Don’t shoot for the stars

By Joseph Thompson:


Don’t shoot for the stars

Just lay back and wonder at their light

Don’t chase your dreams

You’ll find them as you sleep tonight


Don’t strive for greatness

Greatness is reserved for God

Don’t seek the spotlight

Just enjoy the show and applaud


Don’t be the best you can be

But be the best of another’s worst

Don’t never give up

But surrender your wounds to be nursed


For the battle is not to the strong

Nor the race to the swift

So delight in life’s true cause:

Spread the news of God’s good gift
