Shedding what slows you down.
Let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1 (NLT).
We are running a race of endurance, not a quick 5-minute dash. Pace yourself in your Christian walk, by having goals that will help keep you focused. As you move along in life, you will become aware of things that you will have to remove. Things that hold you back and slow you down.
What is distracting you from reaching your goals? What habits are not beneficial for you, stopping you from achieving your goals? Concentrate on just one distraction at a time and resolve to remove it.
Simplifying your life by doing what counts.
Think about your goals, take an honest look at your life. You know what you must do, now is the time to start doing it. Focus on getting the victory in your life. Stop allowing distractions to hold you back. There is no short cut to success, no magic formula. It is hard work and dedication. Focusing on what you want and becoming single-minded will help you achieve your dreams and goals.
EVERYTHING IS HARD BEFORE IT BECOMES EASY
