They are Hard but Necessary

My arrogance has become a part of me,
A useless organ has my pride become.
I plea to the Almighty to remove it from me,
My King, I cry that you cut out my rebellion.
For I long to have a perfect bond with You,
My God is the only One I wish to be close to.
But my pride is separating me from you,
My rebelliousness has divided us.
Therefore I will turn from my arrogance,
In repentance, I will reject my willful nature.
How freeing it is to be abandon pride,
What joy it is to embrace repentance and forgiveness.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in me a humble…
