When You Try To Get Ahead of A Good Father
I rushed out ahead with a plan in my mind.
When all of the threads began to unwind.
I had run out without asking His will.
I ran out. My mind with my own ideas did fill.
Trust God. Not yourself.
Why didn’t you listen?
His Word and truth a wealth.
Your ears often did christen.
Yet you acted like God wasn’t in control.
Rushing like a china shop bull.
Yet still He gently pulls you back.
And puts your pride up on the rack.
I looked back behind me, and all I could see.
Rubble, wreckage, and not trusting Thee.
My heart now so heavy with conviction of sin.
I sighed because my own heart I’d broken.
I looked up to Jesus and saw Him there.
Beckoning me to cast on Him every care.
Beckoning me to run to that cross.
While feeling like such an incredible loss.
My reputation; I threw in the trash.
My emotions, happy now sad in a flash.
But Jesus is drawing me closer to Him.
He sees the eyes that with tears do swim.
I ran out ahead and thought I was right.
I didn’t ask wisdom. I didn’t trust in God’s might.
Now I’m regretting and feeling so sad.
My niceness was nothing but a cad.
Humbled beneath God’s mighty hands.
Seeing His sovereign loving strands.
Woven throughout the broken pieces.
Shining light into the darkened creases.
I need my Lord Jesus Christ.
Without Him, I’m totally lost.
The older I get, the weaker I am.
Feeling my deep need for the Sacrificial Lamb.
Loved eternally by Him.
Thank you Jesus. I’m grateful.
Without you my life would be empty.
But in You I can be thankful.
Thank you all so much who have kept up with this blog over the last few years. – Right now the Lord has me walking through a hard humbling valley, waiting on Him, regretting some decisions I’ve made, learning to trust Him, and thanking Him for the trials that are shaping me though they’re hard.
