The Pride Cycle

We start with His love,

Thousands of ways to say thank you,

Thousands of reasons to show gratitude.

Our default here is to choose right,

To accept self care,

To take care of and care for other people

He lives with us and guides us,

But pride sinks in,

Confidence rages,

We begin to wonder why we need God,

Or we have simply forgotten Him.

And he leaves us to our own demise.

We become numbed by the comfort, control and significance

Utilizing the idols which we blindly succumb to

For the few chosen souls,

Gods double edge sword,

Pierces the heart,

Exposing the painful reality and the damage done,

Lifes circumstances bring every man and woman to their knees,

And we experience the beauty of His amazing grace.

Ending with His love.
