I spent some time exploring my spiritual pathway and it was nothing less than captivating

This past week I kept hearing these words replay in my head over and over again, “Rivers of living water.” And I thought maybe God is reminding me of when Jesus was talking to the lady at the well. But then I got my daily Bible verse sent to my phone and the scripture said,

 

“Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.” 

John 7:38

 

I thought to myself, “Wow, this is what God wants me to meditate on. I have to be honest, I haven’t exactly been on it with my devotionals and reading this week. So today I thought, let me try another way to spend time with God. Hence, why I decided to take a walk in the park today after church even though it’s been pretty wet and gloomy but I wanted to exercise my spiritual pathway.

Spiritual Pathways are things that you do to find intimacy with God, or to put it another way, how you connect and spend time with God, the things that really move you when you feel the closest to Him. We’ve been talking about this at church and we took a quiz in Bible study and I scored the most when it came to nature. Yes, nature is my spiritual pathway. It may not seem like it, but I do love being outside. Maybe not necessarily rock climbing and hiking mountains but give me a garden and a small gazebo and I am in heaven.

As I walked through the park I thought to myself, why don’t I take some time to just unplug and listen to God. So I took a few pictures and journalled what God was telling me on my walk.

 

He is taking me on a path through the seasons and as this season draws to and end I find myself drawing closer to You.

The path may sometimes get dark but that doesn’t mean God isn’t there.

Sometimes the path that we want to take (the easy one) is not the one God has us to take. He just may have us take the muddy one, the one that gets us sweaty and dirty, and feel like we can’t go on but God pushes us through.

And even though we may lose things we care about along the way, there is always beauty throughout the journey

img_8407

At times we find ourselves alone and confused but even when I get lost I always find myself being led back to Him.

img_8422

You may feel like you’re not getting anywhere but never forget how far you’ve come.

So in the end when we have been stripped away of all the things we don’t need, the things that were holding us down like people and material things. He brings us back to life.

Towards the end of my walk I asked myself, “What are these ‘living waters’ God is telling me that are flowing from my heart?” And I went back to my first thoughts of these words and went to the book of John when Jesus was talking to the Samaritan woman.

 

The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me for a drink?” Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”“But sir, you don’t have a rope or a bucket,” she said, “and this well is very deep. Where would you get this living water? And besides, do you think you’re greater than our ancestor Jacob, who gave us this well? How can you offer better water than he and his sons and his animals enjoyed?” Jesus replied, “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” “Please, sir,” the woman said, “give me this water! Then I’ll never be thirsty again, and I won’t have to come here to get water.”
I found myself being the lady at the well last year. I was dealing with a lot of guilt and regret and I often questioned myself, who am I that Jesus would think I am so worthy of saving, of love? Even after I made promises to him over and over again that I knew I couldn’t keep. Even now as I look in the mirror and am saddened by the woman I had become, I had been. I had been crippled with anxiety and bouts of depression. I contemplated ending my life. I wanted all of my fears to just go away.
But then I remembered who I was and who’s I was. When I think of how Jesus died on the cross He died for everything I had been going through and everything I had been carrying. I get overwhelmed. Jesus knew the sin that the lady at the well was covered in and yet He showed her grace and mercy. He welcomed her as His and offered her living waters and she thirsted for it. I find myself wanting this living water. To be made afresh and new and even though I may find myself afraid at times and asking God why is He taking me through these paths I stand strong on the faith that God is always there and anything I am taken through is for His glory.

I cried out, “I am slipping!”
    but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me.
When doubts filled my mind,
    your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.

Psalm 94:18-19

Times get hard and people make mistakes. But God said that He will never leave you or forsake you. He is yours and you are His. Trust in His word and meditate in His presence. God will guide you through even the worst of times. If He did it for me, He will do it for you.

He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.

Psalm 40:2

I hope that you guys were able to take something from this post. I urge you guys to please reach out and check on your friends. You may never know what they may be dealing with.

 

As always love,

If you think I included you in this post chances are, I have.

