Let Us Run With Perseverance the Race Marked Out For Us...

On The Wings of Faith

Spread your wings of faith and fly
Don’t let opportunities past you by
Rise above your impossibilities
Soar over your adversities
Don’t let doubt scheme
It destroys your hope and dreams
Doubt is your worst enemy
It brings fear and agony
Doubt closes but faith opens the door
So fly on the wings of faith and explore
You can’t see the wind but it blows
That’s the way faith flows
Without faith you can not please God
So fly on the wings of faith and rise above the odds

On my way into work this morning, God gave me the most amazing gift! I still can't believe it! I had to take a picture!! The picture above is of a beautiful rose that is still red and alive in days worth of many inches of snow and ice. The only one in the entire rose garden on Georgetown's campus to make it into the sunlight. What a gorgeous miracle!!! The sun was shining on it and the snow around it was sparkling. People were just walking by, not noticing it. But I stopped dead in my tracks as soon as I saw it and grabbed my camera. Thank you God for showing me that there is beauty in hope, strength, and endurance...and that I am never alone.

Hebrews 12:1-3
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

  1. That's MY rose! Thanks for showing me that life is full of faith and hope. We all have struggles that we deal with. However, it's how we survive and come out of those struggles that marks us different and makes us stand tall -- like the single rose peaking it's head out of the pile of snow--where all other roses gave up and slept -- the one rose, despite the struggles came out and wanted to greet the sun, even if it maybe for the last time. Perserverance, dedication and motivation! Enough said! Love you to pieces, Katie McNemar! :)
