Running the Race – G-d’s Choice

I am joining with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Finish

To choose to begin to run the race,
to follow hard,
to let G-d in and let sin out
What a phenomenal choice
What a beautiful gift
For in all reality, I didn’t choose Him,
Rather, He chose me

He chose me

Let it sink in

The G-d of all creation,
The G-d of the universe,
The G-d of Israel,
The one G-d,
Chose, me!

This is my reason,
my motivation,
my great hope

He is my reason,
my motivation,
my great hope

I choose You back, G-d
I love You so
You are my all and there is no other
There will never be another like You
You began this work
Thank you
You will finish this work
Thank You

There is no other G-d like You
You stand alone
You stand with me in faithfulness when I am weak and misguided
You stand with Israel when she is broken and difficult
You are faithful and there is no other

I thank You that in You and through You and by You
I have been able to run this race
I thank You that in You and through You and by You
I will be able to finish this race
