the size of my paycheck
or even if i get one

the clothes I have,
where I got them
or the labels inside them

the house I live in,

or fancy and new

the diplomas I have,
where they are from
or where they “should” be from

It’s all just stuff.

God doesn’t care
what clothes I wear
what car I drive

He loves me in spite of my stuff.

When I get caught up in needing more, needing new
He still loves me
He waits right by me
