Turn on the TV, scroll through your phone
Billboards and magazines; we believe all we’re shown
Im too young, too old, too skinny, too fat
I don’t have her “this.” I don’t have her “that.”
We compare and compare “Oh, life it’s not fair!”
We chase after something that’s not even there!
Blindly we listen to the lies we are told
But what if we stopped; stopped buying what we’re sold?
Can we breath for a minute? Can we just look around?
And realize what we’re searching for has already been FOUND!
Its time for HIS daughters to open HIS Book
And instead of the mirror this is where we look.
So turn off the TV and put up your phone
Quiet your heart and just get alone
Open your eyes, open your ears
to the one who brings REST and calms all your fears.
Searching, seeking, striving, stirring
Deceived, divided, defeated, DONE
Heavy, hurt, hectic, hiding
Desperation you’ve just begun.
Busy boasting, Busy building
Self-obsessed, sinner, SICK
Guilty, greedy, gluton, grasping
Surrender, please come quick.
In my hands, at last, I’m dead.
But YOU say, “Here’s my life instead.
You will not take it, I’ll lay it down
All you need, in me is found.”
Silenced, safe, steadied, secured
Brand new life has now occurred.
The old has gone. The new has come.
When Father sees me He sees His Son.
Faithful, favored, forever FREE
Free of guilt. Free of me.
Revived, restored, renewed, redeemed
My Jesus, MY king, you're all I need.
I am no expert on any topic. I am writing just to share in my journey of learning to abide in my Maker.
