Being Emptied

Free, I long to be free
I long for the day I'll believe
That all you say you see in me is true
That's hard for me to do
It's hard for me to die to myself
Entrust my life to someone else
So come empty me out
I'm no good without
You inside of me

Tuesday, December 28, 2010 I made my New Year's Resolution for the new year of 2011 ... to be emptied ...  emptied of myself ... emptied of things that really do not matter ... emptied of the world ...

Come and fill my heart with hope
Come and fill my life with love
Come and fill my soul with strengh to carry on
Because from here the climb is steep, the road is long
Come and fill my days with dreams
Empty me of all the empty things
That I hold onto
Come and fill my heart with you
 
Being reminded of what matters ... not for myself, but for Him ... not for myself, but for others ... not for myself, but for eternity ...

I need you in my life
Need you like the air that I breath
You've become the very heart of me
And I, I can't believe my eyes
Can't believe the dream that I've found
Lord, your love has turned my world around
So come fill up my heart
'Till I'm like you are
So deep inside of me
 
Setting aside the things that have no meaning, and setting my sights on what matters to Him ... His purpose ... His promise ... His plan ...

Search me, Lord

Try my heart
Come and take me now and make me new
So that all of the world will see you
Overflow in my life
 
Knowing that He knows me better than I know myself ... He knows my very thoughts ... He knows my purpose ... 
 
Come and fill my heart with hope
Come and fill my life with love
Come and fill my soul with strength to carry on
Because from here the climb is steep, the road is long
Come and fill my days with dreams
Empty me of all the empty things
That I hold onto
Come and fill my heart with you
 
I'm still His work in progress ... my empty things are being emptied daily ... and He continues to fill me with Him.

Aren't we all a work in progress? Praise God for His patience towards us. He knows we are but dust and need a lot of TLC.
