Going through the motions… I have been here so many times. I have been through many seasons of feeling so completely connected to God, and then there are other times when I feel nothing… I wrote this song a while back when I was praying for God to show up and fix a problem, and I felt like I was doing everything I could do, and I was really, really frustrated.
Just when I think I’ve given all, You show me just how short I fall… Every moment I surrender…
About the time I thought I couldn’t do any more, I realized that I needed to completely surrender it to God. Even though I was praying relentlessly, I was not trusting that He would take care of it in His time. I wanted Him to tell me to do something… I know now that all He wanted me to do is to trust Him and lay my burdens at His feet…. and wait…
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Make Me Yours
I’m doing all the things that I know to do
I’m praying every day-
I need You to be more than just the written Word
Let it live inside my heart- make me Yours.
Awaken my passion- light this spark.
Show me I’m not alone
Won’t You melt this heart of stone?
Fill my life again and make me Yours.
Strengthen me for each new day
Lord, show me Your perfect way
Fill my life again and make me yours.
Draw me closer to You
through the storms of life.
I lay them at Your feet
Everything I have I give to You
Use this, Lord,
Make me new.
Just when I think I’ve given all
You show me just how short I fall
Every moment I surrender to You
