I press on

I press on

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14 – (New American Standard Bible)

When my strength is seeping faster than I can walk

When it does not make sense to try anymore

When logic says it is OK to let it go

When no one is  watching or , when no one notices or even cares

When the only eyes on me are Yours

When friends give their green light for me to go ahead and throw in the towel

When no one else knows the details of the story apart from You and myself

When doing the right thing will only rock the boat more fiercely

When my opponents make offers and are calling for a truce

When it is just easier to take the money and run

When fighting for the truth only makes things worse

Lord, help me not to give in. let me find strength in You because You are a strong tower and You can be trusted. Help me to press on.
