Heb. 12:12,13 MSG So don't sit around on your hands! No more dragging your feet! Clear the path for long-distance runners so no one will trip and fall, so no one will step in a hole and sprain an ankle. Help each other out. And run for it! It's easy to look at your life, where you came from, how you were raised, the disadvantages you may have had. Perhaps, the traumatic things you may have experienced. Maybe you have felt as if you are a victim. You were dealt a bad hand and now you have to just live with it. No!!! It's time to take back your life. Get up! Stop the pity party and realize that you were created with purpose and destiny. Like the long-distance runner trains for the long haul, you too, must get up, determine to not let anything stop you from crossing the finish line. Sure the terrain might be rough but with the guidance of the Holy Spirit you can avoid every obstacle. He has already scoped out the path before you and He knows how to get you to the finish line. It's time to get up and run for it!
