Holy Week: Wednesday

Lectionary readings for today are:  Isaiah 50:4-9a, Psalm 70, Hebrews 12:1-3, John 13:21-32

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God."

What weighs us down?  What fears do we have that prevent us from doing what we know we are being called to do?  Perhaps the more important question, is what can we do to overcome it?

While it is not always possible to follow the path we feel called to do so, perhaps we should at least consider it.  To think about it and see what options we have.  Is the path truly blocked or is there a way?  Just perhaps, if we "think outside the box" or consider options that are not conventional/typical there may be an answer.

Do we owe it to ourselves to at least try?
