I lift my life up

This song has been weighing on my heart for quite some time now.

The first time I heard it, it was almost like I had been slapped in my face. Steamy tears were streaking down my cheeks and I just knew that it was something I really needed at that very moment. Almost like He was speaking right through me.

I've done a lot of "trying to control" different situations in my day. Still do. Thinking my way, is the best way. Or worrying constantly about where the future will take us and the "what ifs" that may occur.

And then I wonder why I can't carry that type of weight on my own. It's because I'm not supposed to. So I'm learning to give away my control of thinking I know what's best. Trying, being the key word.  Truth is, it's one of the hardest things I have ever tried to do. But I'm learning….and that's all I can ask for.

Here are a little bit of the lyrics that hit me right in the soul….


You brought me this far, so why should I question you now?
You have provided, so why would I start to doubt?
I've never been stranded, abandoned, or left here to fight alone.
Hope your leaving me home, so I'm giving you control.

I lift, my life, lift my life up.
I give it all in surrender.
I lift my heart, lift my heart up.
You can have it forever.

All my dreams, all my plans
Lord I leave it in your hands.

I lift, my life, lift my life up
Have your way in me.
Have your way in me.

Happy Sunday everybody!

Wow, the words to that song are powerful. I love when I make a connection to a song, and I feel like it's straight from God right when I need it. I hope you can give the hard things in your life right now to God! One recent major answered prayer for me reminded me he can do anything - hopefully you'll see some answered prayers too.