If I could blog about the differences in guys I’ve dated in the past three years it would probably go something like this:

 

1. Michael: My first older man. I met him walking up the steps of a club with my friend. What a great feeling it was to be courted by this man. He was everything I never knew I wanted until now. This is man came in to my life definitely at the wrong time wrong place. I had met him a few months after my engagement broke off. I could tell he wanted more way too soon and I just wasn’t ready. I wasn’t looking at the future back then. I wanted to live in my now which wasn’t a bad thing. I needed my now. I needed to experience all the things I missed out on. I needed to be a 22 year old. He’s moved on now and I assume they’re happy but if I could go back I would. My God I would.

 

2. Jesse: Don’t date musicians. Especially ones that live practically on the other side of the country. If I’m being honest a part of me really wanted to be with him but also a part of me just wanted to get back at my ex. He was always busy working which didn’t entirely bother me. The Bible says, “A man that don’t work don’t eat!” But where did that leave me? It was hard enough that he was in Texas and I was in Virginia. And like all my flames this one was kept hidden from the world. I wish it could’ve worked out but when I think about it there’s just no way it would have. You ever meet someone so stubborn that it’s like how could I ever get what I want out of this relationship? Yeah that’s how a lot of my relationships tend to go.

 

3. Trey: If I could go back in time and remove one guy I’ve dated it would be him. I once heard a phrase that goes something like, “The devil will send you a person and make him look like everything you ever wanted.” When we first met I thought to myself maybe God had finally delivered my godly man? Boy was I wrong. Need I remind you this was the guy that got me to read the book Job with him for a week and then weeks later tell me he doesn’t want to go to church with me because he, “Doesn’t do Sunday morning service.” I don’t think I’ve ever been with someone so toxic in my life. Not only did he have alot of past issues but the results of them were being taken out on me. I had never been with anyone who honestly scared me at times. He never put his hands on me but I could see it happening and that was something that scared me the most. I urge women not to rush in to relationships ESPECIALLY with men who have not worked through their past traumas whether it be from parents, past relationships or what have you. I felt God really tug on my heart strings with this one. We only dated for about two months but when I say God SNATCHED me up out that relationship SO QUICK! He made sure I wouldn’t go back, let alone date anyone like that again.

 

4. Chris: This was the Angel I believe God sent me after the last one. Even though we dated for almost four months and completely ghosted each other after an awkward Valentine’s Day dinner I have no hard feelings towards him. He was a sweetheart but he wasn’t the man I was after spiritually. It may seem kinda harsh but it’s true. I wanted someone to push me to be a better woman of God and I also knew that we were just on two completely different paths at the moment. He’s still an amazing person and I don’t think he fully realizes that. God is going to bless him with an amazing woman one day.

 

5. *Joseph: My honorable mention who I actually didn’t date but I will tell you about anyway. This was a guy who I had the BIGGEST crush on for a few months after Jesse and I’m not even one to have crushes but this guy really had me sucked in and didn’t even know it. He was just so intelligent, and cute, and cultured, girl he even spoke French and ugh I could go on! However,  homeboy was not feeling me AT ALL! So yes, even I Angelica have dealt with rejection in some way. Okay maybe he didn’t exactly reject me but he didn’t pursue me either even though I wanted him to. Anyways, God really humbled me with that one but it did teach me that if it was meant to be it would be and if it doesn’t happen then God just has something else for you.

 

I hope you guys are able to analyze the people you’ve dated over the past few years if you’re still single like me. What would you have done differently? What would you not have done at all? I also hope that this teaches you to not settle and to realize that some people just aren’t worth the effort especially if it puts your own mental and physical well being at risk. We’ve all made mistakes, and we all have that one that got away (I have a few but maybe that’ll be a post for another day perhaps?) Anyways, thanks for bringing in September with me. Remember to like, comment, and share!

 

P.s. You didn’t think I was going to use real names did you?

Single at 25

I talk about my being single a lot not because it’s my first choice when writing but because I just feel like it’s what God tells me to write about. I’ve also heard from a lot of women who have read my blog and told me how much they enjoy the posts as well.

When it comes to my life at this point I may not be as financially stable as I want to be or eat as healthy as I should (I am literally eating fries in a Wendy’s parking lot at 10pm while I write this on my phone) but I’m happy.

