When I was in high school, I would get really tired early evening. So, I would fall asleep around 7 and I would tell my roommate (Andrea) to wake me up at 8 or 9pm, so that I could study for whatever test/quiz that I had the next day. Almost always, she would wake me up, and I would refuse to get out of bed- night time naps are really hard to recover from! Rudy and I took a two hour night nap today, and we are both struggling to bounce back to life at 8:44pm. Sleep is one of my most favorite things, and my bed time gets earlier and earlier... Night naps are beginning to fade into early bed times and I am pretty OK with it.

In Hebrews 11, there is a giant list of one person after another and all the incredible actions they took, by faith. True faith, is the closest thing to a superpower that I have ever seen.
Hebrews 12 really pumped me up:
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
