My ego is fighting for attention,
But that’s not the real me;
God did not give me a spirit of timidity,
He did not endow me with self-pity,
Or riddle me with anxiety;
I riddled myself with all of these things.
Why do I always have to focus on myself?
My ego is begging me to—
In the name of Jesus, Holy Spirit,
Break it down and shrivel it up!
If I only allow Him to,
If I only let Him be all of me,
All I need
And nothing less,
Then I could finally be set free.
Free to love, free to give, free to die to my selfish pride,
Free to function normally,
Free at last to be me—
The real me!
The one God’s always meant me to be;
This is my true identity.
Through Jesus Christ
I have access to the spirit of power, love, and a sound mind;
I have access to freedom,
If I only reach out and grab it;
Taste and see that the Lord is good!
Because of the risen Jesus, I have access
To everything I need.
My ego has no power,
And I can finally be
The real me.
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” – 2 Timothy 1:7
