The Race

Our first night of VBS was nothing short of AMAZING! My favorite part was hearing all the cheering for one another during the sack race. We all need someone to cheer us on. Last night several kids continued to fall during the race and the kids waiting at the finish line cheered “c’mon get back up! You can do it!”
“We love because He loves us first.” 1 John 4:19
Maybe you feel alone in whatever race you are running? You might feel like there is no one on earth cheering for you. Be encouraged that Jesus is waiting at the finish line cheering you on. When you fall He is shouting for you to get back up and keep going. He knows you can overcome any trial you face with Him. Jesus loves you and He is on your team. He wants to cheer for you as you finish your race.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. “ Hebrews 12:1-2 NLT

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
