God Must Increase

When I was a little child,
my faith in God was strong.
The older I got,
the weaker it became.

I became my own god.
I entrusted everything
into my own hands.

I made poor choices and permanent decisions
that I clearly thought were best for me.
And when they didn’t work out,
I’d turn to God and ask “why?”

Sometimes cursing at Him,
not knowing He was trying
to save me from myself

As the years go by
and I become weaker,
I’m learning to depend on God
as I did when I was a little child.
