Stamina

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7

Boxers train to go all 12 rounds. Sprinters train for power, strength and speed.

Lord, let me not forget that I am in a fight, in a race, and it’s my faith in You that will get me through. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Fighting, Running, Faith-ing

Oh Lord let my fight
not be about who’s right

and let my race
be soaked in grace

as I keep my faith
fully based

on the only One who
will see me through.

 

 

Thoroughly Equipped

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, to correction, for instruction in righteousness,

that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”  2 Timothy 3:16-17

 

The image of a Swiss Army knife comes to mind. 🙂

Lord, thank You for Your Word that equips us for anything  and everything.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Ready

All scripture is for us
to teach and correct

guiding our thoughts
helping our progress

towards being completely
and thoroughly prepared

for doing His good
any time, any where.

Grace Strength

“You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”  2 Timothy 2:1

We can lift weights to get strong.

Lord, help me lay aside the weight of my pride and self-righteousness so that I can be strong in the ways You desire me to be.   And here’s a simple poem . . .

Heavily Coated

source – blogs.longwood.edu

It flies in the face
of our flesh, this thing
called grace

taking away the sting
of us living as
human beings

coating us so heavily
undeservedly, unexpectedly
that we stagger

under the freedom
of learning to walk
bowed down.

Of Power And Love

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  2 Timothy 1:7

God gives us so much.

Lord,  thank You for supplying us with exactly what we’ll need today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Sound

I give you My Spirit
of power and love

and a sound mind
to think clearly from

making sure you have everything
you need for this day

to meet the challenges
that come your way.
