weak to strong

I have a habit
perhaps many of you share
I like to think I'm in control
I try to live and breathe and act
in my own power
for awhile, I move along
getting through the days, weeks, months

I bet that doesn't work for you
any better than it does for me
does it?

and when I finally take the time 
to slow, still, surrender
I hear what I already know

your rest will come in obedience
allowing the stream of My Spirit
to move you

abandon any thoughts
of going your own way
or using your own strength
don't try to work it
or figure it out

listen, bend in
I will fill your sails
and My wind will carry you

Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become. 1 Corinthians 12:10 The Message
