That moment came for me as I sat upon a wooden camp bench this past weekend. I took a look at the realities that my daily choices have brought upon my life and to be honest, there’s very little that I recognize. In a generation of self-help books I haven’t been very helpful to myself at all. If anything, I’m my greatest hinderance. Sitting there a song began to play that has spoken to my heart and stirred me to action since.
A thousand times I’ve failed
Still Your mercy remains And should I stumble again
I’m caught in Your grace
Your light will shine when all else fades
Your glory goes beyond all fame
In my heart and my soul
Lord I give You control
Consume me from the inside out,
Lord, let justice and praise
Become my embrace
To love you from the inside out.
Your will above all else
My purpose remains
The art of losing myself
In bringing You praise
And the cry of my heart
Is to bring You praise
From the inside out
Lord my soul cries out.
I pray that everytime I look back to see where I’ve been I will know exactly how I’ve gotten to that point in life. It’s solely by the Lord.
