So Great a Cloud of Witnesses...

My son recently sent this beautiful photo of a painting inside a famous cemetery chapel in California. Synchronicity came into play as the next day my Bible lesson had a passage that explained the artwork in Hebrews 12:1. "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us."  

During times of chaos when we feel most alone, it brings comfort to remember those who have won the race are on-high cheering us to press on and not give up.  With patience and trust in God, we too can claim the victory in Christ Jesus.  

Keep your heart full of faith and acknowledge Him and His angels who surround, comfort, and guide you through life's storms.

Love and blessings,
