Lord, Help Us to Run ~

Lord, help us to run,
this race we are in
help us to finish well
so the prize we can win.

Give us the stamina.
the patience for endurance
give us the spiritual muscle
to keep going the distance.

Lord, help us to run,
right past temptation
help us to keep our eyes
on our true destination.

Give us strength,
keep us fit and strong
so we’ll not be dismayed
when things go wrong.

Lord, help us to run,
so that we may win . . .
this race before us
over evil and sin!

So run, that ye may obtain.

Finishing Well ~

Whatever you begin,
finish it well . . .
let the power of God
rise in you and swell.

Be faithful all the way,
as you run the race
hold on to the hope
of the Gospel of grace.

Whatever you start,
finish it well . . .
let the Holy Spirit
your fears quell.

Trust and believe,
Jesus is your strength
to go the distance
no matter the length.

Whatever you do,
finish it joyfully . . .
so you may complete
the course triumphantly!
~~~~~~~~

Acts 20:24

But none of these things move me,
neither count I my life dear
unto myself, so that I might
finish my course with joy,
and the ministry, which I have
received of the Lord Jesus,
to testify the gospel of
the grace of God.

You Can Do It ~

You can be an endurer,
you can persist
if to the world’s wicked ways
you will resist.

You can be an overcomer,
you can prevail
if you don’t let satan’s arrows
your faith impale.

You can be an achiever,
you can win
if you run away from
all forms of sin.

You can be an opposer,
you can contend
if you don’t conform
or be the world’s friend.

You can do it,
you can win the race . . .
just keep looking to Jesus
for assurance and grace!

Hebrews 12:1-2

“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,

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher
of our faith; who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross, despising
the shame, and is set down at the right
hand of the throne of God.”

A Marathon To Run ~

I have entered,
a marathon
and my eyes
are set upon . . .

To run with grace,
and perseverance
to not let sin
be an interference.

To go for the goal,
to push, to strain
so my reward
I’ll be able to gain.

To be faithful,
to the very end
to with this world
not be its friend.

To stay the course,
to claw, to fight
to win the battle
with God’s might.

To be peculiar,
to finish well
lest for eternity
I’ll spend in hell.

 I’ve entered a marathon,
I am racing toward . . .
the day I will meet Jesus
my Savior and Lord!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:1-2

“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,

Looking unto Jesus the author
and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set
before him endured the cross,
despising the shame,
and is set down at the
right hand of the throne of God.

It’s Hard Work ~

Lord, its not easy
following after You
it’s hard work
staying to You true.

It’s not easy,
giving up my pride
it’s hard work
in You to abide.

Lord, it’s not easy,
staying on the narrow way
it’s hard work
bearing my cross everyday.

It’s not easy.
being patient in the race
it’s hard work
relying on Your grace.

Lord, it’s not easy,
staying to You committed
it’s hard work
keeping my life submitted.

But, I know it will be,
all worth it in the end
so from You I’ll not leave
to become the world’s friend!

I’ve Not The Power ~

In myself,
I haven’t the power
to outrun satan
when he’s out to devour.

So, my spiritual sneakers,
I am putting on . . .
to insure this race
can be victoriously won.

I’ll pull up my laces,
God’s Word will be the knot
so to satan’s snares
off guard, I’ll not be caught.

With my Bible verses,
I’ll plan each of my steps
so I can remain diligent
in following the concepts.

In myself,
I haven’t the power
but, with God’s strength
satan, I will overpower!

1 Peter 5:8

“Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary
the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking
whom he may devour:”

Philippians 3:14

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

Psalm 119:32

I will run the way
of thy commandments,
when thou shalt
enlarge my heart.”

Lose the Weight ~

Lose the Weight ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

To stay in the race,
you must be fit
lest you will tire
and just want to quit.

You’ll need to lose,
transgression’s pounds
lest for sure they’ll
slow you right down.

The weight of the world,
you’ll need to shed
lest it will mess
with your heart and head.

You’ll need to drop,
the sin besetting you
lest it will encumber
the running you do.

To stay in the race,
don’t let sin drag you down
lest you may miss out . . .
on your victor’s crown!

~~~~~~~~~

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,”

I Will Finish Well ~

I Will Finish Well ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m going for the goal,
I will stay on track
I’ll keep to the course
by not looking back.

I’ll strain to the end,
right to the final hour
for I am running on
God’s might and power.

The enemy is chasing,
but I will finish well
for I know he wants
to see me in hell.

I see the finish line,
it is just up ahead
I know I can reach it
cause I am Spirit lead.

I’m hanging in there,
I will win the race
for I’m running on
God’s mercy and grace!

Daily Bread ~

Daily Bread ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Give me today ~ Lord,
Your daily bread
let it be on Your Word
that I am satisfied and fed.

Let me not go hungry,
for the Truth and the Way
fill me with Your wisdom
as I go about my day.

Send to me Your manna,
sweetened with grace
grant unto me strength
to run the good race.

Give me life-giving water,
so I’ll not ever thirst
remind me to always . . .
put You first!

A Conquering Soul ~

A Conquering Soul ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It takes courage,
a spirit willing to go the length
it takes confidence
letting God supply the strength.

It takes commitment,
a determination to do God’s will
it takes patience
a willingness to wait and be still.

It takes persistence,
a resolve to keep pressing on
it takes diligence
for the faithful race to be won.

It takes focus,
eyes always kept on the goal
it takes Jesus
to have a conquering soul!
