Pep-talk From The Coach

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Come on…you can do it!
Push on, through the pain.
The prize is just ahead of you,
With blessings to be gained.
I know it can be hard.
But I know your heart, too.
Remember, I’m the very One
Who made and strengthens you.
So focus on My voice.
Don’t give in to defeat.
You’re almost to the goal-line;
Your race nearly complete.
And when you hear, “Well done!”
As to your knees you fall,
If you have done your best, for Me,
It will be worth it all!
“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God
has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:13b-14 NIV
