Doing it my own way,
Mantra of our present day,
Surely hasn’t worked for me;
Messes up life; causes calamity.
Even from some church leaders mouths
Got advice that’s not always sound.
Steps 1 through 7 rarely work,
Feel good programs produce no fruit.
Went to seminars and classes galore
They help some, but I always want more.
None of it produces more love or power.
There’s something wrong; no Holy Ghost shower.
Then I read John chapter six.
The people wanted a “their way” fix.
Jesus said NO to religious effort by men.
Want miracles? Know, Believe, the One the Father sent.
Oh Wow! I give up, Lord!
Humbly I lean on Your Word.
Bowing down, receiving mercy.
Not my strength, but YOURS eternally!
That’s how love and power flows
Seeking Him and all He knows.
Resting in His arms by faith.
Doing life in amazing grace!
