My Destruction – Proverbs 16:18

My Destruction – Proverbs 16:18

My destruction
All my pride
Could it all have been avoided
If I had opened up my world
Let them in sooner
To the darkness
And the despair
Could the fall have been less
If not for stubborn pride
A typical man
Wouldn’t show my weakness
Not until it was too late
And all came down
Then pride fell
And the light came in
To set me free
From the worst of myself
To open the doors
To a better path
To a better life

Too Proud – Proverbs 16:18

Too Proud – Proverbs 16:18

Too proud
To ask for help
Too proud
To show I was weak
Too proud
To save myself
Too proud
To avoid my destruction

Humbled
When I could go no more
Humbled
When I saw the truth
Humbled
When I heard His voice
Humbled
When I accepted His love

Kingdom Of Ruin – Proverbs 16:18

Kingdom Of Ruin – Proverbs 16:18

Was I too proud
To let them see
To admit to the world
Inside I was crumbling
I did it myself
Built a kingdom of ruin
Full of empty bottles
And broken promises
From my tower I fell
A king without a crown
But today I stand thankful
I fell into the Father’s arms
Where my pride fell away
There upon my knees
With every tear
It fell so far away
So I called His name
Asked Him for help
My Lord, He answered me
Lifting me to my feet
So now I tell of who I was
But also how He turned
This sorry life around
