I laugh and think that I am not the person I professed to be.
Professional athlete is the term that poured right out of me.
But now on reconsidering and thinking of my ‘says,’
I am exactly what I said. I wasn’t in a daze;
For I am running steadily; although on bended knee.
I am exactly what I said, for I am Christ’s, set free.
Toward the goal I sprint and stride and step at quite a pace.
I run as one set to fully complete and win the Godly race.
Oh, yes I am an athlete, the best that I can be.
Professional athlete chasing prize to Christ. Oh yes, indeed! That’s me
Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but [only] one receives the prize? So run [your race] that you may lay hold [of the prize] and make it yours. (From 1 Corinthians 9:24, AMP)
That is you too! Congratulations!
Prayer – Lord, give us willing hearts and flashing feet. For Christ. Amen
