I Had Wrapped Myself

Post  WARRIOR on Thu 03 Feb 2011, 3:08 pm

I had wrapped myself
With the cloak of pride
It blinded me to my faults
I thought I was above reproach
The Lord humbled me ~
He saw fit to send me illness
I was forced to admit and ask
The help of others in my life
I had to accept my limitations
My health has become weak ~
Once I was arrogant
I felt invincible and self sufficient
Now I have yielded to the Lord
He is my strength and main stay ~
In His mercy he has shown
Me the conditions of my heart
In love and patience He changes me
Daily I turn to him for strength
I surrendered my ways ~
No longer leaning on my understanding
No longer dare I question God
And it is a process of humility
A great gift of Divine Mercy ~
I am but a man, flesh
Who has come to respect and love
The hand of God in all His ways
Now I understand the scripture ~
“For in my weakness is His strength”.

Humility is a key to prosperity
brokenness brings beauty