So as I look back on my life 10 years from now I want to tell people that yes I was single at 25 but I was happy. My life may not be exactly where I want it but everything is where it needs to be.

 

Choose happiness.

 

Maybe that guy that you wish was yours is not the one for you. Don’t waste your life away trying to force it. Life is too short to be worried about men. A lot times we look for relationships just to seek validation from other people. Our validation comes from God and God alone not people. How many couples have gotten together, even married just for the title or to say they have someone only to end up broken-hearted in the end. If I’m being honest, I dated my ex because he seemed “safe” and I knew that I could secure a marriage with him but when our engagement failed it let me know that no matter how much we may want something if that’s not what God has planned for us then it’s not going to happen. And it’s going to hurt when you realize it but if you could avoid the hurt by simply not getting involved then why don’t you? Many times we enter relationships knowing it’s not what God wants for us but we do it anyway.

And brokenness is not a bad thing. It teaches us and makes us stronger but God doesn’t want to see us going through the same situations over and over again.

 

Singleness is not a burden it’s a resource.

 

I know that I said in my last post I was going to take the rest of the month off but when God speaks you gotta move. Also August is practically over now and much of this post was about things I just needed to hear again myself. I’m just as messed up as the next woman but I’m a happy mess.

Three years later: So a girl walks in to a bar…

I’ve been thinking about whether or not I’d want to write a blog post for this month and I guess since I’m alone sitting at a bar on my second glass of wine. Why not?

It’s not that I didn’t want to put anything out this month. I just wasn’t clear on what I’d want to say. But today as I was walking downtown I thought about something that’s been going through my mind a lot lately…

I’m grown.

Meaning I can do what I want. (As long as I keep it holy of course.!)

But I mean honestly, as black people our definition of being “grown” is pretty much paying your own bills, having your own place, and your own car. Which I do. Granted my bills my don’t always get paid on time but them things get paid!

As I was saying, I’m grown. Technically.

The other day my mom casually slipped in over the phone: “Yeah so when are you gonna find a man?” And I said, “Guuuurl it’s slim pickings round here!” Which is very true. I’ve been single for going on 3 years now. 3 whole years since the guy I was engaged to left me for another girl. What’s amazing is that hurt that I was left with stung and made me so angry. I wasn’t sad but I was upset more than anything. One of the songs that was sung at church today was “You are my Healer” and I thought how convenient? Sometimes we go through a pain that at the time we think we could never get through but with the right prayers and with time we can get through it all. God is our healer and He prepares a way for us in the presence of our enemies. When we broke up I stayed in the same city as him. I was afraid I’d run in to him or his new gf. But I had to learn not to be afraid. I made myself better. I worked hard and without going through what I went through I wouldn’t be where I am today.

God is just so amazing y’all!

I’ve been full time at a job that I absolutely love working in ministry with some amazing people and although I haven’t met the right person yet I know God is going to deliver when the time is right. Until then he’s got me in an amazing church surrounded by some great people. I honestly have nothing to complain about and even though I still have times where I ask God “Do you even have a man for me?” I remember that all of that isn’t even important. What’s important is that I’m happy, I’m healthy, and I’m LIVING!

If you ever stop and wonder if your life is really going somewhere just remember that God is taking you places that you can’t even imagine if you just keep your faith in Him. Run the race and know that God has you. Not the universe, but the CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE! Yes, our god who created the stars in the sky to the tiny shrimps in the sea saw it fit to create a person like you in all His glory and splendor! Now I’m not trying to sound too Sunday schoolish but it’s true! I would not have been able to get through all the hurt I’ve been through if it wasn’t for my Lord and Savior.

So I leave you with this, if you’re reading this post right now get to know Jesus. And I’m not talking about that number 45, two Corinthians, textbook, white jesus. I’m talking about the brown skinned, Jewish, fishers of the sea, woman at the well associating Jesus.

Now this is my one and only post for the month August. As always I want my content to be genuine and honestly I don’t have anything else to say. So I’ll see y’all in September. And keep sending your questions and comments. Also I haven’t forgotten about my people who’ve given me suggestions for content. I got y’all!

