Treasure Island

Endurance


Our Life is woven with Adversity
And the race is really a marathon,
Endurance requires persistence
And only the tough keep running on.

What challenge is there in passivity?
Empty of excitement and victory-
I would rather run battles, scarred to see
I'm over my mountains and I've crossed my seas.

So rather than sit in the bench and watch
I move on with hope and determination
My dreams and hopes are all mine to catch
Each step getting closer to my aspirations.

Leveled mountains, parted seas
When turmoil comes, there is a way
The troubles then may not all cease,
But God gives strength for everyday.





--
'For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future'.... JEREMIAH 29: 11

That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
