Here Am I
Lord, I don’t know where You may lead me today. I just know that I want to follow. I am not certain of whom You will place in my path today. I just know that I want to show them Your love. I am not confident in my ability to complete Your purpose through me today. I just know that I am confident in Yours to complete it through me. Here am I, send me.
Father, I woke up thinking it is just any other day. I want to realize that this is truly the day that You have made, and that I may not have another. I woke up with routine as my companion. I want to take hold of the life that is truly life, and see that it is something for which routine cannot plan. I woke up in my flesh again. I want to watch each decision made leave my flesh lying helpless on Gethsemane’s floor. Here am I, send me.
My God, I have a tendency to gravitate to my needs first. I want to deny myself, take up the cross and follow You. I have a tendency to get caught up in the demands of the day. I want to get caught up in Your Presence, flowing in Your river of life. I have a tendency to speed up when I am supposed to be still. I want to learn how to wait upon You, finding my strength renewed in the waiting. Here am I, send me.
My King, I choose to put on the garments You have given me. I dare to approach Your throne of grace today. Though I cannot belong in such a holy atmosphere, You make me belong with You. May the coal be placed on my lips, while Your blood is covering my soul—please do whatever it takes to let me come closer. And if I perish, I perish. Here am I, send me.
