Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us
and persevere in running the race that lies before us. Hebrews 12:1
Today I feel like I am walking backwards in my race towards God. I have prayed, talked to a trusted friend, written to God, and now I am surrendering my life and will to the One who is Compassion. I know I will be given what I need to persevere.
