Word-Filled Wednesdays: PRESS ON!


I am so thankful for my salvation! I am so grateful to our great Lord and God, Jesus Christ for having compassion on me, yet while I was still a sinner - in enmity with God the Father.

In view of God's mercy upon me, I desire to lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and run with endurance the race that is set before me, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of my faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2)

Will you join me today and follow hard after Christ Jesus our Lord?

Get on your mark.
Get set.

GO!!!

Don't forget to make your way over to the 160 Acre Woods for more encouragements in God's Word today!

Word Filled Wednesdays


Forever His, and forever grateful!

  1. Pressing on with you dear Sister!!
    It's so easy to feel like giving up but the rewarding part isn't where we are in the race but that we keep going in the race toward the ultimate prize, our Heavenly Father, himself.

  4. I was just praying this morning that the Lord would continue to give me strength and endurance in this marathon that I feel like I am running!

    I am with you, pressing on and looking to the things that are unseen.

  5. I love the verses and the photo! It's neat how the Lord brought to both our minds different verses on running a race.

    I enjoyed reading your profile as well. We have a lot in common. :)
