Imagine a runner whose head is down and lacking focus on the goal. Imagine her body straining to move forward while the weight of a heavy boulder behind her and roped-tied to her shoulders forces her arms to stretch back instead of pumping her body into stride…
The runner represents you, and she represents me. When we fail to run our race with a focused gaze and perseverance, we need to pay attention to this scriptural truth: Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith (Hebrews 12:1-2).
