The Cost of Endurance ~

Track-Running-Race_Sven-Hoppe_i1 from common photo archive

The Bible says to run the race,
with endurance in our steps
to jump over any obstacles
to pass by the risky objects.

This race is not an easy one,
there’s a cost for enduring
most of us can’t stay the course
because sin can be so alluring.

But, we are called to this race,
to be patient and persistent
and in our daily run with faith
we must be pressure resistant.

Before we step onto the track,
we must warm-up our endurance
then work-out any resistance
so we’ll run with God’s assurance.

There will be many roadblocks,
each day we’ll face head on
but, if we trust in God’s power
to them we won’t be drawn.

In this race we’ll have to give up,
things that bring us pleasure
but, when we set them aside
we’ll add to our eternal treasure.

The faithful race is long and hard,
no one said it was trouble-free
but, if we keep our eyes on the goal
we’ll run it filled with joy and glee!

1 Corinthians 9:24-25
King James Version

“Know ye not that they
which run in a race run all,

but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.

And every man that striveth
for the mastery is temperate

in all things. Now they do it
to obtain a corruptible crown;

but we an incorruptible.”

On My Feet ~

new-2

When my troubles are many,
and my burdens are too great
when my knees fold and buckle
under worries immense weight.

When my heart grows weak,
and my soul is full of sorrow
when I need more that a hug
to even begin to face tomorrow.

When my legs can’t carry me,
and my back is in a slump
when I’m needing extra muscle
to get me over the next hump.

When my mind is dazed,
and confusion has me in a fog
when I need a clear thought
so I can see through the smog.

I lift up my drooping arms,
and raise my trembling hands
I give Jesus my anxious heart
so on my feet ~ I can stand.

He takes from me my burdens,
lifts the weight off my soul
He heals my current affliction . . .
and makes a way for my soles!

Hebrews 12:12-13
King James Version

“Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down,
and the feeble knees; And make straight paths
for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned
out of the way; but let it rather be healed.”
