Your Will

Poetry

Open my ears to hear

So that I would do things differently

Than I’ve done before

Open my eyes to see

So that I’d walk in obedience

When You open the door

Leaning

Poetry

Each day I’m reminded

Although I appear clean

The inside battle continues

So into my Savior I lean

John 10:27-28

27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.

Humility

Poetry

I am frozen by Your love

Unable to speak or move

When my heart sees

The complexity and truth of You

 

And when I ask You

How it is I’m able to see

You say it’s all my weaknesses

That opened the door for me

 

If I was strong and proud

If I had it all together

I would go about life on my own

And wouldn’t need my Savior

 

But I’m in a weak frame  

And while my past He won’t condone

He still lovingly responds

He who is without sin, throw the first stone

 

1 Corinthians 1:27

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

John 8:7

When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.”

Matthew 13:15-16

15 …and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn, and I would heal them.’ 16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear… 

 

Turn

Poetry

You do offer strength

And Your call is strong

You’ve asked me to choose

Right over wrong

But what if I don’t

What if I go the wrong way

Would you love me the same

Would I stay in Your grace

Could I love You from there

Would my vision be strained

Would You still hear my prayers

Or would everything change?
2 Chronicles 7:14-15

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place.
Corinthians 3:16

But whenever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
