Day 21 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our 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 ESV

Today Lord I’m focusing on You. I’m in a race, a marathon. There are a cloud of witnesses who have run the race before me. I’m dropping the weights and sin that trips me up. I see You at the finish line. You are the goal. And you are my Perfect Example. You endured the cross though You despised the shame.  Now You are rewarded with the seat at the right hand of Your Father. So as I run this race I look to You. I’m not looking to my right or left at the other competitors. I look to You. I’m not focusing on the fatigue or distant to the end. I look to You.
