We sang these words today at church and they hit me hard:
Lead me to the cross
Where Your love poured out
Bring me to my knees
Lord I lay me down
Rid me of myself
I belong to You
Lead me, lead me to the cross
As long as I’m filling my schedule, my heart, my hours with ME, ME, ME – I am just that, full of myself.
And let’s just admit that no one likes hanging around with a self-centered person. Even when that person is YOU.
Tonight my heart is longing to lay me down and rid me of myself.
I want to be emptied so that He can fill me and overflow in everything I do, everything I say and everywhere I go.
Savior I come
Quiet my soul remember
Where Your blood was spilled
For my ransom
Everything I once held dear
I count it all as loss
Those things I once held dear – help me see how they are nothing compared to You. Quiet my soul. Help me remember.
