YOU HAVE A PACKED STADIUM SO DON'T QUIT!
At times we can think nobody is cheering for us. We feel defeated to win because we think noone's there to think we can. But if we would just change our perception on the "who" in our stands--we would cross the finish line, victoriously! We gotta believe that the stands aren't filled with OUR fans...they are filled with God's. Heaven is the true audience. Angels and martyrs and saints FILL your stadium & they chant your name, waving that foamy #1 finger at your every completed-lap. And they are so excited for you, they never take a seat. God & his holy, screaming fans, WANT you to make it. Maybe you can't see them, but if you are concentrating on the finish line, do you really need to? Don't get distracted looking for WHO is cheering for you. Your fans are closer than you think. They are in your heart--the applause of heaven--and they are with you til the finish line!
