1 Timothy 6:11-12 (NIV)
Final Charge to Timothy
11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Hebrews 12 NIV
Therefore, 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, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
I CAN GO THE DISTANCE ~
Be determined not to quit on things in life. Each day holds so many things and yet one truth. God is the creator of each of our lives and wants us to live in freedom. Get rid of things that keeps you from pressing forward or holds you back. RUN this race of life with perseverance!
Fix your eyes upon Jesus and do not grow weary and lose heart. The enemy of your soul wants you to stop pressing toward God. He wants to divide you from the truth and from blessings to come. We can't always see the devil in action, but he comes in when we least expect it. Be careful and guard your heart in all you do in life. We must keep pressing toward to the goal until we enter Heaven.
2 Timothy 4:7-8 NIV
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness,which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
It is not an option to stop living for Jesus in life! Think about it, a made up mind to serve him and a willing to press forward is a must in life. God has greater things ahead for each of us each day of our lives. Plant some hope today and see blessings that surround your life today. Speak words of life unto yourself today and that will spread out to others. Be an example everywhere you go of what is right. You can do this and purpose this a good day!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Thank you for taking the time to read this and forward it to your friends.
