Here's my heart, Lord

I was driving home last night listening to the Passion Let the Future Begin CD after leaving church taking care of a few things. I was just praying and thanking God for my life.

Reminding me this weekend who I am, forgiven, loved, chosen, and free.

Sometimes people try to convince us that we are not those things.

Sometimes the enemy sends in his minions to try to convince us that we are who we used to be, that we are bound by our sin, he does a lot of things to distract us from our calling. It happens to others, and surely it happens to me.

All day I listened to the Passion Let the Future Begin CD and thought “this song is a reflection of my life, these are the words my heart longs to sing” and then a different song would come on… same thing. Let me just say, I now own the CD and it is in my itunes library. I am sure I will end up at some point giving someone my CD. (Sam, we will probably listen to it over and over on the way to Northport… LOL).

After an amazing party on Sunday with almost 700 kids running around our church, about 250 new kids, around 200 kids who gave their lives to Christ, I can’t help but be excited about where God has me. When I peeked from behind that curtain and thought “I wonder if all those kids are going to fit in the venue, this is a good problem to have! Praise God!!!” Sometimes there are moments when I wonder if where I am is where He wants me or if my life is bringing glory to Him and then I get a post card or a kid calls or tells me they love me… I just know… and I’m thankful!

I don’t know what is ahead, I can only pray that God continues to grow in me, and that He uses my life to lead others to Him, to be a light in the dark, He can have my whole life. It all. Going over my goals yesterday, I’m excited about what my life will look like in a year. I know that for the most part we don’t end up where we’d like to be without a map or guide. I know it’s hard work, and it’s a decision process every day, sometimes minute, second, or heart beat, but it’s always a decision to move forward, and for me that means moving towards Him. I know that God has great plans and I’ve prayed about my goals and where God wants me and what He wants me to do to get where He wants me, so I’ve written them down. (May He give you the desire of your heart and make your plans succeed ~Psalm 20:4)

So here’s one of the songs that really resonated in my heart last night. Thank You Jesus for loving me. You can have my life, You seem to know what to do with it better much than I do…

Thank You for always making me feel like I’m Your favorite.



Here's my heart Lord,

Speak what is true

‘Cause I am found, I am Yours
I am loved, I'm made pure
I have life, I can breathe
I am healed, I am free

(Chorus)

Here's my heart Lord,
Here's my heart Lord
Here's my heart Lord,
Speak what is true

‘Cause I am found, I am Yours
I am loved, I'm made pure
I have life, I can breathe
I am healed, I am free

‘Cause You are strong, You are sure
You are life, You endure
You are good, always true
You are light breaking through

(Chorus)

Here's my heart Lord,
Here's my heart Lord
Here's my heart Lord,
Speak what is true

Here's my life Lord,
Here's my life Lord
Here's my life Lord,
Speak what is true
Speak what is true
Speak what is true

I am found, I am Yours
I am loved, I'm made pure
I have life, I can breathe
I am healed, I am free

‘Cause You are strong, You are sure
You are life, You endure
You are good, always true
You are light breaking through

You are more than enough
You are here, You are love
You are hope, You are grace
You're all I have, You're everything

(Chorus)

Here's my heart Lord,
Here's my heart Lord
Here's my heart Lord,
Speak what is true

Here's my life Lord,
Here's my life Lord
Here's my life Lord,
Speak what is true
Speak what is true
Speak what is true
