The Race I Entered ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

When the race I entered,
I didn’t know the distance
nor that there would be
so much resistance.

I didn’t think how far,
I would be running
nor how satan after me
would still be coming.

I didn’t think how much,
courage it would take
as I kept aiming
for the narrow gate.

I didn’t think how few,
had the faith to hold fast
nor how many of them
I could actually outlast.

When I entered the race,
I didn’t know it was so long
and it’s only because of Jesus
that I’ve kept going strong!


1 Corinthians 9:24

Know ye not that they which
run in a race run all,
but one receiveth the prize?
So run, that ye may obtain.
