let me be face to face with you
throughout the day,
sharing my thoughts,
baring my heart,
not holding back
vulnerable and open
I need you Lord…
so easy for me to say,
yet difficult to bend my knee and do,
humbling for my pride and independence.
Where I’m on autopilot,
depending on my own strength
please gently remind me of your presence,
that you’re with me,
willing and ready to teach me, train me,
show me, guide me, help me once again,
in better, wiser ways than my own.
Let my heart be open to your instruction,
wrapping around your wisdom and counsel,
inviting your strength and power
leaning on you,
so that I walk in your ways,
and am blessed.
Show me how to talk with you,
partner with you,
do life with you,
and let the distractions melt away,
so that I have dove’s eyes before you.
You and me Lord,
please help me to run this race,
and finish well,
and receive your full inheritance in me.
You are splendid, beautiful, and true,
let my life faithfully reflect your worthiness.
