All to You

I wrote this on December 28, 2016.
Jesus Christ was calling, I was saying yes.
On a daily, moment by moment basis.
Yes, Lord. I choose You.

I began walking with the Lord in 2006, just over 11 years ago, and it's been a wild ride. At times I have gotten side-tracked and begun building my own kingdom, stamping it "in Jesus' name". But, He calls out, continually, to leave behind my kingdom and build His.

While my comfort zone seemed safe and easy, I realized what I really wanted, more than anything, was to be dancing the dance with Him, even if it made me dizzy and nauseated. I just want to be with Him. That's all I really want. I want an all in relationship. Totally committed. Not just less of me and more of Him.... but all of Him consuming all of me. He is my Treasure!

All to You

Jesus, I am ready—
To be seen, to be known.
To be emptied, to be exposed.

I'm holding nothing back.
I give it all to You.
I will not take it back,
I give it all to You.

So let Your light flood in, let Your light flood in.
O let Your light flood in, let Your light flood in.

And leave no stone unturned, no door unopened.
Sweep every corner and dust every ledge.
I don't want to hide, I withhold no thing,
I'm giving You my all, not just my very best.

So leave no space
Untouched by grace.

God come like fire
And burn up my dross.
Consume me, Lord, and let me
Count all else as loss.
