‘defying gravity’

By Jennilee Burton

"(I'm through accepting limits 'cause someone says they're so. Some things I cannot change, but till I try I'll never know. I think I'll try defying gravity, and you can't pull me down.) Though I'm not very familiar with Wicked, I am a huge fan of this song and the message it carries. These lyrics in particular speak to a theme of spiritual resilience for me. I will not be held back by my own self-imposed limits, or by lies whispered to me by the enemy. Even when growth seems impossible, I will at least try. I have confidence that with God's help, I can "defy gravity.""
