Be My Everything.

I heard this song Wednesday at church and although I’d heard it before I was struck by how true it is… So I thought I’d use it to show the truth in my own life. 🙂

GOD IN MY LIVING
Every day I see little things that he does, the sunset that takes my breath away, the friend who calls to say they were thinking of me, the way everything has lined up perfectly without fail for everything here in VA…
THERE IN MY BREATHING
Try once to pray without taking a deep breath… it doesn’t work, you can’t do it. If you’re serious about talking to your savior every time you’ll take a deep breath first
GOD IN MY WAKING
I can’t remember any time in my life when I did not wake up and thank God for the day.. even when I’m tired or don’t really want to go about my day… but every morning I am thankful… It’s like waking up with the sunshine on your bed. J
GOD IN MY SLEEPING
I can’t count the number of times I’ve fallen asleep praying… and while I’ve heard some people say that’s a terrible thing to do, but why wouldn’t you want to fall asleep talking to the person who made you and saved you? It’s like falling asleep with the assurance you’re bring watched over and protected.
GOD IN MY RESTING
I’ve never experienced pure rest like that when I’m praising him, and truly just sitting and being with him.
THERE IN MY WORKING
Some of my most meaningful work in my life has been the hardest times I’ve ever worked, the most exhausting, the hardest emotionally, physically, and yet through it all I have been fulfilled and energized.
GOD IN MY THINKING
I don’t think I can say I’ve ever heard God’s voice, but I know there at times that when I was talking to myself something would suddenly pop into my head that would solve my problem, make something work out perfectly or would be one of those “aha… duh” kind of things that you just know came out of no where… that’s my God.
GOD IN MY SPEAKING
Once I spoke to some of my teens, and I know it wasn’t me speaking because I don’t remember what I said.. but they listened intently the entire time.. no one talked (YOU talk to 50 teens without them talking.. haha yeah right!).. and no one fell asleep (which was the only time the entire week on the missions trip. It’s like knowing you’re saying what needs to be said.. but not being prepared ahead of time for what’s coming out of your mouth.

CHORUS:

BE MY EVERYTHING
How could you not want him to be your everything when things are just different when he is interwoven with it all?
BE MY EVERYTHING
There’s something freeing about knowing it’s not you.
BE MY EVERYTHING
Not one time in my life have I ever wished I’d done it differently when I let God take over.
BE MY EVERYTHING
It’s like allowing him to take credit… and blame (if there ever would be).. which is liberating.

VERSE 2:
GOD IN MY HOPING
If all things truly are possible.. then hoping becomes something exciting and promising.
THERE IN MY DREAMING
Every dream I’ve ever had that I truly became excited and pumped about down in my heart has not only come true (so far.. minus a few that I’m waiting for the right timing)
GOD IN MY WATCHING
Watch a small child love, laugh, pray, sleep… and you’ll feel it in your heart.
GOD IN MY WAITING
This is by far the hardest for me to do.. (any wonders as to why here?).. But, not one time have I regretted waiting… I just forget to remind myself of that fact in the moment 😉

GOD IN MY LAUGHING
Some of my favorite memories have been laughing for hours with others who truly love my sweet savior too. There’s something that makes the experience relaxing and energizing.
THERE IN MY WEEPING
I have hurt deeply when I didn’t understand why someone had to die, and the only thing that I could think or pray was “God help me” and slowly over time I’ve always felt his peace.
GOD IN MY HURTING
I always forget to FIRST go to God when I’m hurting, but once I do I know deep down in my heart that this too shall pass.
GOD IN MY HEALING
Looking back on the various things I’ve felt I needed to heal from… I cherish the road that it took for me to get to what I feel is true healing.

BRIDGE:

CHRIST IN ME
If you can get through everything I’ve said previously and not feel Christ in you.. you’re broken.
CHRIST IN ME
I feel Christ in me every day, in moments when I am encouraging others.
CHRIST IN ME THE HOPE OF GLORY

The fact that I have Christ means I have hope.
BE MY EVERYTHING
I’m not sure how after looking at all of this he COULDN’T be your everything…
