I have come through the toughest marathon of my life,
A marathon where distance is immeasurable,
Where time is boundless and can be measured by faith,
Patience and perseverance.
Where my quest is not to win
But able to accomplish the race that God has set before me
With boldness and confidence
And enjoyment along the journey,
Making every step a blissful adventure...
Where my ultimate goal is to take the risk that has within it,
To sustain from resilience, to endure through pain,
And endure all things with passion and enthusiasm
For the greater glory of God
Taking every step in joyful obedience
Until the waning years of my life...
Where my commitment is to grow strong...
Leaving my footprints behind, pressing forward
On each stride to the finish line
Towards the upward calling of God in Christ Jesus
Marking the memories with the fulfillment to love like Christ.
Where in the end I could say… the One is worth waiting for.
