Banish Independence

Too long I stood firm with shoulders held back, boldly upright, resisting wisdom's push to fall humbly upon my knees. If only I had not been so slow to learn.

The pride of the human spirit is a wicked thing, it distances all men from the Throne of Grace. It lies to us, explaining all we need to conquer in life is found within.

If only I had learned to pray this short prayer so long ago...

O Lord I need you more than: 

the days needs the sun

the birds need a sky

the heart hungers for love

the soul longs for a companion

the mouth thirsts for water or

the dust cries for rain.

O Lord I need you this day. Amen

I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13)

When humbly fallen before the Light of the World men see themselves to be so thin.

Today's Soul Snippet:

God blasts pride but blesses humility.
