On a journey to a very high place?
when you are on a journey to a higher place …
just like a man going into space ..
you cannot take a normal luggage like in an aircraft .
your confirguration and neccessities have to change to fit the specification required to launch you into space
your diet changes you have to be light yet healthy all the way to the top
No one launches into greater heights with excess luggage.. these could be friends.. confederacies in legal vices … places .. emotional attachments, habits ..etc ..reminds me of this
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.
weights weigh us down makes the journey clumsy and most especially distracts us from focusing , makes us insensitive to the v0ice from the tower that directs and stirs us away from danger
one thing is to live life with an aim the other to to live life in other to achieve the aim … living with an aim is useless if there is no plan on what and how to achieve the aim.. so here the word again has this food for our thought
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win.
we all struggle with this at some point in our life and today most especially i ask God for the grace to let Go.. the grace to focus the grace to mind my calling , to mind my business and most especially to stay on track.
