"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me...Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me." Psalm 51:10, 12

When David was confronted with his sin, he cried out for mercy and forgiveness.  It's here in Psalm 51 we also find the key ingredients for endurance to run the race..."to keep on keeping on".

Endurance is critical when times are challenging. We may face stress, sorrow or solitude; doubt, distress or defeat. These struggles,  given to God, can make us stronger.  

As stated in Hebrews:
"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and then sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus..." Hebrews 12:1-2

Focus determines outcome. 
If we keep our eyes on Jesus, His endurance will strengthen us; His victory will convince us; His love will encourage us and His power will fill us!

God will sustain us! He can create a pure heart; He can renew a steadfast spirit in us; He can restore the joy of our salvation and He can grant us a willing spirit.  Ask, as David did, and find daily what will be your source of endurance for the journey.  

Remember, a clean heart is a joyful heart,
