in everything

Liner notes from our CD, Draw Near:

In college I was introduced to the JOY principle:  serve Jesus first, Others next, and Yourself last.  But I’ve been wondering if there’s a better way to think about life—a better way to do life—by allowing Jesus to be a part of everything all day long, instead of leaving Him in my devotional time at the beginning of the day.

Written for Becca, a kindred spirit in the quest for complete surrender, on her birthday.

in everything

in everything i am

and every breath i take

in everything i do

and every word i say

.

everywhere i go

every single day

in everyone i see

and every prayer i pray

.

be the center of it all

let me hear Your gentle call

to give myself

completely

fall down before You

.

i wonder at Your love

that beckons me to stay

in spite of what i’ve done

in going my own way

.

You know my wandering heart

is longing to obey

but there’s no good in me

so at Your feet i lay

.

be the center of it all

let me hear Your gentle call

to give myself

completely

fall down before You
