This is an inspirational poem I wrote about winning at life. Its about enduring great challenges in life. I pray every day that God blesses me with strength to endure my trials and life challenges.
Win This Race
God please bless me with the strength
to endure this never ending race,
O Lord when things aren’t going well,
I want to keep a smile and continue seeking Your face.
Lord, I very weak and need help to make it to the finish-line,
O Lord please comfort my body, soul, and mind.
O Lord, my goal is to get there, but it’s a long way to the finish,
Even if Satan gets in my way You will not allow my hard work be diminished.
I won’t stop running until I see that ole familiar sign,
but Lord it’s a long, long way to my destination, which is the finish line.
Nothing will stop me even if I have to run with bare feet,
O Lord, I’m willing to sacrifice everything not to suffer the agony of defeat.
My body and mind is tired from stress and strain,
but I’m determined to make it there despite my mental anguish and pain…
O Lord Victory is so close, but it’s so far, far away,
If I keep running hard, I will make there (soon) one day!
