Topic: Century or Centuries (02/17/11)
I’m tried of being a whiney-ass little crybaby! I’m more than willing to accept the blessings but when things don’t go the way I think they should I holler and scream. I’m not screaming mad at what I’ve become I’m screaming mad at what I haven’t become. What do I expect? that somehow you’ll magically pour into me patience and acceptance if I follow some eloquent formula of flowery words and then end it all with “in Jesus name”.
I am so stupid! You never intended for me to mince through life thinking that every difficulty that came my way I could just slough off on you. You have filled me with your power, your spirit and what do I do with it? I sit on my butt and say “change? me?, naw, God, That’s your job, I don’t wanna to walk, I wanna be carried! No more! The decision is mine and I choose to use my backbone, stand tall and activate the power of heaven that resides in me.
I hate the devil! And now I see the devil isn’t outside of me the devil is me. I’m the one that separates you from me. I’m the one that keeps miracles at bay. I’m the one that keeps change in my life from occurring. I’m the one who nailed you to the cross.
I‘ve seen the devil
I’ve felt his frame
I’ve seen the devil
Each century the same
I’ve seen the devil
I know his name!
I promise from this day forth I will never, ever, again cry out for your power to rain down from heaven on me. I will never, ever, ask you to do for me what you have empowered me to do for myself.
It’s my choice. Even if it kills me I will praise you in the worst of times.
It’s my choice. And I chose to believe you with my actions
It’s my choice. And choice is the weapon you’ve given me to defeat every enemy I face.
I have seen the devil, and his name is Selfishness.
I have seen the devil, and he looks like me.
