the truth is...

i am nothing, on my own.

i am selfish, prideful, and judgmental. 

dreams and desires, hopes and goals

are pointless without a purpose; a realization of their origin.

where do dreams come from? from where do unique ideas spring up?

i create, because i was created. i hope, because he has hope for me.

i live because he breathed life into me.

i am nothing. have nothing. can do nothing.
without him.

what is a dream without a purpose? 
what is a work of art without a creator? 
what is life without a savior?

nothing.


but, because of him


i have everything.
and the possibilities are endless.
