ENTRUSTED TO GOD

I cannot fathom the depth of Your love for me
You’ve always been here, watching over me
You have a plan for me
Even though I’m not sure what it is

Lord, lead me
I am ready to surrender all of myself
Even though I’m weak to follow through
And vulnerable to blows from the enemy
But You strengthen me through Your Word
And Your Spirit dwelling within me

Show me Lord where You want me to serve
Open my eyes to those in need
Let me not discriminate
Bury my arrogance that surfaces at times
A blessing abodes in the humble soul
Help me revamp my priorities
Give me the gift to think first of others
And to not shy away
Help me grow wings as a butterfly
To flutter from person to person
Engaging their beauty
To dance with Your heart
I’ll speak of Jesus’ love
Our only sanctuary when the storm blows in

Hearts connected to Jesus cannot deceive
But speak truth to all
The truth that saves
Let me speak truth
As part of my misssion

LORD OF MY LIFE

Lord, I want to do Your work
But who am I
A sinner, a procrastinator
A halfhearted Christian
One who wants to pick and choose
Her assignments
Who judges the importance
Of the mission
Whose participation hinges
On the chances of success

Lord, let me see
Through Your eyes
A role You’ve planned for me
Before time began
An assignment guided only by Your hand
Requiring no special talent
Asking only faith in Your workings
Abandonment of self

I fold my hands in prayer
Humbling my heart
That I might be
Worthy to serve You
Help me participate
Believing in Your grand design
Not known fully to me now
But to be revealed
After I’ve made You Lord
Of my life
Have fought the good fight
And stand before You
On that sea of glass
In eternity
With You
My Lord and Savior
