Beneath my circumstances
Beyond my dreams
There’s a place in my heart
Only You can reach
On my thoughts and emotions
I will not rely
But Your Word and Your promises
Shall be my guide
Day by day
And breath by breath
I will learn
To find Your rest
What part of You should I write of today?
The way You raise Your hand to stop me when I’m going the wrong way?
Or the blessings You shower down to remind me You love me and are here to stay.
How about the confidence You bestow when everything else is on shaky ground
Or the Hope you instill when no tangible reason to hope can be found
Yes those are all great. But I think there is still another favorite I should proclaim.
When I told You I may never be faithful, You gently grabbed my hand and said “I know” and kept loving me anyway.
2 Timothy 2:13
If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.
You are the only One who will never leave
The only One who loves consistently
The only One who keeps promises
The only One I’ll ever need
Everything else is subject to change.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
I can find little purposes and create a decent life for myself here. I can fill up my time, enjoy meaningful experiences, develop fun-filled social circles and excel in many things. I can dive into a career and pour myself into volunteer opportunities and work toward bettering myself and my community. Only… those things don’t fully satisfy my purpose here unless I’m doing them with You.
I desire to learn Your promises
To believe the things I cannot see
Embrace a life that looks different
Confidently as I walk it with Thee
Securely trusting and following
This path You’ve designed for me.
