I’m not sure what you might be facing today, but I want to encourage you to get up and run your race today. Joy isn’t always easy to come by, but with Jesus it is possible. HE endured the cross because there was great joy set before Him. If you have trusted Jesus as your Savior, there is a great JOY set before you as well that you can press towards today.
“…let us lay aside every hinderance and sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith. For the joy that lay before him, he endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself so that YOU won’t grow weary and give up.” – Hebrews 12:1-3
