Where I Came From

Now I look to God for everything.
I used to think
I could do it all on my own,
and acted like I didn’t need Him.
I even stopped praying for a while.
My defenses were down but I didn’t care,
I couldn’t see the light.

As long as everything was good on my end,
I could care less;
I could do it all on my own,
I didn’t need Him for anything.
I certainly thought I was better off
following my own path,
until I was thrown off my high horse
and landed on my butt so hard,
I was torn to pieces
only God could put me back together again.
