Competition

[Verse 1] I give You glory

For all You’ve brought me through

And now I’m ready

For whatever You wanna do

[Verse 2] I’m moving forward

To follow after You

And now I’m ready

For whatever You wanna do

(Elevation Worship) – Won’t Stop Now

Mark 10

The Little Children and Jesus

13 People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them.

14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

16 And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.


 

Competition

beating you

See what I

was born to do

look around

see the best

put my heart

to the test

want to win

want to achieve

want the best

want to succeed

this is how

I was made

from my first breath

passion gave

me the strength

to surpass

when fight was all

I had to last

in a race

set to lose

I had a choice

what did I choose?

 

rage inside

got me through

screaming loud

not. me. too.

 

.

 

passion fueled

greed, it thrived

knocking down pillars

no love inside

choice was all

I had, control

clinging to

my only role

dictate this

fight with that

adrenaline rush

my caveat

 

when sweet trust

was wiped away

when I had

no power to say

I’m not safe

please keep me

away in fear

leave me be.

 

empty hole

clawing towards

bloody fingers

stagnent chords

screams inside

love deprived

why me too

still alive

feeling dead

where I stood

darkness thrived

pain understood

 

pages turn

writers block

nothing moving

ticking clock

 

knew the answer

deep inside

can’t keep running

I couldn’t hide

 

went to the water

felt Him there

whisper softly

silent prayer

 

help.

 

I am here.

was all he said

tiny light

sparked the dread

started burning

up the pain

gentle healing

lightest rain

washed away

what was done

this is comfort

Little one,

you are safe

I’m right here.

wipe away

that burning tear

stand up tall

fight for me

make a choice

let her be

 

I’ve got her

she is safe

now my child

run this race

 

Healthy Competition

look to me

be a champion

all for me

 

raise those kids

a different way

gentle, humble

always pray

live a life

full opposite

promising future

see what you get

yes, you’ll stumble

yes, you’ll fall

I’ll always catch you

when you call

yes, the road

will be hard

you will fight

be battle scarred

you are my warrior

look at your past

you got through

you will last

I designed you

to always succeed

write your story

for others to read

 

yet, my testimony

fully wrote

is jumbled up

stuck in my throat

every day

more healing inside

every moment

comfort abides

within my Savior

safe and true

I’ll live always

focused on you.
