Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus.

- Hebrews 12:2

We all have a race to run that has been set before us.

And, each of us has a special path that God has placed in our lives. When the pressures of life and the burnout tend to creep in, we may have moments where we feel like giving up altogether. We may feel stuck and as though we aren’t making progress.

It is in these moments where we need to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus the most!

Growing the kingdom of God is a full-time job that doesn’t have a retirement plan.

We are encouraged to keep going no matter what challenges arise.

Thankfully, we can have peace, hope and assurance knowing that God is by our side the whole journey.

Know that He has not called you to run your race alone, for He is holding you by your right hand, ready to strengthen you as you keep persevering!

There are people that need your wisdom, insight, prayers and encouragement. There are people that need to hear your testimony, to hear how God has changed your life, to read your writing, to hear your singing for the Lord, to see your art, or to come in contact with your business.

God is not done using you!

As you keep your eyes on Him, He will guide you in your race. He will let you know when you need to pause to refuel and when you need to step on the gas.

Take a deep breath and fix your eyes on Him. As long as He is your focus, His strength will cause you to persevere!

Hear Him whispering to you today: “Keep going, beloved. I am here, at your side. Don’t look to the right or to the left, but keep your eyes on me. You’re going to make it!”

Prayer: Lord, help me to keep my eyes fixed on you even during the difficult parts of my race. Thank you for guiding me and showing me when to slow down and when to speed up. I know you are with me, and I choose to grip your hand in childlike trust today.  

With Love,
Sarah Sherstad

Thank you …. These devotionals speak to me so much. It’s almost like I continually hear exactly what I need, most times I read them, at exactly the right moment.

The company that I worked for sold… the Corporate office for the new company absorbed my job as well as several others . My last day was June 30th, this was something I needed to hear. I’m spending time with my family while looking for another job, but realize that God has a plan and maybe I needed to slow down and see what is important. Thank you
