Awake with Awareness

November 20, 2011

I don’t want to change the world
I want to be changed by You
The darkness in me is great
Your light exposes

When I see Your face
And I know that You see mine
Your love cuts through me
My shame and guilt are removed
I’m overwhelmed by Your love

As long as I’m in the flesh
I awake with awareness
My humanity can rule
If I allow it

I have a choice to be loved
To accept his forgiveness
To face the truth about me
The truth about God

I am changed by His story
His teachings have saved my life
I want to know Your love more
Live by Your Spirit

Looking back I see failure
My ignorance grieves my soul
To begin each day with love
Is my only hope

I will look forward
Eyes fixed on the Beloved
Hungry to know Him better
Eager to obey
The one who loves without end
My friend, my Savior, my Lord

I come this morning
Purify my heart, dear Lord
Open my eyes to see You
I cannot fathom
How near and dear Your love is
