Living and Loving in the Land of My Lord

Deuteronomy 30:20
by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for [a]this is your life and the length of your days, [b]that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”

I try to show my love for You Jesus, though I know most times I fail
But You are always there for me, to put the wind back in my sails
When worry threatens and fear takes hold You speak softly to my soul
And remind me that Your holding me and You’ll never let me go
So even when times are tough, the trials  long and my body aches with pain
I still believe in You and my love for You remains
I could take another road, but it would mean, I would be leaving You behind
I would rather keep trying to obey your word, so its power can transform my mind
I thank You for your patience when I argue, or I am afraid to do Your will
But I know you grace abounds and covers me till I finally climb that hill
Since meeting You life has never been dull, though it looks crazy to outsiders looking in
But there are pleasant days to sing Your praise while Your peace is ushered in
I try to surrender all I have to You, but those steps I’m still learning
I desperately want to be used by You and I pray You give me, a mind that is discerning
Empty me of my desires and fill me up with Yours, so I can be your hands
So I can introduce You to others ,who have not known You, and all that You have planned
It’s my hope that one day my life would honour You and allow others to see Your glory
And when my life is over, there will be this wonderful tapestry of my story
Woven in the hearts of others, that were touch by You, through me

Of how Your love light led me to others, to kindle sparks of gospel glee
Or maybe just to plant a seed while I was visiting for tea
And when my lengths of days are over and I hear the trumpet call it will be my turn to depart
I pray that all that knew me would say she surely loved the Lord with all her heart
