Happy New Year!
There is a lot of talk right now about leading, following, resolutions, goals, plans, etc . . . I'll be joining in soon, but for today, here is just a smattering of my thoughts as I have been evaluating, re-evaluating, and planning for the New Year. May you find encouragement in your Lord today.
KICK OUT MY PROPS
by Katie Hornor
Kick out my props of goodness, Lord.
Take every help away.
Pierce my pride with your own sword.
Humbly make me pray.
To see myself as you see me,
This is my desire.
To be aglow with thankfulness;
O Lord! Please light the fire!
I merit not your favor.
It's your mercy, Lord, I plead.
By your grace work in my heart
To follow where you lead.
O Lord, lead on as you see fit,
Through fire or storm or flood.
For you once went through all for me,
And conquered by your blood!
