This morning as I trained along side my partner I questioned my sanity.  Early morning rides, in the dark and rain, do not seem like the best way to start a day.  And if I focused entirely on my body and emotions I would never get out of bed.  Yet my drive and perseverance comes not from how I feel but in hope of what can be attained by my effort and drive.  There is nothing in the world like finishing a race and achieving a goal. 

Life sometimes calls us back to bed.  We can be overwhelmed with the many obstacles and difficulties in our way.  Our many emotions and feelings can cause us to lose sight of our hope.  Yet God has called each of us for a purpose.  And He wants to complete that purpose in us and through us.  Our hope comes in the knowledge of God's presence and His ability to perfect us for His glory and for eternity.  Today is about the destination and God's desire to move you ever closer to Him and His plan for your life.

Heb. 6:19, "This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil".

I'm reading a book by Charles Stanley called "How to Reach Your Full Potential for God". I've already highlighted MANY points that he's made just in the first two chapters, but this paragraph I read yesterday goes right along with what you're saying. "Your heavenly Father sees you through eyes of love and forgiveness. He sees where you are, but more importantly, He sees the person He made you to be. God sees all the awesome potential and possibilities He created you to fulfill. And if you are willing to discover and align yourself with His plan and purpose for you, He will bless you more than you could ever imagine. God promises to bless you with life at its best. He sees the restored joy, peace, and sense of accomplishment that He wants in your life."
