Where is the passion, the zeal for more of your presence Lord?
When I sit before You, my mind wonders,
When I say to myself, “I will spend time with my God”
I easily forget until it is too late.
I feel lifeless when I come to you,
There is a lack of vigor and vitality.
Wake me up Lord! Shake off the apathy and the misery O God!
Renew a steadfast Spirit within me,
And give me a hope and future.
I eagerly say ‘Yes’ to what the Spirit says,
But my actions seem to suggest otherwise.
Why can I not do what I know should be done?
I am weak Lord,
Yet it is in my deficiencies that I cling to You,
In my frailties, your light will shine through,
And you will get the glory through my struggles and my shortcomings.
I seem to take on too much at once,
Realizing how much good I can do in this time,
But what have you called me to do?
No wonder I get easily overwhelmed and discouraged!
While there is so much I can accomplish,
There is the timing for everything.
Give me understanding and the ability to fulfill the tasks in front of me.
Why is it that I cannot overcome that what plagues me?
Show me how to be a man after your own heart,
Like David, I am full of sin, but I am yours
You are My Savior Jesus, my refuge when I am weak.
I do not understand why I do what I do,
But I have the Holy Spirit to help me.
Teach me your ways so I will walk in Your truth,
You are my guide and the One who has sustained me so far.
You will not let me down, even if I fail
For you are with me and will not ever leave me.
When I think of
my future, I am struck with uncertainty.
I have little desire to work towards that what is unknown,
Perhaps I am reliving my insecurities,
I am trying to plan that what has not been revealed,
Yet in my heart I want to be faithful to You,
To live out the promises that You have spoken to Me.
I need more of your presence so I do not give into fear,
Remind me of how you see me,
And not what I think in moments of doubt and discouragement,
For I do not want to listen to the enemy’s lies,
And the thoughts that play over and over in my head,
You have shown me who I am in your sight,
I am holy, I am useful, I am well-loved
Thank you for taking me out of the pit and setting me on a rock higher than I
For it is your
foundation that my soul can rest upon and be secure.
