The Landmine of Pride ~

the-landmind-of-pride-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

The landmine of pride,
we all step on it . . .
we all think at times
God we can outwit.

We fall into the snare,
of becoming self-reliant
but, what we really are
is being to God defiant.

The landmine of pride,
is satan’s human trap
he knows it will go off
when into our ego’s we tap.

We don’t see the danger,
until after it explodes
and all of our arrogance
God in our life exposes.

The landmine of pride,
will blow up in our face
unless we let God defuse it
with His saving grace!

Fill Me With Humility ~

lord-fill-me-with-humility CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, take me off my pedestal,
my pious stand of conceit
bring me down off of it
and put me at Your feet.

From there let me look,
up to only You
let not my own pride
be in anything more I do.

Lord, take my self-worth,
knock it to the ground
help me to see in myself
there’s no good to be found.

Let me stay on my knees,
until I come to recognize
how my haughtiness
is just rebellion in disguise.

Lord, take me off my pedestal,
rid me of my vanity . . .
let me stay at Your feet
till I’m filled with humility!

Yuck!

Broken by Matt Gruber free photo #285

Lord, today I looked in the mirror,
and I didn’t like what I saw
for I looked past my wrinkles
and saw my spiritual flaws.

All that I could see,
was my selfishness and pride
from the yuck and ugliness
I couldn’t run and hide.

When will I ever learn,
to put others first . . .
Lord, how much longer
till my ego, will You burst.

My self-importance,
is haughtiness evil twin
and arrogance and conceit
to You, is just plain sin.

Lord, today I looked in the mirror,
I witnessed what others see
and I’m sad to say it’s a far cry . . .
of Your image inside me!

Take My Pride, Lord ~

Life A Life Jesus will be Proud of used with permission IBible Verses

Lord, take away the pride,
in the things I say and do
let me take no pleasure
in just my point of view.

Teach me to be humble,
instead of being right
so I can stand worthy
pleasing in Your sight.

Help me to be meek,
less of myself aware
let not my ego cause
other people to despair.

Let me be grateful,
modest in my needs
may I not be haughty
in my acts and deeds.

Lord, take away my pride,
let me make You proud
may it be Your gentle Spirit
that stands out in a crowd!
