I think of this and can't help but think about Jesus. Does he do that as he watches us on this crazy journey called life? I can just picture him twisting and turning as I struggle to make it through the tough situations. I see him running to God and crying out on my behalf from time to time. Does he put his hands over his eyes when I am missing the mark? He knows the choices I will choose, but looking away to spare himself something as his heart breaks. Does he cheer out loud when I get it right, calling the angels over and saying, "She did it! I am so proud"!
It brings my heart such joy to think of Jesus this way. The video of Aly Raisman's parents last night embedded this image of Jesus into my mind. I hope I never forget it. We can be sure that Jesus is right here with us, hoping and praying we get it right. He runs to God on our behalf. He sings over us. It is to our Father's glory that we live out our lives well. I pray this brings you as much hope and joy today as it has brought me. Let's keep running this race we are in, never giving up. Always holding on to Jesus, until he returns or calls us home.
