Going from Here to There

I am in love with an ideal. An ideal that seems to be out of reach. How do I get to this ideal? One step at a time, right?
I am smitten by righteousness. A righteousness that shuts me out. How do I make peace with righteousness? One prayer at a time.
I am lost without support. Support that would bring me peace. How do I get this support?
How do I...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you—the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
~Psalm 121
