Staying The Course

Lord, this hasn’t been easy,
but, I’m staying the course
only because You’ve been . . .
my strength’s sole source.

You’ve never let me down,
for me You’re always there
ready to take upon Yourself
the weight of all my care.

Lord, You’ve been with me,
throughout the race so far
compelling me to endure
so I can be where You are.

You’ve given me patience,
when mine was running low
helping me to keep the faith
so that Your joy I may know.

Lord, You got me started,
in this race I am in . . .
and when I finish it
I’ll have victory over sin!

~~~~~~~~

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.

Staying Loyal ~

I am standing fast,
staying to Jesus loyal
right to the finish line
I will remain hopeful.

Though all around me,
people are falling away
from my faith in Him
I’ll not be led astray.

I am holding fast,
staying to Jesus faithful
up to my dying breath
I will remain trustful.

Though the world is,
more evil every day
I’ll stay to the course
of the Life, Truth and Way.

I am standing firm,
I will not be shameful
for my salvation . . .
I will remain grateful!

~~~~~~~~

Jude 1.24

Now unto him that is able to keep
you from falling, and to present you
faultless before the presence of
his glory with exceeding joy,

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.

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!
