“A Change In Self First”
How long can you keep praying to God
To change everyone else but you?
Quit while you’re ahead and realize
You’re among those who need change,
Your pride’s showing through your words.
You think you’re perfect? You’re not,
Look in the mirror and see yourself,
Look at your heart and see your sins,
See all that needs to be removed,
See how much needs to change
In your heart, in your life.
If you refuse to admit your need
Then you’re just too proud now,
Going nowhere, stuck in place;
It’s a terrible state to be in.
Pray for God to break you down
And bring you to real repentance,
Pray that God will forgive your sins
And wash you clean by Christ’s Blood.
Pray He’ll conform you to Christ’s likeness,
There’s your purpose not to neglect,
There’s sanctification you must desire,
There is growth you must embrace.
Don’t demand change for good in others
If you’re unwilling to be changed yourself.
Seek God’s face, praise Him for grace,
Accept His correction and discipline,
Don’t be proud, God the Father knows you,
You’ve much to learn and plenty to change,
Until your dying breath follow God’s way,
He knows what’s best, there’s no better way than His.
