Surrender December 2, 2009Eirene Giving up my rights, it seems Denying my desires and dreams Is what the Lord requires of me Dying to all hidden pride And self-delight that seeks to hide In secret places deep inside Holding nothing as my own Empty, I approach His throne All confidence in self is gone See the white flag lifted high My surrender signified Let all of self be crucified Until it is not I, but Christ.

“All confidence in self is gone”
Due to repeated unsuccessful efforts to lift myself, I am forced once again to humble myself under God’s mighty hand in order that He might lift me in due time. I cast all associated anxiety on Him and am content to leave it there because I know He cares for me and has a plan that is tailor made for me. It will surely not consist of any ‘self’ confidence.
I have recently been thinking a lot on the subject of humility. As believers, we can all agree how necessary this virtue is, yet we so often run from the very things that would produce it in us.
