grace for the humble

But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
James 4:6

My pride gets in the way
of everything God wants to do in me
I take credit for my day
and draw attention to what I see

My self is in the spotlight
and I think I am infinitely cool
but that picture is not right
without God I'm a fool

I need to step down
away from my foolish proud heart
The way to come around
is to relinquish the lead part

When I turn away
wipe the smug pride from my face
then a brand new day
can be changed by God's grace

The only sure thing
that will not make me stumble
is bowing to Jesus the King
May He make me humble

- Prepare your minds for action.
1 Peter 1:13
