So today I start classes at MACC and I am so excited, but at the same time nervous. I found myself constantly thinking about how well I will do and what about this or that. We all do it in one area or another. We allow the power of fear determine our outcome instead of allowing Jesus to be our guide. Part of Hebrews 12:1 and 2 says: And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. NLT. If I keep my eyes set on him and run with endurance I will finish this race. It does me no good to focus on what is and what will be if it isn't on what God's word says for my life.
Today I look to Christ to guide me and show the things I need to do to study right and all the many other things I have to keep up with. There’s an old hymn that says turn your eyes upon Jesus, this is what we all should do today. If you feel overwhelmed stop for a second take and breathe and remember who's watching out for you.
