Destined for Greatness by Bevan Boggenpoel


I’ve been told I’m stupid

I will amount to nothing

even though God –

has destined me for something.


I was brainwashed by many

that I’m useless

I cannot do anything

that could impress.


just as I was about to believe –

my destiny is doomed

God took control

then I was groomed.


into a vessel –

that God could use

I turned my life around

and left many confused.


what man has written off

God comes and takes

he makes you a new person

forgives all your mistakes.


everybody can –

amount to something

this I will shout

testify and sing.
