[CHORUS]

So much negativity,
All around me,
But I’m not going to take it,
No more.
( I’m gonna do something about it...)

[VERSE]

They said I ain’t this, they said I ain’t that, they say I won’t make it because I’m black They said I won’t make it look at the stats. But my God is bigger, so I’m better than that. I turn negatives into positives ( yeah) negatives into positives (yeah) they only see it from the subjective (yeah), but I see it from the sky… the objective (yeah).

[PRE CHORUS]

I will make it if I try
I will make because of Christ.
I will make it if I try
I will make it with God inside. Oh, oh

[CHORUS]

[VERSE 2]

They say we ain’t this , they say we ain’t that They say we ain’t good / They say we ain’t jack / But we keep moving on and don’t react, we keep moving on and never look back We turn negatives into positives, ( yeah) Negatives into positives ( yeah) they only see it from the subjective , but we see it from the sky… the objective.

[PRE CHORUS 2]

We will make it when we try,
we will make it when we’re on God’s side.

We will make it and reach new heights, oh, oh.

[CHORUS]

Look at the clock , clock , clock,

I’m on top, top, top, of the rock, rock , rock
you can’t block , block , block

[CHORUS]

    So much negativity,

    But I’m not going to take it,
    No more.
    ( I’m gonna do something about it...)

    Just look at the media,  turn on the news and listen to what people are saying. It's easy to feel like Isaiah and say " Woe unto me, for I am ruined because I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among people of unclean lips" ( Isaiah 6:5). We are constantly bombarded with foul language, and people acting out selfishly. Yet, I can be the change I want to see in the world by acting out of love and compassion like Jesus.

    There is a lot of talk about white privilege, and that I can't make it without government assistance, and that the stats for black men going to jail are high, and that I have so much against me, and that I can't make it. But with Christ, and the stories I hold in my heart of Joseph, and Job... I know that all the negative stuff is nothing for my God to handle. There will always be opposition, but my God is greater, Hallelujah!

    I am not called to be successful in the world's but faithful in God's eyes. Faithfulness, and following through with God's word is a true success. Many times people don't even try, because they think they can't make it. Even if I don't think I'll "make it" I'm going to give my best to God. That is my success!

    Sometimes we don't even try because of the negativity we have experienced in the past. But the truth is that we get stronger every time we try, and with God all things are possible.

    It's not enough just to talk,  but we must walk out what God has told us, and not delay.

    We must be bold, and apply what we learned.
