You Are Home

“Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith” (Hebrews 12:1b-2a, NIV).
Don't obsess on the little problems that come up each day on this journey of life. Recognize each struggle for what it can be–an opportunity and a lesson to carry you further to the goal. When you climb a mountain and concentrate on the hardship of each step, you never see the beautiful reward waiting for you at the summit.
Regard each step up your mountain as a springboard toward the top, and don't dwell on each struggle or pain. Keep your eyes on your goal, and then as you climb, each step will become another solid foundation of growth. If you consider each step as a means to carry you to the promise at the peak, your climb will not bring despair, but great hope of the reward that awaits. Never forget that the Lord is your strength. He makes your feet like the those of a deer, and enables your climb (Habakkuk 3:19).

At the end of your climb, God waits with open arms. There are no more problems or pain. The struggle to the top has been worth the rewarding view–the hardship of each step no longer remembered. You have arrived at your destination. You are home.
