It's Not About Me, It's All About You

You’ve seen what I would do for You, 
I’m reminded that You always knew.
It’s not about me, it’s all about You
so it matters not what You lead me through.

It matters not what You lead me through
for all of my days are to glorify You.
If to YOUR plan I will stay true,
there’s no telling what I’ll do for You.

Adversity is harnessed and used of You
but those who know this truth are few.
Others think harsh correcting is what You do
but in reality, they just don’t have a clue.

You came that others know what is true,
that they see life from Your point of view.
Then, the life that they never knew
would be there for them because of You.

    So right.To many people only think of themselves.I am not one of those people.More times than not I try to think of other people cause it's not all about me.Thanx for sharing and I hope all is well with you.Haven't heard from you for a bit.

    Sadly, there are people who think EVERYTHING is about them, Doug. This is one self-centered individual and he/she probably doesn't even realize it. Like I said, sad situation. I enjoyed the creative, satirical nature of this poem very much! Love, Carolyn
