners, so that you may not grow weary or lose heart.”
The above picture I inserted reminds me of life and our journey as christians. There are times when things go smooth and times when we are led off track and in different directions. Life is full of up’s and down’s, we are never exempt from trials.
One thing I am being shown by the Holy Spirit is to keep my eyes on Jesus and not lose heart. Focus on Jesus and how much he loves us, not on the trials around us. This is hard to do “yes” …we are human, but with the help of the Holy Spirit we can get there. We can start by calling to Jesus for help immediately instead of allowing the things around us to consume our thoughts. Each day start again and reach out to your Heavenly Father who is always near his precious child.
I thank you for your love for each of us. Help us to turn to you in trials and to never lose hope. Pour your love over us and give us the grace to know you more each day. Amen.
