Take My Pride Away

Kutless - Pride AwayI had a moment today where I saw something generous that I did, and was proud that I did it, as though I could ever do anything good outside of God giving me the ability to.  As though I could give anything away unless He first gave it to me.   In that moment, I realized I was proud, taking glory for myself, and repented.

~ I thank you God for what you have given me, help me to have open hands, and an open heart so you can give through me, and that I take no glory for myself.  Take my pride away

Here is a song that came to mind, the lyrics are below:

Have you ever seen a man stumble and fallen,
all due to his pride
I don’t want to be another one
Fallen due to my pride
Woah…

Take my pride away,pride away
Take my pride away

Lord keep me only focused on You
Make me a humble man
Don’t ever let me take the credit
For all that You have done
Woah…

Take my pride away, pride away
Take my pride away

Away…..

Standing here amidst this point of definition
Pushing for position as I battle opposition
Am I on a mission or is it all in vain?
Do u notice the difference or is it all the same?
And who do I blame when my vision get blurry I
Get in a hurry frustrated and feeling fury
Faith is enduring to stand the test of time
Answers are plain we make them hard to define
But pull from divine when problems arise
But pride denies and my stand never survives
In every one of our lives in every single day
We need to lay down our pride as God takes it away

Take my pride away,pride away….

    Gotta say Chris when we do good(whatever it may be) … I think that the Father is proud of us because we are looking more like his son! Gal 6:9 Do not be weary in doing good, for in good season(time) you will reap a harvest of righteousness IF you do not give up ! Self Pride is puffed up it says it’s all about me – the kind that says I am better than you – but I honestly think when we are following scripture, we can be happy, even “proud” of following him…. the kind of proud that I get when I was little and pleased my daddy- I still feel proud like that – I don’t think In my ability I can do what I did – I know it all comes from him- and the intention of heart is to do good- which also comes from HIM – but I gotta say I like to please my daddy – and I think I do feel “proud” when I am obediant – is that wrong – I don’t think so…… BTW love the lyrics !!!!!!
