poor in spirit

i'm listening to a sermon. the primary text is:

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."

essentially, he says that we must realize our brokenness and poor state in light of God, realizing we can do nothing apart from Him.

i don't live like that. i want Jesus alone. i want to constantly cry out to Him to sustain me, to grow me, to stretch me in grace, to draw me to my knees in humility. dangerous? maybe. but what good am i in the kingdom if i don't cry out in dependence like this? how will others see a transformed life if God not doing the transforming?
