Go the Distance

Try and try again
But most of all
Give praise to God
For breaking the fall.

Be committed
To finishing the race
And receiving the crown
Because of grace.

Like a great inventor
Failing time after time,
Keep working ideas,
Continuing the climb.

Free up the past
And receive the booster
To the fast track
Of a brighter future.

Giving new energy
To help step ahead
In sharing the message
So it becomes widespread.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    This poem is inspired by 2 Timothy 1 – 2 from the Bible. Paul endures because of his desire to get the message out about Christ and do all the good he could. This day with God, let us have this same desire to go the extra mile and help get the work done.
