As For Me

Everyone around me

may be going one way


But as for me

I will go the way You show me


They may invent new “truth”

and follow their own broken hearts


But as for me

I will stand solidly on Your timeless wisdom


All may bow to the world

and its ways


But as for me

I bow only to You, Lord


I will not be swayed

by a crowd mentality

by expendable truth

by waves of cultural norms

by popular opinion


As for me

I am with You, God


My commitment to You

clings to who You’ve promised

Yourself to be


On the love

that You gave me

proved so beautifully


As for me

I follow You


– Susie Stewart


As for me, I call to God,
    and the Lord saves me.

– Psalm 55:16 (NIV)


But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.

– Joshua 24:15 (NIV)


But as for me, I trust in You.

– Psalm 55:23 (NIV)
