Are you willing to "Go the Distance"?

The scene right before Hercules' "Go the Distance" and the song itself directly correlates to our journey back to God. Zeus told Hercules exactly what he needed to do to have the ability to live in his presence among the other gods and goddesses on Mount Olympus. Likewise, Heavenly Father has laid out every step for us to return to Him and live in His presence again someday. If you're willing to go the distance, you will find your hero's welcome waiting in His arms.

"I have often dreamed, of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome, would be waiting for me
Where the crowds will cheer, when they see my face
And a voice keeps saying, this is where I'm meant to be

I'll be there someday, I can go the distance
I will find my way, if I can be strong
I know ev'ry mile, will be worth my while
When I go the distance, I'll be right where I belong

Down an unknown road, to embrace my fate
Though that road may wander, it will lead me to you
And a thousand years, would be worth the wait
It might take a lifetime, but somehow I'll see it through

And I won't look back, I can go the distance
And I'll stay on track, no, I won't accept defeat
It's an uphill slope, but I won't lose hope
Till I go the distance, and my journey is complete

But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
For a hero's strength is measured by his heart

Like a shooting star, I will go the distance
I will search the world, I will face its' harms
I don't care how far, I can go the distance
Till I find my hero's welcome, waiting in your arms

I will search the world, I will face its harms
Till I find my hero's welcome, waiting in your arms"
