It is what it is... and that’s all. But, it positively is everything it is!
It is the truth.
It’s the possession we currently possess—not limited in any way to material possessions, but it’s also our skills, knowledge, experiences, attitudes and values, and a whole lot more. Possession is not ‘nine tenths of the law’ for just little reason. Possession ‘is’ and it becomes everything of meaning.
It’s the present status quo and the situational constructs that embrace us.
It’s the hopes, plans and dreams we hold to (or those that hold us)—those that are creating for us our enduring identities; those forming even as we think and speak.
It’s reliable whilst it doesn’t change—we can safely behold its beauty and majesty right now before change all-too-soon arrives.
This ‘is’ – it’s the Greek ‘is’ i.e. estin – it exists – it bears – it sustains; just now. In certain contexts it is an eternal ‘is’ – for instance, “Worthy is the Lamb,” as set out in Revelation 5:12.
This ‘is’ is quantifiable, observable, containable and undeniable.
It is the firmest of all realities—that which ‘is’ right now.
Take it—it’s yours!
