trying or relying?

i read a blog post this morning by Jason Curlee (http://ht.ly/1K4j) that REALLY spoke to me.  i sat down to journal about it, and this is what came out.  i hope it speaks to you like Jason’s blog spoke to me…

i’m trying to be a great husband

trying to be both father and daddy to my kids

i’m trying to succeed in business and life

instead of relying completely on Him

 

are you trying or relying

holding on or letting go

He waits for you with arms wide open

to quit trying and start relying on Him to show

 

i’m trying to make sense of my finances

trying to keep the every plate in a spin

i’m trying to juggle all the demands life is sending

instead of relying completely on Him

 

are you trying or relying

holding on or letting go

He waits for you with arms wide open

to quit trying and start relying on Him to show

 

He wants to lead through me

He wants to be my strength

He wants to be my center

He’ll go to any length

so quit trying to do it

quit trying so hard

quit relying on your own might

And start relying on God’s

 

are you trying or relying

holding on or letting go

He waits for you with arms wide open

to quit trying and start relying on Him to show

 

Maybe this needs another stanza?  Where are you trying instead of relying?
