The Subtle Pride Of Our Generation by pressplay411(m): 7:42pm On Feb 12
The Pride Of Our Generation is Perfectly Captured and Exemplified in Frank Sinatra.
Listen to the song and study the lyrics.

My Way
Frank Sinatra

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I've traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way
Regrets, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way
I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside
I find it all, all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh no, no, not me
I did it my way
For what is man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way
And did it my way

We have been subtly taught to be Self-dependent and Self-reliant instead of depending on God. So we do things our own way, not God's way.
At the end of it all, we take the glory.
Not knowing it was still God all along doing it all out of His infinite and selfless Loving Kindness. Until ultimately He withdraws from us.

And saying, “Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men with the same nature as you, and preach to you that you should turn from these useless things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them, who in bygone generations allowed all nations to walk in their own ways. Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.” Acts 14:15-17

The tricky part is this;
God wants to accomplish all His Good and Great Works on Earth and He created us to do just that. So truly, it seems as if it is us accomplishing these but it is God working through us.
Unfortunately, when we choose not to allow God use us to accomplish His works, we automatically are accomplishing the works of the devil.
Always think about this before you choose to do things your own way.
Be Humble.
Submit all to God. Acknowledge Him in all Your Ways.
Be Sensitive to hear, to know, to obey and to do God's Will.
Follow God's Way.
The Way of Faith in Christ Jesus.
It is the Only way that leads to Salvation and True Prosperity of the Spirit, Soul and Body, individually, nationally and globally.
God help us all.
