Pride – Proverbs 11:2

Pride – Proverbs 11:2

Stoic pride
To nothing leads
Just isolation
Lost
All alone
My fall
The disgrace
Shadows
Echoing darkness
This is where
All my pride
Lead me to
Until at the bottom
Bottom of the fall
The humility left
In this shrink soul
Cried out for held
A saviour
A reason
Just to live
Simply be
Not like this
For so much more
And came the Saviour
A light
To lead the way
Cut from these bones
The pride
It fell
It dies
And I came alive
In truth
In wisdom
In hope
In grace

Took A Walk – Proverbs 11:2

Took A Walk – Proverbs 11:2

I took a walk
With pride at my side
And when the way
Became hard of step
In disgrace my fall
My end I found

I took to my knees
Humble before the Lord
He spoke His great words
As peace cloaked my heart
His wise words my way
My new beginning I found

Proverbs 11:2

Proverbs 11:2

Pride can lead us down avenues we should never tread, it lead me into a darkness from which I nearly didn’t return, thankfully we have a God who forgives and leads us into light.

STARLIGHT by BETHEL MUSIC and KALLEY HEILIGENTHAL
You’re like starlight in the dark
Endless miles can’t conceal You
Every glimmer is a spark
Catching fire as You break through

Oh, You’re not far away
You’re coming close
And Oh, even as I wait
You’re coming close

You’re like summer in the night
The sun goes down but still I feel You
And every shadow’s turning bright
Every broken heart is made new

Oh, You’re not far away
You’re coming close
And Oh, even as I wait
You’re coming close

There’s no heart unseen
There’s no space between You and I
You are closer than the very oxygen
I’m breathing in, I breath You in
You are God with us
You are here with us, Emmanuel
You are infinite, You glory has no end
Jesus, Jesus

You’re like treasure in the sea
Wind and waves could never move You
And You are shining in the deep
Every searching eye will find You
