Looking Down From Heaven

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. (Hebrews 12:1)

Heavenly Cheers

Those looking down are cheering the race.
Applauding the runners not their pace.

Pulling out front does not make them roar.
But trusting in God brings shouting for more.

So ignore the distractions that so easily trick.
keep your eyes upon Jesus through thin and through thick.

When the day comes that you finish the race.
You’ll hear well done, but for now rest in God’s grace.
