I love this line especially, Lesley! “ It is not about how much faith we have, but Whom our faith is in.” Thank you!

This is encouraging on so many levels. It’s nice to know we’re being cheered on by those who have gone before. And to realize that none of the people in Heb. 11 were perfect, and that some at the end of the chapter didn’t have miraculous outcomes, helps us in our everyday battles. We won’t see some outcomes until heaven. But we walk by faith that God has everything in hand.

Lesley,
This is just beautiful and just what my heart needed to hear today! My heart is homesick for my “heavenly homeland” and I am weary from persevering through this dry land. How like God to grant blessings to faith that is as small as a mustard seed! It’s not about us; it’s all about Him. Love this!
Blessings,
Bev xx

Beautiful post, Lesley! Combining running, faith, and hope hits on all cylinders for me. 🙂 The verses in Hebrews have always been a comfort to me – while struggles are guaranteed in this life, lack of ease does not equate to a lack of faith. Beautiful!

Lesley, this is the second blogpost where I’ve come across Her 12:1-2. I’m sitting up and taking notice. 🙂 It is so important that we choose to walk (or run) in faith. Thank goodness we don’t have to muster it all up in our own strength, but that God gives us what we need to persevere.
