For You and Not Against You

How easy it is to grumble and complain
About everything you are not
Than bring you before the throne of grace in prayer
How easy it is to focus on what you say or don’t say
Do or don’t do
Rather than be concerned if my own heart is right before the Lord
How easy it is to forget that I am for you
And not against you
That I have been called to come alongside you and be your champion
Lord, help me to focus on what You are calling me to be
To remove the plank from my own eye
In humility help remove the speck from another’s eye

  1. This is lovely Susan; in humility we can't focus on ourselves, but rather we need to completely submit to God and die to ourselves, because we can’t be full of God if we are full of ourselves! :)Blessings and hugs,Denise
