Here I am

All my intentions

All my obsessions

I want to lay them all down

In Your hands

Only Your love is vital

Though I'm not entitled

Still You call me Your child

God You don't need me

But somehow You want me

Oh how You love me

Somehow that frees me

To take my hands off of my life

And the way it should go

God You don't need me

But somehow You want me

Oh how You love me

Somehow that frees me

To open my hands up

And give You control

I give You control

I've had plans

Shattered and broken

Things I have hoped in

Fall through my hands

You have plans

To redeem and restore me

You're behind and before me

Oh help me believe

God You don't need me

But somehow You want me

Oh how You love me

Somehow that frees me

To take my hands off of my life

And the way it should go, oh

God You don't need me

But somehow You want me

Oh how You love me

Somehow that frees me

To open my hands up

And give You control

Oh You want me

Somehow You want me

The King of Heaven wants me

So this world has lost its grip on me

God You don't need me

Oh how You love me

But somehow You want me

Oh how You love me

Somehow that frees me

To open my hands up

And give You control

I give You control

Oh, give You control

Oh I want to give You control

I give You control

Oh You want me

Somehow You want me

The King of Heaven wants me

So this world has lost its grip on me

1 Thessalonians 2:8 8so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.

Philemon 1:6 and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ.

1 Peter 3:15-16 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.

Luke 12:12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.”


THOUGHTS:

GOD DOESN’T NEED US …. HE GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN BRINGING ABOUT HIS WILL AND PLANS.


SOMETIMES WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE HAVE DONE UNTIL MUCH LATER.


SOMETIMES THE GREATEST LESSONS COME OUT OF OUR GREATEST FAILURES.


SOMETIMES WE HAVE THE STRENGTH TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND THE IMMEDIATE RESULTS DON’T SEEM TO BE GOOD BUT LATER WE REALIZE IT WAS.


SOMETIMES WE KNOW THE RIGHT THING TO DO, CHOSE TO DO THE WRONG THING BECAUSE IT SEEMS EASIER AND HAS LESS RISK AND LATER WE FIND THAT WE WOULD BE BETTER OFF HAD WE DONE WHAT WE KNEW WAS RIGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE.
