The Race

It’s not whether you win or lose
It’s about the choices you chose
It’s about how you play the game
It doesn’t matter about the fame
Only one can win in the race
And it’s only by God’s grace
It’s about our actions
Do they cause infractions
God gives surplus
To those with purpose
It’s not about the end
It’s about how we spend
Our time with each other
We need to support our brother
Despite their gain
No matter our pain
God is in control
Whom we should extol
We need to do what’s right
In our Lord’s sight
You will go against the grain
But in Him, you will remain
Don’t let the locus
Distract your focus
In Him stay steady and true
For He will see you through
Through thick and thin
You will win
No matter your place
In the final race
It’s all about how you run
And what you’ve done
That makes you a winner
And not a sinner
So Lord, steady our pace
And may Your abounding grace
Steady our feet
And keep us from defeat
If You could just
Increase our thrust
And give us the scoop
Keeping us in the hoop
We thank You
For all You do.
