BUSY LIFE


BUSY LIFE

While up and busy with my day and goals to be reached but finding that time is just a vapor and some of those goals will go back to the list and sleep till tomorrow.
We get caught up with what we think is important and the Father God has such a gentle way of bringing us back to reality. Not our reality but HIS.
After all it is HIS dreams and HIS desires and HIS vision for our lives that will bring to us contentment and peace. We so often forget that when we struggle for what we THINK is our destiny. And in saying that, nothing need be said further.
There is no struggle in HIM.

Be still, HE will draw you back to what HE beholds when HE turns HIS eyes toward you.

HE so knows how I love music and I have my Christian station going most of the day. It is a gentle breeze that blows across my spirit while I work. Most of the time not really listening but just letting it works it's magic to my soul.
This morning HE did what HE does best....... HE gentle broke my heart in the words of a song.



Empty Me


I've had just enough of the spotlight
When it burns bright
To see how it gets in the blood
And I've tasted my share
Of the sweet life
And the wild ride
And found a little is not quite enough

I know how i can stray
And how fast my heart could change

Empty me
Of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition
And the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me
So i can be
Filled with you

Ive seen just enough of the quick buys
Of the best lies
To know how prodigals can be drawn away

I know how I can stray
And how fast my heart could change
Empty me
Of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition
And the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me
So I can be
Filled with you

Cuz everything is a lesser thing
Compared to you
Compared to you
Cuz everything is a lesser thing
Compared to you
So I surrender all

Empty me
Of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition
And the poison of my pride

Empty me
Of the selfishness inside
Every vain ambition
And the poison of my pride
And any foolish thing my heart holds to
Lord empty me of me
So I can be
Lord empty me of me
So I can be
Filled with you.
Filled with you
Empty me



Sending hugs to each of you this Lords day.

The same sentiments of I Surrender All. Great words and needed words for every believer. I know what you mean about the radio. We listen to Rejoice Radio on the internet (from Pensacola,Fl) and it has been really ministering to me. So nice to hear from you, Denise. Haven't been on Facebook much, so I haven't been keeping up with you as well. God bless.

I love this song too. I enjoy listening to Christian music while I work also. Have you heard the song "While I'm Waiting"? That song brought me to tears a couple of weeks ago and really touched my heart.

We had a speaker at our Celebration Day for our club on Saturday who spoke on making time for your passion. I'm still thinking about the words she said and how they apply to my life.

What a beautiful song! I have to remind myself to be still! I completely understand about staying busy. For me - right now -I try to distract myself so not to feel pain. I shake my head...for I KNOW that if I just sit still, God will take my burdens away. He has comforted me in so many ways - so why do I stay busy? A habit that is hard to break, I suppose.

I love ya,
Becky
