O Lord it’s hard to “BE” humble, to stoop and give up “OUR” stiff neck; To bend low in submission admitting where “OUR” strength comes from?
To point to Heaven honors who You are. To obey proves it! Either You are Sacred, Holy, Special or the players are? Who is it?
To compromise and tolerate who You are Father would “BE” to agree to a higher power that succeeds not in their own making but in spite of “OUR” own efforts. To think beyond comprehension like a hand in glove or a head in helmet, Spirit wholly dependant on You “BE”ing right-in-us to win. Anything else is just a shell game.
That is what the world we get when we are bent out of shape over the best we can do in facing defeat. “OUR” best is never good enough.
The sin is in the details that chew us out for how we played the game and bankrupt the playbook. The paybacks of trying every play and watching others win the game; that’s when the blame game begins at the shame losing brings. We never learn to lose gracefully, to eat humble pie.
To see an end run around what causes a hole to open and deliver the ball through the upright is overwhelming.
To bow to a higher power that gets all the glory is “Glorious”!
