“ The Game of Life “
Life-----It’s not about the wins and losses
Nor struggles along the way.
It’s Christ living in you,
It’s how the game is played.
It’s about my relationship with Him, in the end.
He’s my All, my Everything, my Teacher, my Friend,
He’s my Savior, my Father, and mostly my Coach.
He guides me, protects me, and must not be reproached.
He draws me closer and closer, gently leading
Teaching and directing me how to play,
He gives me the play book each and everyday,
If, I simply, get down on my knees and pray.
It’s how we respond to life’s ebbs and flows,
It’s how others witness our ultimate lows.
We must remember; spectators are watching the game,
When it’s all over, “will we have struggled for fame?”
The question I’ll ask,
“Will they see, Jesus in us?”
“Will they want to know more and learn to trust?”
“Will others see a difference in how we played the game?”
Will we give God the Glory and All the Fame?”
I’ve learned far more from losses,
Than from any win attained.
It’s during the crossroads, dead-ends, and pitfalls
where everything is gained.
Character is built. Integrity is earned.
Nothing could replace all that I’ve learned.
Put me in Coach, I’m ready to play,
All by the rules, of Your Book today.
