Philippians 3:12
The Process

12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.

God started a work on me a long time ago
Actually it began when I was first conscious of sin
I must confess, very little did I know
When the striving of the Holy Spirit began
But God is God, and when He continues to move
In many ways to bring me to Him
Before long I was awakened and moved by His love
To start on this journey to heaven

It was like there was a starting line when I began to run
A race that will cover many miles
It is not a competition but a course different for everyone
Uphill and down, rough and smooth, tears and smiles
According to how God chooses to design
The course that is set before me
Is the speed that I travel at a speed that is mine
Producing what He has foreordained to be.

I am still on the run, not trying to escape
From the road that stretches out in the distance
But in many ways enjoying the way that I take
It is a privilege to be involved in God’s business
I don’t know how many more twists and turns
Lie ahead now that I’m on the home stretch
Each day there are experiences and things I learn
And I have to stop longer my breath to catch.

Sometimes I think I catch a glimpse
Of the goal line not too far up ahead
But when I get there it is only a twist
To make the way interesting and get me out of bed
So by God’s grace and power I’ll keep on the run
He’s made the course to suit me each day
When the goal is reached – the earthly race is done
I’ll praise Him for each step of the way.

“Father God, this is a new day and the tasks before me seem to be simple. I will take time to think and meditate as I do them. Give me some thoughts that will help me be a good worshiper – and a good intercessor. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
