My Self-Talk

Either God is God,
Or I am.

Either God is all-knowing and wise,
Or I am.

Either I trust God to guide me,
Or I choose my own way.

Either I walk in God’s light,
Or I walk in my own darkness.

Either God’s promises are true,
Or I trust in my own uncertain hopes.

Either God has a good plan and purpose for my life,
Or I try to define my own.

Either I trust my cares and concerns to God’s keeping,
Or I carry my own worries and burdens.

Either I live in God’s rest,
Or I choose my own distress.
May I always remember, my best doesn’t even reach to God’s worst,
And His best far outreaches what I can think or imagine!
The choice is mine.

Will I trust Him?
