HAPPY SABBATH + In Dependence! Independence! In Dependence!










I Was Born In A Country Independent!
I Grew Up Independent In A Country Independent!
I Was Raised To Become A Person Independent
BUT ...
In Time ...
I Arrived At The Cross Road
Which Put Me At Odds With
The True And Living Holy Eternal God!

I Was Free!
I Could Be
What Ever I Wanted
Thought
OR
Felt I Could
Should Be!

I Didn't Need Anybody
For
I Could Be Anybody
Even If I Just Wanted To Be 
Downright Upright
OR
Uptight
Always In A Fight
OR
Trolling The Night
AND
Doing God A Despite!
I Was Independent!

I Was Being Me!

UNTIL THAT DAY ...

Came A-dawning
When Self And Soul Savior
Had A Home Truth Talking
AND
I Was Left With The Realization That
Independence Was Misspelled
That It Was In Need Of Some Room
AND
It Was In That Insight
That My Life Really Took Flight!

I Found Out That I Was
In Dependence On God
To Be Able To Reject
Dependence On Life's Frauds
Sent To Injure Me
By The Grand Fraud!

I Found That For
Food
Shelter
Clothing
Peace
Rest
Hope
Help
Love
AND
Blessings
That Really Stand Against
Stresses And Tests
I Had To
In Faith
Sit
Stand
Walk
Run
Go
AND
Come
AND
I HAD To Do It All
Aka Live 
In FULL Dependence
Upon Him
Who Makes My Life Clock
Tick Tock And Run!

I Learnt That
Independence
As Spelled
Shopped Around
AND
Sold
By Educated Man
To Vex And Perplex
The Desiring To Live Righteous Soul
Is Indeed A Hoax
From The Throne
Of Him Who Specializes
In Making Men Go For Broke
By Telling Them:

"Do What You Will
AND
What E'er You Want!
You Don't Need God
To Keep You In A Yoke!
You Are Free!
Come Play With Me!
He Doesn't Want You To Have Fun!
You Don't Need No Healing From The Burden Bearing Buddy!
He Wants Your Will
So That He Can Direct Your Way!
He Wants To Make You Do Exactly What He In His Goody Book Says
For He Wants To Make You
Man Born Free
A Willingly Dependent On Him Slave!"

The Rhetoric Sounded Really Good
BUT ...
On The Best Authority
I Now Stood
After Having Acquired
The Expensive Independence Tee Shirt
AND
Some Almost Life-Taking Scars!

My Song?

No Longer
"Born Free!"

I Am Now Happily Singing:

"Only To Be
What God Wants Me To Be!"

AND ...

I Am Learning To Truly Lean
On Him Who Is Faithful
AND
Merciful
Offering Free Grace
Undying Love
AND
The Guiding
Chiding
Teaching
AND
Comfort Of The Holy Spirit
AND
The Protection
AND
Direction Of Holy Angels Excelling In Strength
Now
AND
In The Great Day
An Eternal Home
In A Glorified Immortal Body
Near Almighty God's Throne!

Truly
It Is In Utmost Dependence
That
I Wait On Him
Who Lovingly
Causes Me To Breathe!


Are You
In Dependence
On Jesus Christ?
