Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
You ever felt so empty that you just want to give up and run away? There are days when I just want to get in my car and drive away. Like that would help! But when we read this there are people in heaven that are being my witnesses even when people here don’t believe in me, God does and I am the one who has to lay down everything that keeps me weighted down. The world will hold us back and put us down. But God is there to pick us up, just as long as we don’t give up and run the wrong way. I want you to know God believes in you and so do I. When even when your family or friends don’t believe in you, remember who is running this race with you He wont leave you.
