Stay Strong by the Newsboys

You’re in the moment now
A bitter rouse
A wandering eye and then
The ties that bind start wearing thin, within

You’re in the moment now
When all that you’ve been blessed with
Is not enough
Here’s where the ground gets loose
Here’s where the devils call your bluff

Stay strong
You are not lost
Come on and fix your eyes ahead
There’s a new dawn to light our day, our day
You’ve gotta stay strong
You and I run
For the prize that lies ahead
We’ve come too far to lose our way, our way

We’ve seen the tragic flaws
The tortured souls
The saints with feet of clay
Here’s where sin becomes cliche’

We’ve come through wilderness and watched
The cloud by day
The burning sky into dawn
Have you forgotten who you are?
Did you forget whose trip you’re on?

Stay strong
You are not lost
Come on and fix your eyes ahead
There’s a new dawn to light our day, our day
We’ve gotta stay strong
You and I run
For the prize that lies ahead
We’ve come too far to lose our way, our way

Get up, there’s further to go
Get up, there’s more to be done
Get up, this witness is sure
Get up, this race can be won
This race can be won

We’ve gotta stay strong
You are not lost
Come on and fix your eyes ahead
Our Father’s dawn will light our day, our day
Come on and stay strong
His grip is sure
And His patience still endures
There’ll be no letting go today, no way

Come on, and stay strong
You and I run
For the prize that lies ahead
We’ve come too far to lose our way, our way

Do you feel as if you have no more strength to carry on? Do you feel like you have done as much as you can?

God’s work here on earth is not complete until everyone believes in Him and follows Him faithfully. Only then is His work complete. As followers of Christ that means our work is not complete until our time on earth is over, or everyone believes and follows God.

The “prize” at the end of our life (our “race”), is eternal life with God, in heaven. Don’t think you can’t complete your “race”, because in God’s strength we can find the strength to carry on and focus on our “prize”. So stay strong in the knowledge that God will give you the strength to face all things.
