CAN'T SAVE MYSELF ?

Help! Helpp!! Helppp!!!
I am drowning,
I am sinking,
I don’t seem to know how to get out of this situation.

I tried pulling myself out,
But I keep plunging in, deeper and deeper.
I looked around for help, but all I could see was others in my situation.
How did I get here?

Last I checked, I was trying to live by the rules,
Trying to avoid this situation that I am in.
I began to draft formulas and plans on how to get myself out of this situation.

While still struggling, I heard this mild laughter behind me,
I turned, and I saw this huge guy, shining and glimmering.
He had a name tag with ‘MESSIAH’ inscribed on it.
He began to wade into my situation, gliding smoothly.

I shouted “NOOOOO, don’t do that, you wouldn’t be able to get out”
He said He doesn’t care,
He said to me “why bother trying to help yourself out of this situation?
You know that it would only worsen the situation.”
He said, “Let me carry you instead,
I would keep you from falling.”

I stretched out my hand to Him, and He lifted me on His shoulders, quite easily.
Till today, I am still there, seated on His shoulder, high and mighty.
Just like He said, He has kept me from falling thus far,
Preserving my position in Him.
Never letting go.

God, the Master, The Holy of Israel, has this solemn counsel: "Your salvation requires you to turn back to me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves. Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me - The very thing you've been unwilling to do.
