Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

A Race I Cannot Win

Sometimes we find ourselves running from something that we can’t escape and running a race that we can’t win. But through the running we find the One who can give us strength to free us from what chases us.

A Race I Cannot Win

I run from what I can’t escape,
I flee from dreams as fast as light;
I’m in a race I cannot win
But God keeps calling me to fight—

I’ve given in, I can’t go on,
A sense of hopelessness has come,
But still the Spirit pushes me
To drop my fearfulness and run…

Then with a final effort
I give it all, and sprinting hard
I fall across the finish line
Into my Father’s arms…
