By Rick L King
If we are going to find true life
Then there is a lesson that we must learn
Instead of building a kingdom of self
For His kingdom we must yearn
We pray and pray
Yet our desires seem to not be met
As we are living for self
And what we think we should get
Jesus said that we must die
If we are to find true life
We must be crucified with Him
So there is and end to all of our strife
We seem to think
That it is all about me
When actually that is a lie
We have believed from the enemy
We ask God to come into agreement
With all our wants and needs
Yet do we stop and think
Maybe that it is God that we should seek to please
Do we seek the Lord
As to what He would desire?
Or do we focus on self
And the worldly things we want to acquire?
If we are crucified with Christ
Then we are supposed to be dead
So how then can we run the show?
When Christ alone should be the head?
All of our pain and misery
And the demons we entertain
Would be far from us
If Godís will we did not disdain
If we could but just surrender
And seek His will first
And walk in agreement with Him
We would find an end to our selfish thirst
God is a jealous God
He canít work when we lead
We must surrender our control
And His voice alone, heed
Then and only then
Will we learn His ways
And get up in the morning expectant
And have Son lit glorious days.
