  • TAKE CARE OF IT; THAT, IN THEPROCESS, GOD'S FAITHFUL TO
  • 00:22:49.991 --> 00:22:51.059
  • PROCESS, GOD'S FAITHFUL TOREFINE THE DREAM AND MAKE IT
  • 00:22:51.059 --> 00:22:52.360
  • REFINE THE DREAM AND MAKE ITWHAT HE WANTS IT TO BE.
  • 00:22:52.360 --> 00:22:53.895
  • WHAT HE WANTS IT TO BE.'CAUSE, ULTIMATELY, LIKE JAMIE
  • 00:22:53.895 --> 00:22:55.397
  • 'CAUSE, ULTIMATELY, LIKE JAMIESAID, LIKE, WE'RE ON ONE RACE.
  • 00:22:55.397 --> 00:22:57.499
  • SAID, LIKE, WE'RE ON ONE RACE.LIKE, WE'RE GOING AFTER GOD,
  • 00:22:57.499 --> 00:22:58.300

  • NOTHING'S GONNA STOP OUR GOD.AND SO, I THINK IN REALIZING
  • 00:23:03.572 --> 00:23:05.307
  • AND SO, I THINK IN REALIZINGTHAT, THERE'S A LOT TO BE SAID
  • 00:23:05.307 --> 00:23:06.942
  • THAT, THERE'S A LOT TO BE SAIDABOUT THE PROCESS AND ABOUT THE

  • ABOUT THE PROCESS AND ABOUT THEJOURNEY.
  • 00:23:08.376 --> 00:23:09.711
  • JOURNEY.I THINK, SOMETIMES, WE ASSUME
  • 00:23:09.711 --> 00:23:11.246
  • I THINK, SOMETIMES, WE ASSUMEDREAMS ARE ABOUT THE
  • 00:23:11.246 --> 00:23:12.881
  • DREAMS ARE ABOUT THEDESTINATION, WHEN, REALLY, I
