You must add tension
To the longbow string
Or the arrow will not shoot
Very Far

Adversity creates the tension needed
For God to propel you
From right where you are

What should take years
God can accelerate
In a fraction
Of the time

So we Praise You, Lord
Through adversity
Knowing you are turning our
Water into wine

Yes, Faith is the accelerant
That ignites the fire
Down deep within
The Believer’s heart

When we allow God’s plan
To be the tension for our arrows
We become a
Shooting star

He can promote
Without education
He can prosper
And it won’t cost a dime

He can heal
And restore so we can
Sew and reap
All at the same time

“For the day is coming
When the plowman overtakes the reaper
And the treader of grapes overtakes
The one who is called the seeder.” (Amos 9:13 (NIV))

So let not your heart be troubled (John 14:1 (NIV))
But… Trust
Let faith accelerate you
To the Finish line

Though not the end
But the place
We’ll abide
When eternity… begins
