Jeremiah 10:23 I know, O LORD, that the way of man is not in himself, that it is not in man who walks to direct his steps.


Gerri Aylor (GiGi) C @ 09/28/2020

Today I trusted in myself,

It didn't work I see

I planned the day, just what I'd do,

Twas all in vain for me

I've learned I cannot trust in man,

God's word proved that is true

And you can't trust your feelings;

Hey, that is nothing new


Well, I recalled what must come first

In early morning light

The worship of my Lord my God,

Who makes my day alright

The world will always trick you;

It's OK, “just have your way”

But if you sin, what's coming is

A dark and heavy day


We'll never have the energy

To change our way of life

Until we call on Jesus;

He'll save us from the strife

We often plan our lives so sure;

This is what we all do

But truly God, it's in Your hands,

It's totally up to you!
