Be Humble

“All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,

“God opposes the proud

but shows favor to the humble.”a

6Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.  8Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.  10And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.” ~1 Peter 5:5b-11

Life

Isn’t about fame

It isn’t about fortune

Or getting love

My father and mother

Told me to share

To give

But as I get older

I’m needing more

I’m wanting more

And all the more I hear

The world around me

Say “It’s okay

To be selfish”

But when you try

You get punished

.

Lift your eyes

To sky

Fall down

On your knees

Humbleness

Is what pleases

The LORD

Stop listening to what

Surrounds you

Stop gripping at the knives

Inside you

And seek ye first

The kingdom

Of righteousness

Of the King

Of bliss

Of the King

Of truth

.

It’s true

I’m needy

But I can’t fill it

With what surrounds me

These games never end

These kisses never

Burn enough

And the fears that plague me

Never stop

Choking me

I try to run away and hide

But all I see is

Emptiness inside

And out

.

The LORD

He is your shield

The LORD

He is your strength

He knows you need

And He satisfies

He knows your heart

And He sanctifies

Be Holy

As He is

And bow down your heart

To the King

.

Hope in the Light

Of the Savior

He is the Light

He is salvation

Seek His Light

Do not fear the darkness

Oh LORD be our light

Save us from the darkness

Lord to You I surrender

Oh surrender

To the King

.

“33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” ~Matthew 6

“5This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
8If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.” ~1 John 1
