Poem: Roller Jamming For God

On Sep 25, 2018 03:01 PM EDT


There was a time when roller derby was big;

The Warriors, T-Birds, Devils, Bombers, and others too.

The skaters were stars, and possibly the greatest star of all

Was pretty Judy Arnold, till she saw things anew.


She used to focus on scoring points

By skating pass opponents in her way.

And by blocking other skaters from passing her,

She helped her team to win each day.


But something changed in her competing heart

As she looked at her life and saw

That she was being called for a purpose so great;

A new path that would lead to something much more.


She left the banked track to attend Bible school.

She became a Warrior for God's team.

Jamming now to win souls for salvation and joy,

Judy's fulfilling her glorious dream.
