I drove in this morning in quite a soup of fog, and no I am not talking about the inside of my mind. Although that may also be the case, I was talking about a literal fog. It was so thick I could not really see more than 2 cars in front of my for a little stretch.
That got me thinking about Hebrews 12.
1Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, 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, Hebrews 12:1 New International Version (NIV)
Yes, that large fog cloud reminded me of all the people who have lived these lives before us. Those who have dealt with the same issues with deal with, who lived through similar joys and heartaches. Those who found strength in the same Creator who we get our strength from!
So, wherever you are today, and whatever you are dealing with remember that great cloud from the past that surrounds you, take encouragement from them, and run with perseverance the path you are on! Oh, and lighten that pack, by throwing out those thing with don’t help you move down the path!
