ALL of you Lord wants ALL of me
You are not in want of me only in my lost dreams
You are not in want of me only when my heart is riddled with confliction
You are not in want of me only with the countless times my soul is not at peace, and I find no rest
You are in want of me for songs of praise from the most trivial of a moment to the most agonizing of breaths, you want ALL of me
You are in want of ALL of me lifting my hands in awe, and thanksgiving for even if when my lot is not what I thought or had hoped it to be, sing
You are in want of ALL of me, death to my own self that I can be filled with you, and then you can pour yourself in me
You are in want of ALL of me being child like in my prayer, bringing forth things I would not think you care of
You are in want of ALL of me understanding that I am not of my own, you are my dwelling place. Seeking your face
You are not in want of just a partial cup of me, you want my cup to overflow with YOU…filled to the brim. Seeping from its essence YOU!
I am reminded of this today, as I step out in faith praying for a family member with mental illness (with no hope for life), friends with Covid, mine and my husband’s soon move, my surgery fast approaching, and the weather so cold I kind of loathe. I get to bring it all to you, lay it down at your feet. Find rest at the cross, get lost in your presence! Prayer, it takes me to the throne room with you
Lord take ALL of me!!
Psalm 73:6 My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever
