Spiritual Focusing

I have not yet reached my goal,
Nor have I finished the course;
But I focus on my soul,
While His love does endorse.

I know I can run to win,
Just as Jesus Christ has won;
And not be enticed by sin,
As I abide in the Son.

Like you I am a sinner,
Because of things that I do;
But I can be a winner,
As long as I follow through.

So if I do not look back,
And just go lengthen my stride;
I persevere what I lack,
To remember to abide.

Then I run straight towards the goal,
So I can go win the prize;
With salvation for my soul,
And see Jesus with my eyes.

For I do not wish to fall,
Not within this point of time;
But get the heavenly call,
And forgiveness of my crime.

So my focus for today,
In keeping my faith mature;
While I keep thinking this way,
And be spiritually pure.
