Not for the Fainthearted

Run the race with endurance, eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith, Who endured the cross by focusing on the joy set before Him.  Consider Him to keep weariness at bay and to slay the dragon of faintheartedness.  Courage–from the word for heart.  Take Jesus.  Take heart.  Press on.  Fear not.  For He is the prize waiting at the finish line.  Run in His freedom.
