Reliance

Here I stand
Open to see
To turn towards Jesus
But then I see me

I offer my heart
I pray it each day
Then I notice
How I want it my way

This choice sounds easy
But it battles the heart
Self-reliance
Takes faith apart

O’ but Jesus
So blessed by all  you do
The victories you’ve given
When I have relied on you

Although I struggle
To understand your view
I’ve never been disappointed
When I have trusted you

My way is limited
To what little I know
Your way is victorious
And always helps me to grow

“Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.”   John 15:4
