I painted this watercolor as a poster illustration for a friend who writes poetry…I think he’ll like it.
One thing I noticed when I was researching photos of horses running in races was that they never seem to be paying attention to one another. In the human “race,” though, that is easier said than done. It is often very difficult to just keep one’s eyes on one’s own situation without comparing or wondering why someone else gets “the miracle” or “the blessing.”
The bible encourages believers to “run with endurance the race that is set before us” in Hebrews 12:1 and, although we are together in it as fellow believers, we must each decide, everyday, to “keep running,” to persevere, while clinging to Christ under the set of trials uniquely given us. Is it easy? No, it is a daily battle, both to keep going and to keep one’s eyes on Christ alone and not on our circumstances or the other “runners.” But this race, which often feels so long, is but a moment, and the rewards will be…well, why don’t I let our heavenly Father tell you Himself?
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him.” I Corinthians 2:9
