Wednesday Riff: Marathon

Long obedience in the same direction.

Keeping going,

In it for the long haul,

A marathon rather than a sprint.

Though some days we may feel

As if we’ve fallen off the track,

Or meandered off course entirely,

While for others the race may often feel

More like the rush and flurry of a dash…

The race goes on.

So keep running,

Setting your eyes on the prize,

On the goal,

On Jesus,

The author, founder, nourisher

Of our faith and hope,

And the one who is

Our strength and courage

For running

This marathon.

If you've appreciated this, why not...
