We hear it so often
What does it really mean?
Is it objective or subjective?
Should I fill in the gaps or let the gaps fill themselves in?
Should other people fill it in for me?
Cause a lot of people are trying to do just that
Especially the people closest to me
Some do it cause they care
Others do it cause they think they know what's good for me better than I do
They don't understand me
But they believe they do
I don't blame them
Cause it's human nature
We think we know another person better than they know themselves
Better than God knows
But I refuse to live other people's reality
I refuse to be defined by the ideology of another person
The ways, lifestyle
Of friends, foes and those who are close
Though sometimes these help
But it can never define my reality
It can never define my life, my truth
It can never define me
So where do I go to for truth
Who should define my reality, my life, my decisions, thoughts and words?
Who should classify my actions, identify my purpose, determine my future?
What or who has this responsibility?
Only 1 has this role
The one knows what I don't know
Sees what I don't see
Understands what I don't understand
The one I call my God
My Knight in shining armour
My King and my salvation
The one who made me royalty
Who has seated me in heavenly places
Above all principalities and powers of darkness
Who makes the impossible possible
Who loved me when I couldn't love myself
Saw me when I couldn't see myself
Knew me when I didn't know myself
Believed in me when I didn't believe in myself
He told me to be strong when I felt like giving up
Gave me hope when I thought all hope is gone
Told me to go his way
Not the way of the crowd
To follow His plans
Not the expectations and plans of men
What people say I can't do or say is too difficult
I say this
My God is above every difficulty and obstacle
So I let Him define my reality and determine my truth
Because He is all knowing
The same yesterday, today and forever
My future is in His hands
