I Give Myself Away…

Thank you William McDowell for sharing such an amazing perspective…now it’s up to me  to live it out…

I woke up today with this song in my head…actually, it’s been simmering on the back burner of my mind since last Sunday’s service…I know it’s what God wants from me… I know it won’t be until I’m completely out of my comfort zone…all the structure I have a tendency to cling to…is removed…

Praise God! To move towards a place of total surrender…a place I’ve wanted to be – I just wasn’t there yet…I’m not confident I’m there now, but I’m definitely past just wanting it, I have a hunger for it now – to completely put my life – my hopes – my dreams – my trust – in Him!

I know it’s not a magic pill…or a checklist…it’s dying daily to my idea of what life is supposed to look like and stepping out of the way so He can use me

I’m not a control freak…well, perhaps I am – I’ve always been a gal who loves a plan – it’s time to let Him do His job and give up trying to do it all myself.

I Give Myself Away

Lyrics

Chorus:
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me

Verse 1:
Here I am
Here I stand
Lord, my life is in your hands
Lord, I’m longing to see
Your desires revealed in me
I give myself away

Verse 2:
Take my heart
Take my life
As a living sacrifice
All my dreams, all my plans
Lord I place them in your hands

Chorus:
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me

Chorus:
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me

Bridge(7X):
I am not my own
To you I belong
I give myself, I give myself to You
Chorus:
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
