Dear Lord, I believe by faith that there really is a finish line and that all of my striving will one day end. And I know that You are waiting there for me. May I always be content in knowing that You long to speak these words over me when I see You face-to-face: “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”
Thank you for loving me and for laying down Your life for me. Your fathomless love has the power to change the world, and it is already changing me. Until I see You at the finish line, help me run with perseverance the race marked out for me, fixing my eyes on You, the pioneer and perfecter of my faith. Amen.
(Love Idol, Jennifer Dukes Lee, page 254)
“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. Let us fix our eye on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.” (Hebrews 12:1-2, NIV)
