So, for today’s conversation we will be discussing being determine to run your race. In others words, stay on the path that God has set before you. There are times where life will become very hard to endure but it is so vital that you stay focus and determine in those seasons.

I know many of us have experience very stressful things. Since the moment that sin enter this world, life for us humans have been subject to sin and death. Therefore everyone of us are, will, and have experienced different degrees of pain, sorrow, and suffering. The great news is that now that Jesus has die as the perfect sin offering and has poured out His Holy Spirit. This means that we are able to overcome temptations during those wilderness seasons. When we make the secret place a priority, meaning when we make time with Jesus daily and a high (very high) priority, then we really will start to experience joy, peace, love, His rest! We have to learn to stop looking at the distractions, the hardships, the loneness, the stressors more than Jesus. Peter walking on the water was a perfect example of this. Once I started DRINKING spiritually and stop thinking (worrying) I have so much joy and peace.

When I speak to other followers of Christ who are going through their difficult seasons I notice they, as well as me, that we are super desperate for some form of relief. We also rack our minds with how did we get here and why us. When I look back to the mindset that took me so long to get right before the Lord delivered me, I finally got to a place where I just let go, surrender, and even more kept my focus on the Lord. Basically I realized that God was the only one that could change my circumstances. The issue was not my circumstances but my perspective was.

Also, I want to encourage you to not go back to your old habits (the old man’s ways or your old life before Christ) but be determined to see your journey with Jesus through. One of the things that keeps me going is the desire to see the outcome. I don’t want to miss out on what God will do and what that path’s destination will look like. I don’t want to be like ancient Israel who had to wait 40 years to enter into their promise land. My last bit of encouragement on this topic is to remind you that God sees everything and He is a balanced God. One of the scriptures that I appreciate is from Psalm 30:5, For His anger endureth but a moment, and His favor is life: weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. Although you may be weeping now, there will be a time that you will have so much joy that the past pain will have no weight on you. Today in my life I have so much joy. The joy of the Lord is amazing!

So to conclude, be determine to stay on the path and to keep your focus on Jesus. Trust Him to see through your testing and trials because one day you will be able to testify how God lifted you to a higher and better place. God really is good!!!

Side Note: Each season has a purpose.

Monday Morning Coffee question: Any prayer request?

Remember to take it one day at a time, always stay encourage in the Lord, and remember that God loves you soooo very much, so remember to love Him back!!!!
