Wisdom not Folly

Dear Lord

Help me not live my life in folly,

but let my entire life and everything I do,

revolve around you,

just as the earth revolves around the sun.

I don't want to live my life my way,

but your way,

following the plan you designed for me,

when you formed me in my mother's womb.

I don't want just a "spiritual" catagory

in my everday walk,

but I desire my entire self,

and all I do to be centered on You!

Let me always ask the question,

"What pleases You!"

I want to always "check with you"

with every decision I make

every word of utterance from my lips.

Please make my life a living sacrafice...

holy and acceptable to you!"


Your child

I cling to my Lord,
Not understanding His plan,
Why not the truth?
Not a word spoken,
I sit quietly,
Knowing the battle is not mine,
Heart beats sadness,
Heat beats disappointment,
Heat beats pain.
I want to run,
Run into my Abba’s arms,
I want to hide forever,
Between the hems of His robe.
His arms are the safest place,
As I seek His face and not His hand,
Hold me up in the honesty I have spoken,
So the truth would be revealed.
