Confessions of the great I Am

I am standing on the threshold of destiny
I see my light shining in the horizon
My past has crumbled behind me like the giant walls of Jericho

I see the heavens opening wide
Over flowing with endless mercies
 
He takes my hand as I strut in, to sit in my rightful place of glory
I was born to be great, I was born to conquer

Like a knight with a sword on his right hand and a shield on his left
I am clothed with purpose and drive
Protected from debilitating negatives of skeptics that only fear what I will become

What I will become once I have rid myself of all judgement
What I will become once I have embraced the great in me
They fear what I will become once I have overcome their thoughts of me
Once I have leaped over the huddles they have set for me


I had wondered why they run away from me,
Starve me of love, support and embrace
I have yearned in vain for their approval

But of course they had to leave
They had to leave  because they did not understand this
They had to leave because they could not contain this
They had to leave because they could not accept this
They had to leave because they could not stop this

Beyond this mountain I have abundance of love,life and Joy
I fear no unknown, my heart is stronger, my spirit is convicted,
My mind is sharper, I am wiser

I have stepped into myself,
Body, mind and soul like hand in glove
Perfectly cut to what God had divinely purposed for my life
Finally, I have no fear,
I have become the great I am meant to be
