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, NIV 1984).
My Musings – There will be “crosses” of our own that we must bear in this life. During these times it may be difficult for us to accept that they have been “marked out for us.” We can either wallow in self-pity or “run [the race} with perseverance.” Made easier if we keep our “eyes [fixed] on Jesus” and on “the joy set before” us.
My Advice – You can do it!
