How different would our lives look if we applied the energy we use to talk ourselves out of things toward forward motion?
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the 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 initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.” –Hebrews 12:1-2 NLT
Sure…. a good worship tune sung with an authentic heart and voice can be most amazing. But the most beautifully orchestrated music in the world is NOTHING compared to the masterpiece God can create with our very lives. So please, my friends – let’s not let the noise of our circumstances silence the beautiful song our Maker is composing in our lives.
