LEARN TO LEAN
Author Unknown

Jesus is our anchor in the storms of life!!


It took me forever, Lord, to learn how to lean.
To leave my friends as you lovingly began to wean.
I know I was stubborn, and I dug in my heels,
And when you applied pressure did I ever squeal.

It was a concept, Lord, that I just hadn't learned,
And obviously . . . I was not too much concerned.
But as my old leaning-posts were taken away,
Routine confidence . . . began rapidly to fray.

Then your Holy Spirit, made it abundantly clear,
To you alone, Lord, must I ultimately adhere.
Only in your word and Spirit, may I ever grow strong,
As you continue to teach me, a blessed new song.

It is not in friends and others, that I will understand.
All my strength and wisdom, must come to me firsthand.
No longer can another, walk me through the task,
For only in Your guidance, may I safely bask.

Keep on teaching me Lord, and keep me close to you.
(For without you beside me I haven't got a clue)
I belong to you Lord I am your creation . . .
I want only to praise you without cessation!
