I continue to walk the faithful road ahead of me,
though, at times, my feet struggle to move.
It is always Him who upholds when I am weary.
He alone guides my direction with His loving and eternal compass.
Still, other times I find myself rushing,
forgetting the pace of which I am called.
Yet in his wisdom, He begins to slow me.
Reminding me it is in His time and not mine.
Slow down. Pace myself. Enjoy the journey.
That is the only way to see the full road behind –
never forgetting the path which brought me to glory.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, 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, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Hebrews 12:1-3
