"Be a glimmer"

I was writing in my journal, "The Race," this morning. Generally when I write there, it makes it way to the blog of the same name. "The Race" was begun in 2015 when my husband, Jim, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. But this morning, as I kept writing, I realized this wasn't so much for "The Race" as it was for the "Journeys" blog. 

The Scripture for "The Race" was taken from Hebrews 12:1-2a, which says, "Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith." 

I was thinking about The Race To Run With Endurance. 

It's not just about health, but also our whole life is a race. Keep going. Persevere. Push past every pain, every struggle.

God set us apart to be different, to show the world His Way, His Truth, His Life. 

If we're not showing His Way and delivering His Truth, then we most certainly are not living as He. 

We have succumbed to a lower power to whom we have bestowed more greatness than the God of the universe and The Son who died to set us all free. We have given Satan free reign over our lives and he will never bring us to gloryland. He will control us. We will hear and believe every negative. We will live and die in bondage. We will forget to whom we truly belong. We will think the lust of the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of our thoughts and wants and desires are what is important; are all that matters. 

Satan is the destroyer - one person at a time. He has destroyed many. 

Will he, is he destroying you too? 

God allows events to unfold. God gives us each free will. The choices we make now will determine the outcome of future events. 

Remember His love
Turn Back - Turn Around
Before the hour gets later
Before there is no time

Don't be a statistic ... 

Be a glimmer
a glimmer of light amidst the darkness

"To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet unto the way of peace." ~ Luke 1:79 NKJV
