Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…(Hebrews 12:1 NKJV)
Dear Holy Spirit, When the effort to follow Jesus feels isolating and alone, remind me of these witnesses…. The ones who endured before me. Help me to draw inspiration from their example and stay focused on the path You’ve laid before me. Help me to remember this is all temporary and remind me of the eternal glory of being in Jesus’ presence. In His Name, Amen.
