Some days I feel on top of things and everyone’s content,
But then come days just like today—composure’s quickly spent.
Dear heavenly Father,
Please show me what You want me to do
And strengthen me to do it with all my heart.
Teach me to discern when I ought to say no,
Then give grace for the one
And courage for the other.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
I have tasted of the world’s wine,
And yet I thirst;
I have gorged myself on earth’s pleasures,
And yet I hunger.
I thirst for You, my God.
I hunger for the Bread of Life.
Soft wind stirs the trees
makes the branches bend and bow
in holy reverence
Our Father, who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
I’ve failed again. Lord, please forgive.
I’m dying, yet I want to live.
Break my heart, dear Lord, for that which Your heart breaks.
Help me comprehend the gravity of sin,
That I never lose the sight of what it takes
When, unguarded, I allow the wrong to win.
(to the tune of “So Send I You”)
Lord, here am I to labor unrewarded,
To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown,
Unknown, unloved by all but my dear children,
Lord, here am I to teach my young at home.
