I Give My Life To You

These lyrics have become one of my deepest prayers because there was a time when I wanted God to use me for His Kingdom. To raise me, so that I would be released in His perfect timing. Yet, we are not some tool that God wants to use, but a chosen son or daughter

This is what my Senior Pastor has talked about recently. Jo put it so well, when she said, that she doesn’t want her children to grow up to bring glory to her name, but that they would grow up in a relationship with her, and that they would walk through life together – this, she described, is the same for God

He doesn’t want us to solely live to glorify His name – that becomes performance-based faith. But, in walking with Him, we build a deep relationship with our heavenly Father, that the fruit of this, is what we are seen, and known for

Friends, this prayer hasn’t changed at all for me. I gave my life to God because in doing so, I follow Him. I learn from Him. I seek Him. I love Him

It’s His will, not my own – which means I choose love over hate. Freedom over chains. Faith over fear

I want to lose my life to God, because God’s way for me is so much more than I could ever comprehend.

Over the years, He has given me confidence, boldness and joy. I have learnt to laugh freely, to dance in the rain, to feel the sand beneath my feet, and to hear the roar of the waterfalls

My point is, that when we try to be in control of life, it becomes controlled, boring even, and strained. Yet, Jesus died to set us free, and to have fun with God, and each other

Giving my life to God is how I learnt to love my husband deeply. To love my child unconditionally, and love my friends without expectation. I give my life freely to God, because that is how I found true freedom

My prayer today, as always, is that all of God’s children are set free from their invisible chains

”Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live.” Galatians‬ ‭1:4‬
