I took a step forward today
Passing only one of the two I declined yesterday
The days past has been this way
So I wonder if I progress.
The journey I begun not long ago
Took me not long to fall short
And wonder if I am worth this path
I look at those along the way
Many seem to show decay
Falling off the path they swayed
But I took a step forward today
So made progress from yesterday
My focus should be what lays ahead
But the cares and wants make it hard
These eyes that should be fixed on the prize
Are lured by pleasures that contend the way
However, I took a step forward today.
So far I had run with zeal
Not one that came from grace
But with self-strength
As though I run a physical race.
I realized today my flaw
And spent time on my knees
That when I rise not I Lord but your Spirit
And so I made progress today
A new wind blows
Bringing in a renewed man
The shortfalls of yesterday
That saw retrogression, now lay behind.
There is grace for the race and I believe
I make progress, From today
Till the prize is won
God bless you
