a new day

{ i went for a morning walk today and this song was on my ipod- thought i'd share the words, they spoke right to my heart.}


Full Attention
{words and music by Jeremy Riddle}

May your voice be louder and
May your voice be clearer
Than all the others, than all the others
And may your face be dearer
And may your words be sweeter
Than all the others, than all the others in my life

Please keep my eyes fixed on you
Please root my heart so deep in you
Keep me abiding, keep me abiding
Keep me abiding that I may yield fruit

And may your presence be truer
And may your presence be nearer
Than all the others, than all the others
And may your light shine brighter
And may your love move deeper
Than all the others, than all the others in my life

Please keep my eyes fixed on you
Please root my heart so deep in you
Keep me abiding, yes, keep me abiding
Keep me abiding that I may yield fruit

Please keep my eyes fixed on you
Please move my heart so deep in you
Keep me asking, keep me asking
Keep me abiding that I, oh that I may yield fruit
Keep me close to you, oh, right next to your heart
Right next to your heart, close to you.


oh Lord, that is my prayer that your voice would be clearer than any others. please help me to keep my eyes fixed on you. i want to keep abiding in you. in the midst of the unknown, i KNOW that you reign. thank you for a new day and for many blessings you so freely give. may i trust more, pray more, love more, give more, obey more, honor you more, speak more about you, serve more, know you more......................

My Bible Study yesterday covered 30 verses all about God's promises to us. In the current unknown, my only refuge is in His promises to me. I am so thankful we serve a faithful God!
