You bite your tongue
You experience friendly fire
In the heat of military combat
You cut yourself when shaving
You overindulge when craving
You trip when you’re walking
You lock your keys in the car
You get lost and don’t know
Exactly where you are?
You accidentally sound your car alarm,
Talk hastily and cause unecessary harm,
Flirt and display your communicative charm.
You put your foot deep in your mouth
As you speak prematurely in conversation
Angering, insulting, and causing degradation.
Your complaints reveal to you yourself
Your selfishness without anyone else
Needing to show you or reveal your ways
Because circumstances are consistent always
As you live your life season by season, day by day
Your weaknesses diminish your ego
Empower you to humbly as an adult grow
Enter into divine relationship and supernatural flow
Whereafter you connect with the Creator to truly know
Sometimes we fall, fail, flail, and flounder along the way
But nevertheless the God of love far above does with us stay.
His grace overcomes our flaws and empowers us always.
