Like the song, we need to give everything to Him. Not just our words and actions, but our hopes, dreams, reputations, skills, really- everything but most of all our willingness to do what He wants us to do, even if we think we can’t do it. Have you ever noticed though, that no matter how often you say you give it all to Him, that you are still holding part of you back? I have, and I wonder why that is. Is it selfishness, lack of commitment, fear, pride, lack of knowledge, or am I simply expecting more of me than what the Lord expects? That has been my contemplation of late.
One thing I do know, and this is from another part of the song…
You are the Lord of all I am
And, I'll never be the same again
Twenty some years ago when Jesus became the Lord of my life, I changed- for the better. It has been a long and often treacherous journey so far, but the journey from who I was to who I am today has been astounding. Life with the Lord is never boring. He is here waiting for me every morning and He continues to work in my life. He doesn’t mind when I question things, but leads me on His path (Pr. 3:5,6) one step at a time. (2Cor. ; Pr. 16:9) I am aiming to give my life completely to Him, from His point of view, and so I will follow Him (John ) on the path He has laid before me trusting that His light (Ps. 119:105) will guide me along the way.
and I will continue to be transformed…
