If you are willing to drink from the cup of this world,
Be willing to drink of its pain.
Those who live outside of Christ have much to give,
But their gift is not your gain.

If you are willing to work and strive on your own,
Be willing to live with second best.
For without His power pushing you through,
Your mind will never rest.

If you are willing to be all He created you for,
Be willing to open your heart.
He will fill it up with loving-kindness and truth,
And then your real life can start.

If you are willing to learn and live by His word,
Be willing to never look back.
For when we choose to trust in Him,
Our lives will never lack.

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit. Psalm 51:12
(NASB)

Be willing to live with second best.
For without His power pushing you through,

Those lines really struck me as the core of what we need to do. Sometimes we may be only second best and we need God's power to continue for in His eyes, there is no second best, just "his best"
