I am more than who my mind says I am…
I am more than what my emotions feel…
A fool’s water I will not drink
To a useless vessel I refuse to shrink.
My heart is not ashamed of its Maker
I will be among the world’s shakers
I speak to myself
My secret song, exalt thou the name of the Most High
Soul of mine, seek thou God daily
Heart and strength, worship thou the living God
Evil flee from me, to the west and to the north
Oh God, discharge your angels over me
Walk through the dry places and rain your joy and presence
Slay an evil prey, cause my lips to say-
“God is watching my back”
Restore the joy of loving, serving and living
Cause my eyes to see the mountains, not just the stone in front of me.
Let a bird sing a new song of melodious praise to me,
Let an ant show the works of his persistent hands,
Let a crashing wave meet the earth with thunderous shouts!
For they all live, but they live for you Lord.
My wicked heart, my selfish mind, the sorrowful soul
Knows it was made in Your image
…pause to acknowledge that You are God.
Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; - Eph 5:19
