I want to change to be like You
That involves giving up my way
Surrendering myself to You
Asking You to forgive me

Also there is fear
What will be the transient cost
The only cost I can conceive
Give me eyes to see eternity and forget cost

Help me take the I out of my requests
Knowing that so many are in need
Use me to cry out for them and rest in You
Your love and care and presence are sure

Thank you for these thoughts
They are important to me
Seeing what the future brings isn’t a must
But doing what You call me to is required

Obedience, grace and mercy are never far from my thoughts
Even as I am disobedient, obedience calls on me
Thank you for this blessing of oughtness
Joy and peace claim me and You Lord love me
