Here’s how God “works” –
Just when everything’s looking good
And our humility’s decided to take a hike –
God will place a few unexpected obstacles in our path
To trip us up.
Isn’t it obvious that the more humility we’re able to retain –
The more our capacity for love can grow –
Which is why God wants us to experience a few failures.
God encourages greater humility to accompany increasing success
So we can continue experiencing our vulnerability.
It’s like riding a bike – the faster we go –
The less thought we need to give to what we’re doing.
This is what God wants
And what Jesus gave his life demonstrating:
“One eye on ourselves
And the other on God” –
If we can live this way
We’ll find God and ourselves
Becoming friends, at last.
