HE LIFTS US UP: “Life is Like An Obstacle Course”

“Life is like an obstacle course”…
are my words for today.
For the many struggles in life…
are how we are prepared this way.
‘Cause just like a soldier…
training for a battle or war…
they go through obstacle courses…
for mental and physical strengthening before.
They crawl on the ground…
through mud and dangerous places.
And they climb tall walls…
and run long hard races.
Then with each portion of the course…
that they successfully overcome.
They are strengthened and prepared…
for the next challenges to come.
And as we go through life…
with all struggles of the human race…
we grow in strength and stamina…
with each obstacle that we face.
We trudge through the mud…
and the dirt in our lives.
We struggle with the heartbreak…
of abusive husbands or wives.
Many take abuse at home or school…
or in the workplace too.
Where the meek and mild are attacked…
as man tries to break each of you.
But each obstacle we face…
will give us strength as we prevail.
As we struggle through this world…
and we will no longer be so frail.
For God’s plan is to strengthen and use us…
as we call on Him each day.
He will lift us from the pit…
and out of the mud and miry clay.
And though we walk through the valley…
with darkness and pain around…
He will walk there beside us…
with His comfort and Love abound.
For on the “obstacle course of life”…
He will never leave you and me…
He just wants us to trust Him…
for to overcome, He is the Key!

Psalm 40:2
“He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.”

Psalm 23
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.”

“You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.”

Father God, we thank You for being with us and giving us the strength to overcome every obstacle in our path. That we can do all things through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Who strengthens us. That through all of our struggles, You teach us and guide us so that You can use us to help others. We praise You Lord for helping us through the obstacle course of life and raising us up to new levels of faith with You… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
