VISIBLY LOW When we fight in our own strength- God pulls out the rug In human pride to be glorified- acting independent-- smug We may well be on His side—yet still in conflict with Him Ironically give all that we have—strive to His every whim Want vigour to glorify His name—ourselves take credit Inadequate egotistic weak efforts— bring Him the merit What of Faith and pure motives—pleasing His purpose? Independently following good works— wisdom surface Worthy attempts earning honour alone— do not glorify Incandescent submission to His power—display & clarify Withholding permitting Him take the lead— battles to win Instilling visibly low to His visible high--comes peace within Inspired by (Judges 7) © September 2013—Kim van Breda

    This is a wonderful couplet. I'm a couplet fan. I agree that It is so hard to give in to god's ways even though it is to everyone's benefit.

    Strong & deep in its reflections. Though I am Agnostic, I still respect the positive nature of this religious/spritiual perspective. It's very vital to the fabric of our identity.

    Thanks Drake... I do not be believe in 'religion' either, but have a very powerful relationship with God and His son Jesus-- they inspire me to write a lot of my pieces as you have seen :)
