Oh Lord, Humble Me


Oh God, if I could just follow
The example that You set
Through Jesus on the Cross
And all my pride forget,
To be able to sit and listen
Not needing to be heard,
To take correction and suggestion
Without saying a word
To crucify my flesh
And walk within Your Spirit
To welcome Your reproofs
And be open enough to hear it
To let Your will not mine
Be governing in my life
To bury selfish ambitions
Which I know will create strife
God help me to accomplish
The task you sent me here to do
I take “myself” out of the picture
I hand the controls to You

  1. I was sexually, mentally, emotionally and verbally abused by my grandfather as far back as I can remember. He did many terrible things, some of which are too distasteful for me to talk about publicly. I want to share my testimony, because so many people have been hurt, and they need to realize that someone has made it through their struggles so they can have hope. More than anything, I want you to know and really understand that anyone who has been abused can fully recover if they will give their life completely to the Lord...It may seem impossible, but God's truth has set me free from a life of pretense and lies and has restored my soul. I am living proof that nothing is too hard for God. No matter what you've been through or how bad you've been hurt, there is hope!
    My book is available at Amazon and I would love for each person who has liked this page to order a copy. Each copy sold will go toward the prevention of child abuse across the country and world. The Little Girl Inside. God Bless, Diane Waltman
