The Race of a Lifetime ~

Great poem!   The NLT version of Hebrews 12:1 reads: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress.

Thanks for sharing Deborah.   I’ll meet you at the Finish Line! Greg

after our souls, he is gunning
we must be sure from him
to always keep on running.

We need to stay focused,
on the goal that is ahead
we must be sober and alert
so we can be Spirit lead.

It’s a race of endurance,
not one of swiftness or speed
we must depend on God . . .
for the stamina that we need!