Put the grocery list away sis

So I’ve heard stories of many Christian women who created lists of their “dream man” and some who believe that they even received one from God. I however, have never felt led to create a list and the thought of doing it made me think that I was wasting my time. BUT the other day I made one out of blue. I put all these things on the list, some realistic and some not so much. Some silly and some so not so suitable for children (I’m human.) Anyways, after I wrote it I put it away and decided that it was done and that I can now say that I made a list. Did I think that it would come true one day? Not really. But I did get some clarity about it while watching a YouTube video a few days after. I started watching this video about a young woman talking about how she made a list of all the things she wanted in a man and eventually got a chance to go out on a date with her “dream man” only to realize that after prayer and discernment, her list of qualities in a man that she thought she wanted was not the man that God wanted her to be with. It made me think back to my list and at that moment I had to ask God not to send me the man that I wanted but to send the man I needed, more importantly the man that He saved specifically for me with the qualities He designed especially to fit me.

 

Maha Maven is the young woman who’s videos I started watching and she makes some really good points. I decided that I would take some of her points and combine them with some of my own that I came up with when it comes to dating as a Christian woman.

 

  1. Stop thinking that every guy you meet may be your husband. This certainly has affected me when it came to dating last year. I would meet a guy and always think, “Well maybe this is my husband?” But it wasn’t. It can become a big distraction and prevent you from keeping your focus on more important things. Like God.
  2. Stay away from toxic men. Don’t even entertain it. You know who these men are so I shouldn’t even have to tell you. But I do have to tell myself at times. Yes, this includes that guy that you know you shouldn’t get involved with but you do anyway because you get lonely and he makes you feel good, wanted, desired. Stop. Just. Stop. It also includes guys who are interested in you but put zero effort into courting you. It seems as if some men expect you to just take whatever bone they throw. Keep in mind that you are not desperate, just because a man shows an interest in you does not mean that you have to entertain it especially if you know this is a man that you should not be getting involved with. If a bit of your gut is telling you that this may not be a good idea then chances are it’s actually the Holy Spirit telling you to flee the situation. 
  3. Obedience is your responsibility. Outcome is God’s. This is a quote from Pastor Steven Furtick that was mentioned in the video. Obedience is not about holding out for sex and remaining abstinent just so God can send you a man. It’s about chasing after God and growing in your purpose so that you live your life happily whether your in a relationship or not.
  4. Singleness is not a burden. You don’t “deal with it” you thrive in it. I truly believe that I saved the best for last. Being single is your chance to accomplish so many amazing things that you can’t always do while you’re in a relationship. Especially when you’re in your twenties. You can switch jobs and move across the country if you wanted to, you could go back to school, you could even start a business. Take this opportunity to not only grow spiritually but grow as a person while taking care of yourself. Get active, visit places you’ve never been before, and most importantly HAVE FUN!

 

 

Here’s a link to the video I watched the other day. I hope you guys click on it and check out some of her other videos too. Thanks for reading and remember to like, comment, and share!

 

I lie in the dust; revive me by your word

If I could be honest for a moment, sometimes I take for granted God’s word. Here I am with about three Bibles in my house plus the app on my phone and yet I’ll still go days without opening one of them up and reading it. Today I read a story in my devotional about a young boy in China who wanted a Bible so badly. He fasted and prayed and even weeped longing for a Bible until God blessed him with one and here I am with one in constant access to me. Well I know that the Word holds truth and wisdom and love but why do I still so often take it for granted? It’s kind of like exercising (which I can admit that I absolutely hate.) Don’t get me wrong, working out is great and I believe everyone should do it myself included but it’s just not my thing even though I know I should. But when I do push my myself to work out I feel so good after, like I really accomplished something that I know is good for me. Sometimes I just dance alone in my room, that counts right?

Well exercising is similar to me reading my Bible, once I finish I’m just like, “Wow, I really needed that. This book is so perfectly written why don’t I do this more often?” I think one of the reasons why I don’t is because I doubt myself and the enemy will tell me, “You won’t be able to understand this or be able to retain this information for future use.” But that’s not true, I have to speak to the devil and tell him, “Yes, yes I can read this and apply it to my life. You’ll see!”

