Sometimes I need to…


Sometimes I need to seek Him,
because I’ve hidden Him.
Not that He is lost,
I allowed the clutter of life in,
and so concealed everything within.

He should be my way
He should be my truth
He Should be my life
my only entrance…

Sometimes I need to choose Him,
because I’ve forgotten Him.
Not that He is lost,
I feared to choose life or death,
good and evil, I lost my breath.

Jesus, my way
Jesus, my truth
Jesus, my life
my only access…

Sometimes I need to find Him,
because I’ve been distant from Him.
Not that He is lost,
I’ve pushed Him far away,
and now I’m going astray.

He should be my way
He should be my truth
He Should be my life
my only success…

So says the LORD, Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths where the good way is, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls…
Jeremiah 6:16.

Behold! I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil,
Deuteronomy 30:15.

Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
Psalm 34:14.

Depart from evil and do good; and live forevermore.
Psalm 37:27.

Liberating God,
teach us
how to refuse the evil
and choose the good. Amen.

– Alive Now

GOD, may I no longer be my own but yours. Put me to what you will; rank me with whom you will. Put me to doing; put me to suffering. Let me be employed for you or laid aside for you, exalted for you or brought low for you. Let me be full; let me be empty. Let me have all things; let me have nothing. I freely and heartily yield all things to your pleasure and disposal. And now, O glorious and blessed God — Creator, Redeemer, and Inspirer — you are mine, and I am yours. May this promise that I hereby make on earth be ratified in heaven. Amen.
