Oh, God the closer we draw near
The more we do in your name
The harder it is for us to hear
If our wishes are really the same

It's hard to remember you save by grace
It is easy to be self centered and boast
Forgetting you gave us each a place
Where you know we are needed most

We do good works for our own sake
To be lifted high in others eyes
The glory, we take all we can take
And miss the needy's plantive cries

When we forget to who we belong
Remind us we are your work of art
Let your Holy Spirit in us be strong
Show us what is needed on our part

Humble us to accept your unique plan
To step into our predestined place
And fill it it as only you know we can
With love, with mercy and with faith

Beautiful. Oh, that we could all be small enough in our own eyes to make Him big in everyone else's. Great take on the topic.

Reading your poem I realize
Your words run deep and true.
I read it again and now surmise
There's a future in writing for you!

Noice. Honestly, this is a great poem, and could easily be written into a song. Thank you, Jeryl! This was a fun read.
