Tenacity Gets Ten Out Of Ten!
When I consider life itself,
And study books upon my shelf,
And take the best of all advice,
I pause in wonder and think twice.
Thank God for times when I have grown,
And love that God Himself has shown,
With prayers for blessings, waiting still,
According to His sovereign will.
Tenacity abides within,
And grants to me a hearty grin,
To think of all things I achieved,
When the Gospel I received.
Eternal life. Forgiveness, too.
A brand new life with lots to do,
Though some may see an idle soul,
I was quite busy on the whole.
Tenacity, my constant guide,
To all the love I hold inside,
Though I grow weary with the years,
I face my setbacks and my tears.
Folks can't keep track of all I write,
The poems typed out day and night,
The little sermons now and then,
So others, too, get born again.
I do what's right and not just wise,
Supporting charity supplies,
That help this world where pain persists,
Just as God's evangelists.
Tenacity, that's grace enough,
So I may serve the King of Love.
As long as there's still breath in me,
You'll also find tenacity!
