My Pride

Thought I’d given it all to You

Thought I was willing to rise or fall

Thought I’d be ready to praise You

Even if You said to me “Not right now”.

~

Well it came

The answer I dreaded

The fear I’ll remain the same

I still don’t know where I’m headed

I thought I got over it

Reasonably well

But I refused to speak to You after it

As if this made it worth going to Hell

~

Oh! Foolishness!

The result of my pride

Oh! Deadness!

The result when I hide

Tis true, LORD, I feel wounded

Your sword struck deep

But trials are where faith is founded

Growth from a ram to a pure white sheep

Yes, I am wounded, LORD

But I will not be ashamed

Mold me, shape me, make me

Into the image of Your Son

Into the image of Your Son

No matter what it takes

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.  For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brothers.  And those He predestined He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified.”

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?  As it is written: ‘For your sake we face death al day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’  No in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

(Romans 8:28-30, 35-39, NIV)