One of the things I’m learning to do is to just get up and do the work especially when it comes to my walk with God and I definitely can’t let the devil fill my mind with doubt. We as Christians can’t stay stagnant when God wants us to constantly grow and evolve as believers.

Make the time to read your Bible. It’s some pretty amazing stuff in there.

30 I have chosen to be faithful;
    I have determined to live by your regulations.
31 I cling to your laws.
    Lord, don’t let me be put to shame!
32 I will pursue your commands,
    for you expand my understanding.

Psalm 119:30-32

Take yourself out

I woke up Saturday morning and really took some time to explore Richmond. But I realized that I was doing more than going to yard sales and walking around Brown’s Island. I was taking myself out on a little Saturday date. I got some exercise in, took some pictures of the city, and even treated myself to some nachos. It was great. More often then not I’ll find myself thinking of things to do around the city and say to myself, “Well that would be nice to do on a date.” But why wait for a date? (Especially if you’re me and your dating pool is as dry as the Sahara desert but anyways) We can’t always depend or even expect a man to come in and take us somewhere romantic, plus why should we even wait for one? I can tell you now that one thing I absolutely hate doing is waiting for people which is why I choose to do most things alone. When it comes to seeing things for the first time or trying out a new food spot I’d rather do it by myself. I like to soak up the atmosphere, take my time and if I don’t like it then I can leave when I please. Even with having a day off on the fourth it still felt like the longest week ever and I wanted to take the time to do something I wanted to do while I had the opportunity.

  It’s not only about taking yourself out, you may just need to take a bit of time to focus on you. Try taking just one day stepping away from the extracurricular activities with friends and family. Take a weekend to not make any plans and just go where the spirit leads you whether it be a museum, a new bar, or to get some ice cream.  So don’t ever be afraid to do things alone, plus you never know who you’ll meet or run in to 🙂

Or you may be like me and just need to catch up on some sleep and blogging!

I am my hair.

It’s Friday afternoon. I just got off work early and it’s payday. I’m on my way to the city to go to my old beauty supply store because hair in the county is hella overpriced and I am not paying $4 for some braiding hair. But as I’m standing in line with my five packs of hair, gold clips, and jar of edge control I notice the long line of black women ahead of me. All different ages with similar items in hand like me. We are all about to get our hair done for the next few days or weeks. While I stood there waiting I realized that this was one of the things that made me so proud to be a black woman. It’s not about having my hair done, it’s about getting to experiment with the vast amount of hairstyles black women have so creatively come up with.

 

When my parents separated I, of course had to learn how to manage my own hair from a young age. Even before then it had become my responsiblilty to brush my hair in the mornings before school. It wasn’t something that I particularly liked doing but I had grown to love it. It took a lot of practice and lots of trial and error. I’ve had very successful looks and of course very bad ones. I’ve experiemented with various weaves, relaxers, and hair color on many occasions, sometimes interwining the few. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on various hair products, extensions, and tools. Doing my hair has went from being a chore when I was younger, to now becoming a sort of stress relief practice for me now. Once I get settled in at home and get all of my things together and turn on my music, I just enter in to a different mode. And then seeing my myself transform just brings me this confidence that fuels me. But it’s not just about my outward appearance. Having my hair done honestly makes my life so much easier in the mornings. How convienient is it to just get up, take your head wrap off, spend the next 10-15 minutes getting ready and go!

 

I understand that working with people who don’t have the same hair passions as you can get a little awkward though. I’ve had my fair share of white coworkers giving me that, “Is that a weave?” or “Did your hair grow overnight!?” *sarcasticly* Yes, it’s weird and partly offensive. I have never minded the questions from other black women because I get more of an appreciation from them rather than an attraction from white people, it’s like I can see the questions coming and I cringe but hey, we’re all a work in progress I guess.

