Once I thought that I was great,
I talked to others to inflate
My ego and I would negate
Which caused me then to deviate
From courtesy and alienate
Those I thought would appreciate
My worth though I did overstate.
I found that; although, some did tolerate
The Lord began to annihilate
Those things so I would really hate
The sin and truly begin to accommodate
My life to His and cooperate
According to His will. He is the propitiate.
Only true believers can do this all because Christ works in them and through them…not because they can do it themselves.
