when having to decide why we race.
To what is the end goal,
How much are we willing to pay for the toll.
If it is really so much worth,
Are you willing to brave the dearth?
Do you take the steps needed to gain,
that one thing calling out your name?
Do you have the courage to try,
even though you may trip and on your face lie?
Can you stand and show
the path you have decided to go?
Make the choice,
Give to your faith your voice.
That alone is not enough,
you have to now act, though it might be tough.
Do the steps necessary,
to wade through each tributary.
When you find something you are willing to pay for,
Don't hesitate, especially if it gets you out the door.
One step, one foot in front of the other,
Then your motivation they can't smother.
As you find the joy in your choice,
aid others to see it, guide them with your voice.
The walk you don't take alone,
At the end, you are guided to a throne.
Peace and rest you can receive,
if on One you can always believe.
He awaits you to let Him in,
To help alleviate you of sin.
He administers to all relief,
to ease the burden of our grief.
Sing a song of praise and joy,
To One who came as a simple boy.
All things he has suffered for you and me,
So that we, too, might live with Him and be free.
