when I’m feeling overwhelmed
and my walls are closing in
that’s when I clearly see
what I’ve done again,
I’m trying too hard to do it on my own
forgetting all my strength
comes from you alone
Help me not to try so hard-but to trust You more
Help me have the faith to see without my eyes
and to trust in You with all my heart
help me not to try so hard-but to trust you more
trust you more
letting go of everything
everything but You
all that matters in my life
is following Your truth
Your ways are higher than my own
I put You on the throne
all the days of my life
I seek Your will alone
I was recently inspired to write this song- Trust You More. This past summer, our youth pastor preached a message that really touched my heart. He said “help me not to try so hard, but to trust You more.” This line really hit home for me because I am a people pleaser, a peacemaker, and I always want things fixed RIGHT NOW!
But the more I seek Him, the more I see His hands at work in the little details of life… always working for His greater purpose and His glory. It is so hard to wait on His perfect timing for circumstances and situations to change, but His way is best- and He is always right on time. God has used this line to minister to me MANY times over the last few months, and He has saved me from my own hands many times.
Help me not to try so hard, but to trust You more!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
