Too Often

Too often I seek me 
and not you
Too many times
You are my solution
but not my Savior
I invite you into my life
instead of walking in yours

I crave your counsel
but not your company
I pursue your pleasure
but ignore your pleading
I hope for happiness
while avoiding holiness

I must become less
and You, O God, 
must become more
