When the answer comes....



This morning as I was laying in bed thinking about an issue that I have been struggling with. I began to pray and ask God for some guidance and He layed something on my heart:
 
When we ask Him for advice or guidance, and receive the answer, we have a way of "humanizing" the answer.
Our minds can't fathom His wisdom and in our best efforts I believe it is what we do to help. I really do mean well so I try to overcompensate or justify the situation or issue. Thinking about it, it becomes another way of "handling it on our own" The problem is when we do this we return to our own strength which is why we fail time and time again.  When the answer comes we need to trust that is what is best for us without adding or minimizing it.  I love how He reassures me that He is working in me giving me the power & desire to do what pleases HIM!!



I Look To You

As I lay me down,
Heaven hear me now.
I'm lost without a cause
After giving it my all.
Winter storms have come
And darkened my sun.
After all that I've been through
Who on earth can I turn to?
I look to you.
I look to you.
After all my strength is gone,
In you I can be strong
I look to you.

And when melodies are gone,
In you I hear a song.
I look to you.
About to lose my breathe,
There's no more fighting left,
Sinking to rise no more,
Searching for that open door.
And every road that I've taken
Lead to my regret.
And I don't know if I'm going to make it.
Nothing to do but lift my head
I look to you.

My walls have come
Tumbling down on me
The rain is falling.
Defeat is calling.
I need you to set me free.
Take me far away from the battle.
I need you.
Shine on me.
I look to you.
