Lord, all of my days are held in your hands.
You are so much bigger than what this life demands.
Yet I forget you, ignore you, push you aside,
And try to do everything alone with my pride.
In all that I do, God, I try to please thee,
But how can I do this if I focus on me?
I struggle, I fight it, I promise to change,
I call out to you and rely on your name.
I humble myself and trust you with my life,
But I see myself do this, and it fills me with pride.
I ask you to lead me, show me what to do,
But Lord, when you show me, I steal the credit from you.
Each day I’m working to just stay afloat
When if only I trusted you, you’d provide me a boat,
Or even more so, you would calm all my seas
And allow me to walk on the waves like the breeze.
God, I know that I need you, and I need less of me, too.
Please keep me focused and humbled to you.
