Fill Me With Humility ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

lord-fill-me-with-humility CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, take me off my pedestal,
my pious stand of conceit
bring me down off of it
and put me at Your feet.

From there let me look,
up to only You
let not my own pride
be in anything more I do.

Lord, take my self-worth,
knock it to the ground
help me to see in myself
there’s no good to be found.

Let me stay on my knees,
until I come to recognize
how my haughtiness
is just rebellion in disguise.

Lord, take me off my pedestal,
rid me of my vanity . . .
let me stay at Your feet
till I’m filled with humility!

Proverbs 16:18
King James Version

“Pride goeth before destruction,
and an haughty spirit before a fall.”
