Morning Coffee - Stripping off every weight!

Let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress.  And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us.
Hebrews 12:1

I love how this is paraphrased! While we think of the putting on of things in the morning, it is better to think of stripping off.  Time for a refill and see what I need to leave behind for the day. 



  1. That's a hard one for me. I know that you are supposed to ask for forgiveness and it is automatically granted, but goodness it is hard just to strip it off!

  2. There are so many things, Jane, that I have trouble stripping off: Worry is a BIG one! It's like an old comfortable sweatshirt that I continually grab to put on.

  3. Good one Sandy! Right now am struggling with leaving my anxiety about my health at the cross and not picking it up again. Thanks!
