The goal is set

Now it’s just a matter of getting to the finish line

It’s a matter of staying focused

While running the course of reaching that goal

But challenges and obstacles get in the way

 

May not have the resources to even enter the race

But God can provide a sponsorship

Matthew 7:7 says ask and it shall be given you

Once you’ve entered the race

You may not have cheerleaders on the sidelines

But stay the course because

…they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint (Isaiah 40:31)

 

It’s not so much competing against others

And having something that they don’t

It’s a matter of reaching your own goal

During the course

The race may be more strenuous than thought

The miles seem longer

The pavement seems harder

But stay focused

Proverbs 4:25 says let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee

Look straight ahead, don’t think about past failures

Galatians 6:9 says And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not

 

Because When You get tired God will give you a burst of energy

When You wanna quit, He’ll give you the motivation to keep going

If something gets in your path, He’ll remove it

He’ll help you stay laser focused on the finish line

And at the end you can say I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith ( 2 Timothy 4:7).