 

Don’t get me wrong, I love my natural hair but it’s a chore that’s why I’ve been trying various protective styles over the past year. Crochets have been my go to lately. They last for a good amount of time and I’m able to easily oil my scalp. They are also a way for me to use way less heat. My hair has endured so much heat damage that my curls have just finally started to come back from years of damage. Even though I’ve been natural for some years now I had never really felt good about myself unless my hair was straightened and then once my hair did really start to grow my curls were already so damaged that I still couldn’t do a regular wash n go without looking a hot mess. Once I began to realize that my hair needed more moisturizing and less heat, I learned the products that worked for me and I was able to decipher which hairstyles I could work with. YouTube has been my best friend and is where I learned how to do everything I know except braid. At the moment I’m really obsessed with braids so you may see me with more braided looks this summer!

 

Check out a few of my looks from the past and remember; adding any kind of hair can look natural if you do them just right!

img_7945

 

I just want to encourage all my girls and some guys out there as well to love your hair. Try some new styles if you want. Get those braids, do the big chop, work them bundles boo! Whatever you do, do it because YOU want to. Love you hair and embrace being a black woman. As the great Tracy Turnblad said, “Hair doesn’t have to just sit there like a dead thing on your shoulders!”

You can’t negotiate with God

It all seems so easy being that person who’s always giving others advice, particularly women when it comes to relationships. Yes, I’ve had my fair share of dating mishaps and mistakes but there are some things that I haven’t experienced. There comes a time when someone you may know becomes involved in a situation they know they shouldn’t be in. You convince yourself that this could never be me. But what happens when it does become you? I’ve always been the person that said, “Girl that could never be me in a relationship like that.” But after examining some things going on in my life I had to tell myself, “Hey, that kinda is you!” So then what’s next? How do you stop yourself from going down a path you clearly know you have no business going down? What do you pray? Who do you talk to? How do you even convince yourself to stop? These are real questions that I’m asking because I personally need to know. I’m not perfect, I know temptation usually comes when I least expect it or when I’m moving in a new direction in my life. But it’s about discipline. (Easier said than done.) No one likes to be disciplined and we certainly don’t want to discipline ourselves but as I sit here in my room typing this on my phone I can’t help but to tell those of you going through similar situations that it will get better. The Lord your God will make a way.

“The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭

Which brings me to the title of this post. You can’t negotiate with God no matter how much you want something. If it’s meant to be yours then it will be. And if it isn’t then have the confidence to know that God will bring you something better. Hold on to that and let that be your comfort. It may hurt, it may burn and leave you heartbroken and feeling as if you’re missing out on something great. But God makes no mistakes. Hold on to His word and know your worth.

Get the work done

First thing I did when I got home was crack open a cold one. I don’t even drink during the week, let alone have that drink be a beer but it was THAT kind of day. Like all of my weeks this one has been especially long but it’s comforting to know that in just a few days I’ll be able to push everything aside and relax on the beach. It’s not always easy getting through day to day life and taking on new responsibilities while working full time and maintaining somewhat of a social life but it is possible.

 

But that’s just where I’m at. I choose to use this time while I’m single to do what I can and go where I can (If my schedule allows). But I need to focus more. Lately I’ve been caught up in some distractions which has made me realize that that’s not what my focus needs to be on right now.

 

Let me be a little more straightfoward. I’ve recently had a few guys come back in to my life and yes it’s all fun and games for now that is until your feelings start getting involved and your stuck thinking, “Wow God, maybe you removed this person from my life for a reason.” Or, “Maybe it’s for the best it didn’t work out and we can’t be together right now?” That last one hurt. But that’s just the way life goes. I can’t force God to bring someone into my life if He knows that I’m not ready. I just have to force myself to listen. Which I do, but believe you me it sure is tough.

 

Keep your focus on what God is calling you to do right now whether that’s taking on another job, working in ministry, or becoming someone’s mentor. Maybe God is calling you to reach out to other people and do some networking. Whatever it may be use your singleness to listen out for God. My roommate talks about realizing your purpose and up until moving in with her I had never really thought about what MY purpose was. I mean, I knew that we all have a purpose, but I never really thought to analyze what mine may be. God is calling each and every one of us to do something. It may not always be for our benefit, it could very much be to help someone else out. Either way, don’t let your singleness and eagerness to find a partner distract you from what God is doing in your life right now. Focus on the prize and run the race.

 

I guess being 25 has given me a boost of maturity and is not so bad afterall.

 

 

“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.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬
