You Can Climb Your Mountain ~

Mountain BanffRon by Ron Manke free photo #5744

I’ve climbed that mountain,
I’ve been to the top
I saw the valley below
I saw how far the drop.

I made it anyway,
I was able to overcome
all the obstacles before me
I was able to overrun.

I didn’t do it alone,
God was with me all the way
He gave me  the power
for which I praise Him today.

You can climb your mountain,
you too can reach the peak
just take Jesus with you
so to be strong and not weak!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 12:10
King James Version

“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities,
in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions,
in distresses for Christ’s sake:
for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

Looking Unto Jesus ~

Looking Unto Jesus ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m looking unto Jesus,
I’m keeping my eyes on Him
for this race I am running
I know together we will win.

The track that’s before me,
keeps going round and round
but with Jesus as my coach
each obstacle I can bound.

If I’m to go the distance,
then I’ll need a place to rest
so I’ll turn to my Savior
for strength to do my best.

As I come upon the hurdles,
thrown at me each day
I will rely on Jesus
to move them out of the way.

This race is long and hard,
there is no easy road
but with Jesus at my side
He’ll help me with my load.

I’m looking unto Jesus,
I got to keeping going straight
for if I take my eyes off Him . . .
I might miss the narrow gate!

Hebrews 12:1

“Wherefore seeing we also are
compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses, let us
lay aside every weight, and
the sin which doth so easily
beset us, and let us run with
patience the race that is
set before us,”

King James Vernon

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.”
