Can I get a witness?
Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
I'm thankful that God has given us each other to draw strength from and to get faith from. Sometimes our own progress may be stifled or we may not see what is really within us. But when we look at the progress of one another and see that this thing is doable, it will help us to run with patience. There's no magic bullet, no simple trick, our success requires commitment, endurance, persistence and patience. We have to make a conscious effort each day to pray, plan, purge, prepare and pray some more...for God to enter in and carry us to our destination. You can do it, I can do it, but together and with Christ - we can do anything but fail!!
