Life’s much easier when you can see better, right?


I wish I could see what I could be;

Despite what my eyes behold in the present;

I want to believe something better awaits me in the future;

But it’s hard to when the numbers do not add up;

When the odds are super against me;

When logic and rationale fail to be on my side;

And my faith is shaken and sifted with nothing left as residue;

I wished someone would have told me earlier;

To focus on the promise and not the problems;

To magnify my God and not the troubles;

To keep my eye on the prize and not the bumps on the road;

To believe regardless instead of believing on account of;

To hope in the vision of what I could be;

And not settle for how my present circumstances seek to define me.

Henceforth, I refuse to wear the lens of logic the world commends;

Because it limits where and how far I can go;

I choose to talk to the mountain of challenges to move;

Instead of talking about and brooding over them;

I will see my life the way God sees it;

Because His vision is perfect; clearer than the world’s best lenses

No matter how dark the tunnel;

How gloomy the skies;

How seemingly hopeless the situation;

I choose to focus on the vision and not the setting;

As my words would become my reality;

I choose to bless my life and not curse it;

I am who God says I am;

My path has already been laid out for me;

It’s up to me to tread on it;

As long as I keep my vision in mind;

Come what may, the storm or flame;

I’ll get to my expected end.
