Sarcastic Introflection, a.k.a. "Rest + Receive"

Rest and receive?
Far too easy!
What must I do
to prove worth to You?

Give up all friends?
Confess all my sins?
(I did it that way
only yesterday...)

Deny taking food?
Never a bad mood?
Tell me what I must do
to prove love that's true!

Rest and receive?
Trust and believe?
I don't think I can
let You just take my hand.

I'm sorry, dear God,
but like it or not,
I'll continue to "do"
so I'll know I've pleased You.

Note: This isn't actually my decision for the day, oh no! But I recognize that it is my mindset most times. Just resting and receiving is too easy... I've gotta DO something!
