Promised


Hebrews 11:39 - 12:2
Yet all these, though they were commended for their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better so that they would not, apart from us, be made perfect.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God.

Not complete
without one another
Each of us
has a part
and a place
in the race of life
Hobblers
Walkers
Joggers
Sprinters
Runners
The race waits for us
to find our pace
and take our space
in that great company
where all are accommodated
embraced
enfolded
welcomed
and carried along
by a tidal wave of love
to where Christ waits
to greet us 
and to make us whole.
