- Knowledge of one-self?
- Knowledge of the universe?
- Scientific understanding?
- Perfect logic?
- Emotionally connected to all living things?
But I think we are missing something,
And it is the "unknowable" God,
Who we can never fully understand or explain.
I have a personal relationship with Him,
And He leads me in ways I could never explain on my own.
But more than that, God brings me to places in life
That I would naturally avoid.
Then only when I trust in Him,
And push through the boundries of my comfort zone,
Do I find a greater place of peace and joy.
I cannot tell you the boundaries of His power,
But I can tell you that God loves me, and has not left me alone.
Following His ways may mean turning down some things that appeal to me,
But instead I find it may allow me a Chance of being great- and not merely good.
To do this though, I must understand that my role in life
May be different from what society says I should focus on.
Average says to find the Easy way, not the best.
Average says to look for the quickest ways to accomplish a goal,
And not take our time to find the path that leads to a lasting success.
If you could only find greatness,
By asking someone else to help you every step of the way,
Would you do it?
I have seen the smartest of scientists, philosophers, and psychologists
All seek to explain humanity,
Only to to miss out on their own personal happiness
Because their work drove them to solitude.
Does that make them great? Or just lonely?
The greatest achievements we may ever be able to accomplish,
May come by slowing down, and working on the smaller parts of life first.
Then finding success when we have learned patience,
And the power to rely on someone greater than ourselves
To provide the inspiration we truly seek.
What could you give-up now,
To reach a more worthy goal ten-years from now?
