Watching out for Me: I think I might be a control freak...to "let go and let God" is a lot harder than the cliche makes it sound.

You were looking out for me.
I was too
That's where things got stuck
in this glue
This mess I made
And I cannot click
"Edit--undo."

I was trying, vainly,
to maintain mediocrity.
Why didn't I just
ask You
to take care of me?


God, I know You already see
and know everything about me.
So you know
I'm not so good
at letting go of things.
Why do I carry these chains?
Why don't I choose to be free--
free from my own control
and selfishness and vanity.

How much better things would be
If I let You take the reigns
And if I dropped them completely.
