Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Philippians 3:12 NIV

It’s a journey of a lifetime

That’s how long it will take

Striving toward the goal

Reaching upward for heaven’s sake


God first grabbed a hold of me

I was heading in the wrong direction

I wanted nothing to do with Him

Then His love changed my affection


On my behalf, He sacrificed His life

A beautiful action has captured me

Fills my heart with gratitude

A knowledge as grand as can be


I understand what I should do

Now I know which way to go

I’m on mission with Jesus

His love, help people to know


Consume me God, I’m yours

By Your blood, I’m bought

Fastened to Your purpose

Captivated by this thought


I’m grabbing and holding onto God

His power within is the key

The end is wrapped in the journey

I’m pressing on, through eternity

Blessings, Love y’all
