From Man’s Ways to Real Freedom!

As we discover the power when we say, “I don’t know!”
We tap into the mind set where You, God can show –
Show us Your Will and Your desire for us for each day –
We then get to consider, will we really listen for Your way?

Are we willing to learn to believe greater ways of  ‘faith lived?’
Or settle for life without the power You say You faithfully give?
Give freely as we listen and walk following Your Love way –
While we abide in Your Presence, seek Your face each day!

Seek You, as we repent and lay down all ‘bright thoughts.’
And admit there is much more than agendas we bought!
Bought, repeated, embraced and proceed to claim as ‘me’
Often unaware of Your Power, You know all and can free –
Us from error!

You provide all direction needed to hear from Your heart!
You release every step’s direction to fulfill unique parts!
Parts and plans You knew and assigned for us to discover –
And as We seek Your face and Your wise ways, we recover –
Our pathway!

The path, full of Wisdom and good intention for us to follow –
Listening for Your voice, rather than familiar ways we wallow!
Wallow and defend what is comfortable from habitual ways!
God, forgive us and awaken us to Your intention for our days!

As we learn to hear You outside the data base of our pasts –
Help us sort out Your truth from opinions and ways that last –
Remain, as ‘the way I am,’ till You awaken us to Your voice!
It is then we begin to make Your ‘abundant life,’ our choice!

So, this day I choose You and ask You to draw me to abide –
Near Your heart of Love and Wisdom, knowing You inside –
Inside; not far away and uninterested in concerns I have!
You said to take every thought captive, for You spread salve – 
On needed healing!

Healing from patterns relying on agendas ‘not of You!’
Forgiveness for all ways ‘in error’ – ways I habitually do!
Do what I know all times I forget to listen for Your voice.
God, merciful One, I once again make Your ways, my choice –
Have Your way, Lord!
