That's the word God keeps putting on my heart. For several weeks it's been perseverance. This week the phrase "Remain in Me" has been added to that. "Remain in Me and persevere."
The other day, I was listening to a Christian Radio station and they announced their daily Bible verse. Can you guess which one it was? Here let me show you.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off all extra weight, especially the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1 NLT
Let me count the ways this pertains to me and my life at this moment. Can I share a secret with you? I haven't been persevering very well. I'm not in spiritual or physical shape to be running any race right now and on top of that I feel like God litterally wants me to start running. Like for real, feet pounding the pavement, huffing and puffing till my heart falls out running.
I'm the queen of excuses, which is what my Thursday post will be on but for today I just need to pray. I need to persevere..and I need to remain in Jesus.
Thank you for reading my ramble.
Remember: Remain in Jesus and persevere today.
