Let my passion for life be restored, tasting joy in every breakthrough you bring to me. Hold me close to you with a willing spirit that obeys whatever you say.
… Lord God, unlock my heart, unlock my lips, and I will overcome with my joyous praise!
For the source of your pleasure is not in my performance or the sacrifices I might offer to you. The fountain of your pleasure is found in the sacrifice of my shattered heart before you. You will not despise my tenderness as I humbly bow down at your feet. (Psa 51:12, 15-17)
This reminds me of the beautiful Keith Green song: “If I’d only trusted you…”
Well, I thought I depended upon you
At least that used to be what was happening with me
In those times of our first sweet communion
Nothing got in the way, I heard your voice everyday
When I first trusted you, gave my life to you
When I trusted you
Well, there’s something that needs to be cleared up
I feel so sorry inside, that my first love has died
Cause I’ve tried in my own strength to follow
When I’ve known all along, I just couldn’t go wrong
If I’d only trusted you, give my life to you
If I’d trusted you. ❤️
