In this life it is easy to lose heart. It is so tempting and sometimes ensnaring to focus on earthly deeds, daily routines and present concerns. But The Lord has indeed promised us a true land of the living, residing with Him eternally when we leave these earthen vessels, these dusty tent. May our eyes be tilted to the heavenlies each morning and nigh and may our minds be sharply fixated on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. He will give us the strength we need daily to run our race.
