What does it take to reach your soul’s greatest dream?
ALL OF YOU and nothing less.
All of your weaknesses laid bare.
All your hopes tested and tried,
Until everything is made clear.
It takes ALL of you.
Forged by trials,
To remove the unnecessary,
To strip yourself of childish ambitions,
To learn from numerous mistakes,
And grow from bruises and wounds.
Until the dream becomes you.
What does it take to reach your dream?
All of your fears,
All of your longings and frustrations,
All of your songs and sighs
Of Yesterday and Tomorrow.
You have to build on every struggle,
Strengthen yourself in adversity,
Never give in to mediocrity.
Always see within you,
And look ahead of you.
DREAM all that you can dream,
And remember that it will take
ALL that is WITHIN YOU.
“There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next…”
