WHAT MAKES ME TICK?

What makes me tick?
ďOh! You are wondering that tooĒ
Well then, just what makes me tick would be good to know.
Now that I am thinking about it, just what is it that makes me tick?

Well, I donít really think I know
Just what makes me tick.
There are things that I do, there are things I say
But not that I think about it, Iím not sure just what makes me tick.

lf I were to ask myself; at least on the outside,
Just what makes me tick?
I would say that I try to say and do things that would be kind.
But what is on the inside, just what is it that really makes me tick?

To Godís word I have turned,
I have tried to take a good look.
I have told myself I want to follow His way.
But even with that desire, whatís inside? What really makes me tick?

Many years ago, at least it seems now,
I wanted a black and white list
Which would direct my every tum.
But even with that desire at least on the outside, what really makes me tick?

During those years, at least it seems now,
I wanted the list so I could still pick and choose
That which would direct my every turn.
But even with this thought, do I really know what makes me tick?

I can see through dim shadowy memories
Years where it was just hard,
To give myself to yield myself; wholly and completely to God.
But with this realization, can I even now really know what makes me tick?

I say to myself and I say to God
I want to follow your way.
I feel myself more yielding but am I wholly, completely given to God?
But with this desire will l, can I, really know what makes me tick?

Any good that I do is Godís doing.
All the bad is my own choosing.
Shall l repeat? All the bad is my own choosing.
But with this statement, does it help me know what makes me tick?

I think we are closer to knowing,
Just what it is that makes me tick.
(But I am not sure I like what it is pointing to.)
Does it seem to say not following Godís way enters into the picture of just what makes me tick?

l really want to change and I think I am.
For just recently I thanked God for your guiding words.
What you said was needful even though I at first I didnít want to listen.
Sometimes I donít know what makes me tick.

I accepted your words and gave God thanks,
He knew l needed a helpmate like you.
I accepted your correction and felt glad I did.
But sometimes I still donít know what makes me tick.

I see it more now that I am not perfect
(though I have acted as if I were)
I want to accept God growing me so that sometime
I will know just what it is that makes me tick.
