Have it Your Way

  • I had my life all planned out
  • I was going to make it happen, without a smidgen of doubt

 

  • My plans, they were a SURE THING!
  • There was no room for any swing

 

  • I set my compass upon the destination 
  • There was absolutely no hesitation

 

  • Come whatever predicament there may
  • In my hardened steel will there was no give nor sway

 

  • I was so! so! so! self-assured, that my vision became my cult
  • In this state of self-righteousness, with God I did not even bother to consult 

 

  • It was a given, after all, that God would surely see it my way
  • Oh Mighty One, adjust Your will to mine, I would preach, prod, and pray

 

  • Ooooohhh, god-of-my-way, how could You not answer these DEMANDS of mine
  • Can’t You see, these plans are oh so sublime

 

  • It truly was an ego fest supreme
  • It was a total logic scheme 

 

  • As they say, and so too do the Proverbs, “pride goeth before the fall”
  • And so too was my ego brought down to a worm’s crawl

 

  • It took many a year for me to invoke the prayer for humility 
  • Finally, it occurred to me to ask God for Their reality 

 

  • Imagine that…

 

  • And so little by little, Grace, ABUNDANT GRACE chiseled away at my iceberg of an ego
  • Over time i began seeing the Wisdom in God’s credo

 

  • And so little by little, i began trusting God’s Divine Design
  • Over time i chose to walk the Divine line 

 

  • And now, i see, You know me better than anyone else
  • You did after all, with Your Holy Breath, with life, me, bless

 

  • And now, i see, You know me better than even me
  • You did after all, Promise, from bondages to set me free

 

  • Yes, it is true, i had my life all planned out
  • But You, O Lover of Souls had a better route

 

  • i see now that in my way i would have self-destructed 
  • i see now that in Your Way,  i am being healed and reconstructed 

 

  • i am grateful now that my way did not come to pass
  • i am grateful now that in Your Way, threshed out was the chaff 

 

  • Keep showing me The Way, Your Grace filled Way
  • For it truly is good being Your Child at play

 

  • “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and God’s Righteousness,
  • and all these things shall be added unto you.”  
  • Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith
  • Bible

 

  • Abundant Wisdom, Grace, and Blessings,
