The quote above came from a friend's blog as she was reflecting on her life the past year. Obstacles. We all encounter them. It is just a matter of seeing life as very very good inspite of them....and maybe because of them. It might make life just a little easier if we accept that obstacles are as much a part of life as waking up to the sun or going to sleep by moonlight. We know they will show up as we journey through our lives, we just need to find ways to deal with them when they do.
Hebrews 12;1,2 instruct us on how to do that:
" Therefore, since we are surrounded by a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially 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 inititates and perfects our faith."
Our race is set by God. Each one of us has a different course to run, but we are all given just what we need to finish our race and see life as very very good. Obstacles or not, keeping our eyes of Jesus will get us across the finish line!
