SUCH A DEAD DOG AS I

Sure there is similarity, I once was lost to sin!

Lame in both my feet, believe this man and I are twin!

.

Never thought myself lame until I came to His side.

Found then not just lameness, hastened to Him to abide.

.

“What am I, thy servant, that you should look upon myself?”

Could such humility then identify this self?

.

“Humble yourself, so He will exalt you in due time…” (1)

I do not seek exaltation, just abide with the Divine!

.

“Come to Me,” my Lord said, “And I will give you rest.” (2)

Is this not exaltation sufficient to be blest?

.

Heaven will be exaltation plenty for this son!

As it should appropriate for each and every one!

.

So humble yourself (3) you may prove a blessing yet!

It is nothing in yourself but in the Perfect one you met!

.

You know the Perfect one is Jesus, He is alone in every way!

He alone can teach perfection as we follow Him each day!

.

.

(1) 1 peter 5:6 “Humble yourself…” Look them up, do you good

(2) Matthew 11:28-30

(3) “Humble yourself under the mighty Hand of God and He will exalt you.”
