God!

Iím tried of being a whiney-ass little crybaby! Iím more than willing to accept the blessings but when things donít go the way I think they should I holler and scream. Iím not screaming mad at what Iíve become Iím screaming mad at what I havenít become. What do I expect? that somehow youíll magically pour into me patience and acceptance if I follow some eloquent formula of flowery words and then end it all with ďin Jesus nameĒ.

God!

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 ďchange? me?, naw, God, Thatís your job, I donít 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.

God!

I hate the devil! And now I see the devil isnít outside of me the devil is me. Iím the one that separates you from me. Iím the one that keeps miracles at bay. Iím the one that keeps change in my life from occurring. Iím the one who nailed you to the cross.



God!

IĎve seen the devil
Iíve felt his frame

Iíve seen the devil
Each century the same

Iíve seen the devil
I know his name!

God!

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.

God!

Itís my choice. Even if it kills me I will praise you in the worst of times.
Itís my choice. And I chose to believe you with my actions
Itís my choice. And choice is the weapon youíve given me to defeat every enemy I face.


God!

I have seen the devil, and his name is Selfishness.
I have seen the devil, and he looks like me.

You've filled this with raw emotion and have given me a lot to think about.
Helen Curtis02/26/11
I really like this, the passion and content in it is something I relate to!

May I add my two cents worth? I believe that God wants us to call on him to rain down his power on us, because it's only in his strength that we can even hope to resist the devil. James 4:7-10 is a wonderful scripture that supports that!

Sorry if I'm being 'preachy,' it's only because I identify with your piece so much and want to encourage you!

This is a strong piece with a great message. We each inherited our sinful natures but with God's help, we can overcome it. Good job.
I agree with the scripture reference Helen listed in her comment.
