Peace Be Still
PEACE BE STILL
Why am I fighting to hold onto “me”?
Am I so defined by this identity?
That I need to prove I am my own
Person with thoughts that are seldom shown?
Who really cares what I think anyway…
Do I just need a place for my thoughts to stay?
If they’re not from God then why do I care
If they’re expressed, or should I dare
Say something to someone I shouldn’t have said
Just to get a thought out of my head?
If I can’t get myself to submit
To my own spirit so that I can quit
Battling my flesh to be free…
Then how will I ever get rid of me??
There is Godly order to how we should live
A “first” sacrifice that we should give
It is our own flesh that we must kill
Lest we be constantly fighting our will.
A spirit that grows weary, a flesh that’s in pain
Neither one winning, yet both playing the game.
A rising up of the flesh that should be dead,
A fight against pride within your own head.
In order to say “PEACE BE STILL”
There is a person that you must kill…
It’s the part of you, you “think” that you know
That God needs you to kill so that you can grow.
