Rise above your fears and fancies into My Joy. It will suffice to heal all your sores and wounds. Forget all sense of failure and shortcomings, all the painful jolts and jars, and trust Me, love Me, call upon Me.
Your discipleship is an obstacle race. “So run that ye may obtain.” Obtain not only your hearts’ desires, but obtain Me – your souls’ Joy and Haven.
What would you think of the runner who threw himself on the ground in despondency at his first hurdle?
Over, and on and up. I am your Leader and your goal.
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection;
lest that by any means, when I have preached to others,
I myself should be a castaway. 1 Corinthians 9:27
