The inside me often disagrees
with the outside me
See, they have very different perspectives
different - … ,
well they're just different.
They've both had it difficult,
but in different, very distinct ways.
And that leads to differences in opinion and to opposition.
Opposing views, opposed decisions
that in the end they need to resolve
to agree where they disagree.
Agree a way forward.
If you think the outside me would prevail,
you have been deceived and failed to conceive
just how much the inner man can conserve
energy until its needed to win the day
And so the outer me concedes,
(not defeat, but a passing loss),
because in the end they're in this together.
Inner or Outer.
A toss of the same coin.
One of us winning whichever side comes up,
whichever, whoever ends up on top.
Like I say, don't be fooled by the outward façade.
Take the longer view.
Look at the heart.
I Samuel 16.7 - "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
