“At times, we’re not much different than the Hebrews wandering the desert. Sometimes we “long for Egypt” by looking to the past or grumbling about the present. Along life’s road, we’ll experience successes and failures, much like the Hebrews in the desert, but we’re destined for the promised land, too, an eternity in God’s presence.” (Excerpt from my incourage Bible)
Destined for the promised land. That’s something to be excited about, y’all. We have something to look forward to – a goal to reach – a race to run.
And even when life gets hard, because it will, we can keep going – because my God is there at the starting blocks. He is with me during the heat, and He is waiting at the finish line.
He’s ready to celebrate with us as we cross over.
Don’t give up.
One foot in front of the other.
God’s got you.
“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” (NIV) James 1:12
