Strength for the Race
God gives us the strength to run life's race,
And the stamina needed to keep the pace;
He uses the circumstances we go through
To condition us for what He calls us to do.
He strengthens our hearts, souls and minds,
And lifts sin's weight that so easily binds,
That we might run with honor and grace
Through those difficult obstacles we face.
As we run, He is with us along the way,
Refreshing, and supplying our need each day;
If we focus on Him and never look back,
We'll always be running on the right track.
Across the line - is a crown to be received,
For all we've accomplished and achieved;
We'll accept it gladly when the race is complete,
To lay at our wonderful Trainer's feet.
Praise God! With Christ as our Coach Divine,
We don't have to wait for the finish line;
Hallelujah! The victory already is won,
We can rejoice right now as the race is run.
Father, we thank Thee for Thy saving grace
That imparts to us - Strength for the Race.
"The Lord will give strength unto his people..."
"...let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith..."
