Take My Life

Sometimes, life just doesn’t make sense.

Then I remember. It doesn’t have to.

‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Things go wrong. Life doesn’t also meet my own expectations. And that freaks me out a little. Ok, a lot. But life isn’t up to me. It’s up to God. And he’s gonna do so many much cooler things with my life than I could ever do on my own.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

I trust You, God. You have a plan. And that plan may not make sense to me. And that’s ok.

‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ (Jeremiah 29:11)

That thing that went wrong? Yah, it hurts. But you know what? I’ll get over it. ‘Cause God has a plan. And I’m gonna follow His plan. Not my plan, not your plan, not even my teachers’ or my parents’ plans. His plan. His.

Here am I, all of me. Take my life. It’s all for thee. (Chris Tomlin, Take My Life)
