The Race of a Lifetime

There is no starting pistol…no ready, get set…go…

Just saved souls who are willing to be led where God will show.

God’s Mercy is the agent that calls us to the race.

The bumps along the course are smoothed by God’s amazing Grace.

And though sometimes we can not see the road before our eyes,

We fervently press onward toward the everlasting prize.

The prize, a higher calling, despite our fears and strife,

To find the unique purpose God intends for each one’s life,

To know that He is with us when earthly foes assail,

Against His love the very gates of Hell will not prevail.

And though sometimes we stumble and we fall into a heap,

To stay and never leave us is a promise He will keep.

We’ll soar on wings like eagles if we focus on God’s Son,

He’ll meet us at the finish line when our life’s race is done.

With arms held wide, He’ll welcome us with words we love the best,

Well done, my faithful servants, it is time to take a rest.

Yes, well done, Lisa . . . you are a faithful servant, though for you, there is no rest; not when evidently led by Christ, to continue writing, on His behest. Bryan.

Won't it be great to see the Father after our race. Yes, what a great promise that He will never leave us.
