The Cost of Endurance
by Deborah Ann Belka
3/10/2012 / Poetry
The Bible says to run the race,
with endurance in our steps
to jump over the tricky obstacles
and to pass up the risky objects.
This race is not an easy one,
there's a cost for everyday enduring
most of us can't stay the course
because sin can be so ~ alluring.
But, we are called to this race,
to be patient and persistent
and in our daily run with faith
we must be ~ pressure resistant.
Before we step onto the track,
we must warm-up our endurance
then work-out all the resistance
so we'll run with God's assurance.
There will be many a roadblock,
that each day we'll face head on
but if we trust in God's power
He'll strengthen us till their gone.
In this race, we'll have to give up,
the things that bring us pleasure
but when we set them aside
we'll add to our eternal treasure.
This race is long and hard,
no one said it was trouble-free
so let's keep our eyes on the goal
and run the race with joy and glee!
"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."
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! Click here and TRUST JESUS NOW
