Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. –Hebrews 12:1 

Recently, I was able to travel home, a place of comfort. I was gifted with joy because I was able to worship with my close-knit community of believers while there. 
In those few short hours, I felt encouraged, empowered, and had a better understanding of why all the “new” was happening in my life. I didn’t realize that along the way, my weariness was being replaced with purpose. 

In the past week, I’ve gotten a real adult job, celebrated my amazing husband’s birthday, traveled home, and read a book. I’ve soaked in these little moments the Father has graced me with. 

My encouragement to you is this:  

Open your eyes to see your cloud of witnesses and even be a part of that cloud for someone else. 

We are all running the same race and we are all each others cheerleaders, confidants, brothers, and sisters. Because when we look to our sweet Father, we can see the light from anywhere from the neighbors, the sunrise, a warm cup of coffee with a friend, our church family. Even from the wilderness. 

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. – 1 Thessalonians 5:11
