When we start a new year we often have new thoughts, new hopes and new dreams. Yet, time and time again the walkway seems unlite, cracked and often times not even there.  We read, pray, toss and turn to no avail to see the way. I have found the haunting field glasses of Hebrews 12:1,2 to give me an awareness that eyes are upon me and beckons me to walk forward by faith. “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.”

I am a great admirer of C.S.  Lewis and see him as one of those witnesses that surround me with great cheers to keep running toward my goals.  I would like to share my friends words! 

“The great thing to remember is that though our feelings come and go God’s love for us does not.” ― C.S. Lewis

“Remember He is the artist and you are only the picture. You can’t see it. So quietly submit to be painted—i.e., keep fulfilling all the obvious duties of your station (you really know quite well enough what they are!), asking forgiveness for each failure and then leaving it alone.You are in the right way. Walk—don’t keep on looking at it.” ―The Collected Letters of C. S. Lewis, Volume lll: Narnia, Cambridge, and Joy 1950-1963
