Have it Your Way

You take pride in exerting your will
Instead of submitting to Mine
So the emptiness that you now feel
Is because you ignore the Divine

You take pleasure in having your way
In getting in the last word
Making sure they heard what you say
If you were silent it is Me they’d have heard

You plant seeds of what you call fruit
You water and watch over with care
But your harvest is all self-pursuit
You neglect self-denial and prayer

Take control if you want, I won’t deny it
I won’t force you into submission
Run your life as you will, go on try it
I only enter your life with permission

Proverbs 14:12 New King James Version (NKJV)
12 There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death.
Revelation 3:20King James Version (KJV)
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
