Time with God
I am listening to you, Lord Jesus
listening only to you.
You are my God, my inspiration
You give a Heavenly view.
I give up my rights, my plans and ideas
You are free to do
To change and renew
For a price my life was bought.
This day is all yours - I had a big list
Do as you will - I'll not insist.
The interruptions - and when forced to Plan C,
Are all of you, when I'm yielded to Thee.
So take my life and let it be
Submitted, dependent, with eyes to see
You're my all, my Saviour and Lord.
So when life goes wrong
You do keep me strong.
Your peace is as real as the day.
Your love is worth telling and your
Gives guidance, and comforts stay
For love knows no bounds,
When the enemy's around
I can feast on you.
Your table has all that I need.
Your Word has a word for all of life's woes
For the joys and sorrows we meet.
When to Jesus we come, we have power to become
As we learn at the Saviour's feet.
He knows all our heart's need and desires
And all that's happened before.
There is much to learn, to sift and discern,
But He promises to be at our side.
But if you're not satisfied, with your walk with the Lord
Maybe it's cos you insist on your own say,
Not trusting God's way
Keeping corners of life to yourself,
For to walk in the light as He is light
No secrets or sins can you hide.
To walk with Him tall - Give Him your all,
And He with you will abide.
