What is God’s will for me today,
What would He have me do…say;
I could run on…ahead of Him,
Do my will…chase after every whim.
Free as a bird…that’s what I am,
But experience has shown;
That when I try to please myself,
I walk this path…alone.
Consequences always follow,
For what I sow…I reap;
Sometimes wise choices…granted,
Sometimes things that make me weep.
Many years ago I tired,
Of my will and my own way;
From that time…onward,
I began to listen to what He did say.
Start the day right,
Each and every day;
Be sure to check with Him,
Listen…then do, whatever He does say.
The outcome will be awesome,
Tremendous in all ways;
Walking with the King of Glory,
Close to Him…don’t stray.
There’s purpose…real meaning,
In our lives…this way;
Outcome always assured,
When we please our Father…every day.
“Well done”…is our reward,
For those words we long to hear;
Hear them, we surely will,
Doing His will…there’s nothing we need fear.
Just to walk with Him…talk with Him,
And, to listen also…always;
So one with Him…all our days.
The outcome is amazing,
A thing of joy…our lives;
No longer things to please “us”,
An end to all our strife.
He leads us in ways unheard of,
To the natural…carnal man;
Very soon…we begin to see,
His ways are best…His plans.
He opens our hearts,
Our eyes now can see;
The many needs around us,
Go far beyond “me”.
He gives us ears to hear,
That still, small voice within;
And, to hear the cries around us,
We have the opportunity,
To be His hand extended;
Reaching out to others,
This is what our God intended.
To help those who walk in darkness,
A Light…they need to see;
Let’s be that Light for others,
Not ourselves…but our LORD to see.
His will…working in our lives,
Yet, not “us”…but Christ within;
Let Christ live through us,
His Eternal work begin!
