"Good morning world. What does it take to cross the finish line? And trying to cross the finish line,
have you noticed you are running out of time?
Then thinking about time
have you ever felt like life was a race? Have you wondered who sets the pace? Have you ever questioned if you are early or late?
Well knowing the answers to those questions will always be important , because
The New Year
is coming and in its end there is another year beginning.
But to first wipe the slate clean, and leave the pain sorrow, also challenges of the old year
behind you indefinitely as you are
Running out of time
you first have
to cross the finish line!
So saying that as the New Year gets closer as the old year is leaving us behind while the temperatures dip and dive
there are many hot and cold things crossing my mind as we are getting reading to cross the finish line.
And one of the big things that I am thinking about is the FACT that....
we are running away from pain of the day we are
all running out of time.
Therefore as everybody is getting ready to cross the finish line I think it is very important to think about the Cross that defines time!
Because getting to the Cross if you are not a Christian you are indeed running out of time.
And as we think about how much time we have left as we are running our races, concentrating on our minutes that are attached to what is left of our story,
we will realize going here and there, that our days are full of deadlines, paces, hopes, tears, fears, races, time and drop dead finish lines.
Yes, as I have said before, and will say again many times,
we must realize that
our lives are made up of things that frighten us, as well as the happy times like birth and love deadlines beckoning to us.
Therefore there are many kinds of finish lines,
because there are many things for us to fear and others that we should cheer.
Thus thinking of races, paces, and deadlines, with hope connected to happiness, while concentrating much less on fear with unhappiness connected in the coming New Year,
I see a lot of exciting plans with giddy gladness coming for you and me.
Happily feeling that way
the best in faith,
we are running our races, keeping up with our deadline paces, I have blogs to write and thoughts to be used as witness , also children's books to be written.
And I am additionally looking forward to my
also the divine arrival birth of babies to be born in sets of one, two, or three who are still just happy twinkles in my eye yet to be seen.
Yes in faith I am expecting a great New Year for me!
But if those stories, or loves, and children aren't coming to you physically this year
just as I have been doing for a long time you can still dream of the days coming when those things will
arrive into your life over the
New Year as they appear!
Yes indeed there are pages to turn,
bridges to burn,
lives to start also stop,
races to be won or lost as your heart parts….
Accordingly that means there are finish lines to cross as you are running to the Cross!
Absolutely in running our races keeping up with our deadline paces, there are a lot of things occurring.
And some will be circling around the good happy times coming near in the New Year, but some will involve fear.
So, how can you find good in bad as you walk the floor.
How can you write a glorious book without knowing the ending to the story?
How, can you find
merry in sad.
How can you find cheer in fear, glad in agony?
How can you go across the finish line when you are
running out of time
this New Year?
Well those answers are
Subsequently my friend to get clued in it is very important....
that you know Who has given you the new year to write.
And it is equally important that you know Who is the bright light wanting you to excel in His guidance.
Yes as you are running your races, keeping up with your deadline paces, it is critically important that you Know
Whose arms you are running to....
why crossing the finish line to the Cross is so crucial for you!
Yes indeed to run the race properly you must know who wants you to be happy for Heaven’s sake!
So as you are going through your life writing your storyline it is imperative that you know
in that review,
Who wants you to make the most of your days, while you are running the race that has been given to you.
And that of course means knowing our friend
from whom all protection and blessings flow.
Yes you must know Jesus Christ our
Savior who offers you salvation and saves your soul....
You must know Jesus who has given us everything in heaven, and everything on earth down here below.
Connectively You must know Jesus who has given us the gift of life everlasting with the glowing promise of eternity.
Thus as we write the stories, dream the dreams, and pray our prayers crossing the finish line into the
while taking a look inside our life
let’s not forget who has
and who still is giving us
the lines to write.
Therefore knowing how to cross the finish line as every day we are conquering sins with faith
Let's remember its Jesus' forgiveness that conquers sin and lets us wins the race!
So following our hopes and dreams without and within, while
running our races
I am grateful for the eternal love and protection found in the eternal love on the Cross seen in Jesus face!

and Jesus act of love and bravery that brings everlasting life to you and me forever found on
the Cross and beyond...

Your Prayer of Salvation
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way. Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day. I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.
Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved.
