Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us runwith perseverance the race marked out for us.

The hpye of the Olympics brought back to mind this poem I wrote years ago.

Gold Medal

They give their all to win the gold
No matter what the cost
Their chance is slim so few can win
Yet they still pay the cost
And when they’ve won they’re glory’s sung
They find it ever brief
For though they did the best that time
There’s someone right behind.

I’m in a race to win the gold
That also has a cost
My chance is great for Christ did win
He paid the greatest cost
When I have won,
God’s glory’s sung
It will not end with time
But do I give my best for Him
Or do I lag behind?

My God, help me desire You
More than they long to win
Help me keep the laws You’ve made
To keep me safe from sin.
Help me keep my eyes on You
So my goal I can win
And when I win they’ll be no end
You will have brought me in.
