Running Towards Christ
I’m sure pretty much all of you have seen Forrest Gump. It’s iconic! No scene more so
than when Forrest is running away from his bullies. Jenny shouts, “Run, Forrest! Run!.”
Before everyone’s eyes, Forrest breaks free of his leg braces and runs - without turning
or stopping. He is free from his restraints, and his eyes are fixed ahead.
This is the image I have in my head when I read this verse.
I want to break free of those things that slow me down, that entangle me and get in the
way. I want to have perseverance and focus. I want my eyes to be fixed straight ahead
on Christ, and I want to run towards him without stopping or turning.
Have a Terrific Tuesday,

These verses from Hebrews are so powerful! I, too, hope to keep my eyes and focus on Jesus. Forrest Gump was a great example! Thanks for sharing, Naomi!
