Autopilot – when I go through the motions
Head down, resolved, ready to do whatever it takes to make it happen
And then I sometimes break as resistance pushes me to realize I’m not built to maintain; I’m built for greatness.
Not greatness I’ve built with the persistent efforts of my hands, but greatness that comes only when I let go of my ambitions and allow yours to take over.
I ask so often for you to take all of me and then I feel injured when it’s pointed out that I can’t do everything on my own.
Why I allow the stubborn me to crawl off the altar of sacrifice and proffer a vote, I’ll never understand.
So today, once again, take it ALL.
Take my rights, my self preservation, my emotions, my ambitions, my plans.
Make them yours and use them for your glory.
I will fix my eyes firmly where they should stay, on the prize of the high calling of Christ.
There my feet find wings and fly, above the clutter, into your presence.
There, I find peace.
