Hebrews 12:1-2

Just thought I'd share these verses with you today, as I am just about finished the teacher work week but not very close to being ready for the start of school.

You are my "cloud of witnesses". As I am so busy with trying to get things ready for school, whether it is writing lesson plans or trying to orient myself to KCA, I need to keep my eyes on Christ, the only source of stability and peace.

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.
