Tag Archives: Pressing into The Goal

Only One Thing To Do~

The past is gone,
can’t bring it back
for our mistakes . .
we musn’t keep track.

For we all error,
slip-up and fumble
we all teeter
stagger and stumble.

The past is over,
it we must forget
and give to God
all that we regret.

For we’re all broken,
chipped and marred
we’re all injured
damaged and scarred.

The past is history,
only one thing to do
is Lord to keep on . . .
pressing into You!

~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:13

Brethren, I count not myself
to have apprehended: but this
one thing I do, forgetting
those things which are behind,
and reaching forth unto those
things which are before

Faith Stretching ~

faith-streching-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Lord, today . . .
I’ll be exercising
for my faith can use
some real stretching.

I’ll be doing,
some strength training
so towards the mark
I can keep straining.

My perseverance,
seems a little wobbly
so I’ll be working on
a more trusting strategy.

I’ll need to do,
some heavy lifting
so my Bible I’ll pick up
to keep me from drifting.

My endurance,
I will be addressing
so into the goal . . .
I can keep on pressing.

Lord, today . . .
my faith I’m exercising
and I need Your Spirit
to do the energizing!

Philippians 3:14

“I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

New Beginnings ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ New Birth IBible Verses

A fresh start,
new beginnings too
not just for today . . .
but, all year through.

If you let Jesus,
be your resolution
He will bring to you
a glorious restoration.

Putting behind the past,
pressing into the goal
believing in God with . . .
your whole heart and soul.

Letting Him change you,
from the inside out . . .
pushing back your fears
giving Him your doubt.

A fresh new start,
is waiting for you . . .
oh, the mighty things
Jesus wants to do!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 51:10

“Create in me a clean heart,
O God; and renew a right spirit within me.”

I’ts A Daily Thing ~

Look to The Cross Creation Swap CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s a daily thing,
this taking up my cross
it’s about eternal gain
not worldly loss.

It’s an hourly thing,
this denying the self
it’s all about Jesus
not about myself.

It’s a moment thing,
this faithful following
it’s about pressing on
not fearful wallowing.

It’s a minute at a time,
this dying to myself thing
but, Oh what joy . . .
each day that it brings!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 9:23
King James Version

“And he said to them all,
If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself,
and take up his cross daily,
and follow me.”

Pressing Into The Goal ~

Track-Running-Race_Sven-Hoppe_i1 from common photo archive

It’s not about a contest,
it’s about the one you enter in
for the race that’s before you
can be full of good or full of sin.

It’s not about how fast you are,
it’s about your direction
and if to the Gospel of grace
you will make a connection.

It’s not about the time you run,
it’s about pressing into the goal
and if you follow after Jesus
with all your heart and soul.

It’s not about the finish line,
it’s about how close you come
to the mark of a higher calling
and the glory of God’s kingdom.

It’s not about the winning,
it’s about your defeat and loss
and if you gained true knowledge
of why Christ died on the cross!

~~~~~~~~

Philippians 3:7
King James Version

“But what things were gain to me,
those I counted loss for Christ.”
