Press Toward the Mark or De En Ob De Race

Here's a good word that Sister Cheryl gave me today:

Philippians 3:12-14

As Paul said, “Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

And here's that same message in the beloved Gullah language:

A ain say A done do all wa God wahn me fa do, an A ain say A done come fa be all wa A oughta be een God eye. Bot A da try wid all me haat fa mek dat prize me own, cause Jedus Christ done mek me e own. Me Christian bredren, fa sho, A ain yet win dat prize. A ain all wa A oughta be een God eye. Bot one ting A da do. A da do all dat A able fa do fa git ta wa dey head ob me. A ain pay no mind ta nottin dat done pass. A da try wid all me haat fa git ta de end ob de race, so dat A kin git de prize, fa lib een heaben weh Jedus Christ da call me fa lib wid um.

God Bless You Cheryl!
