Run With Endurance

Hello Beloved!

One of my primary goals this year is to pace myself. With so many goals and dreams the idea of accomplishing them all as quickly as possible sounds exciting.

Well, until I burn out.

If a runner gives all they have at the beginning of a race they won’t have enough strength to finish. Winners are those who know that consistency, pace, and endurance can add much more value in the long run. The same is true for our lives.

Hebrews 12:1 has been a sure reminder for me regarding this truth.

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. – ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬

When we run with endurance we don’t have to rush today because the race doesn’t end today. In this week’s video, I’m sharing how we can focus less on running fast and more on finishing strong. Enjoy!

 hope this week’s message was a blessing to you. If you know a friend who would also be blessed by this video will you be sure to share it with her? For even more Beloved encouragement be sure to download the Beloved Women mobile app available for free in the Apple and Google Play stores.

Wait for the Lord

Even through troubles and trials, the writer of Psalm 27 encourages us to wait.  The hope we have during waiting comes not from what we’re waiting on, but Who we’re waiting for. “Wait for the Lord”, we are reminded. The tension of not being where we want to be or having what we want to have can many times steal our focus off God. But if we want to be strong and courageous during waiting we must know that it is God who will provide.

If you are in a waiting season and need some encouragement while you wait, this video is for you. Enjoy!

Don't Forget Your Dream

We all start with a dream. Life, however, has a funny way of redirecting us to other things. The demands of adulthood, the doubt in our hearts, and the negativity of others can all lead us astray from the God-given dream placed in our hearts. But God still sees us and has a plan for our lives. He has not forgotten the dream. 

I recently had the opportunity to chat with author, speaker, and pastor Jo Saxon about her latest book “The Dream of You: Let Go of Broken Identities and Live the Life You Were Made For“.

In this chat you’ll learn:

  • How understanding your identity in Christ helps you to fulfill your God-given purpose.
  • The importance of understanding the season you’re in so you can achieve your dreams.
  • How to let go of the unrealistic expectations you place on yourself.
  • What the imposter syndrome is and how to overcome it.

Please enjoy this encouraging conversation and be sure to comment and let me know; what dream has God placed on your heart?

Then be sure to share today’s video with a sista-friend who’s in need of this type of encouragement.

Love always,

Christina
