grab my hand;
i feel as though i can’t find Yours.
i want to fully know what it is to love. to love You. to love people.
i want to fully know what it is to follow. to follow Your desires and not mine.
i want to fully know what it is to listen. to be open to Your word and spirit.
i want to fully know what it is to trust. to destroy my doubt.
i want to fully know what it is to break out. to realize that i can’t be silent.
i am Yours.
i pray i’d be one that shines so bright;
don’t let me blend into this endless night.
yearning and burning. this is me.
“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” -Colossians 4:2-6
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Come near to God and he will come near to you. ” -James 4:7-8
“You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.” -James 5:8
“1Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. 19This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence 20whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.
21Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God 22and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him. 23And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 24Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us. ” -1 John 3:18-24
