Those cool new lenses



I seem to be ruining things.
Like awesome church songs.
I’ve tried scratching my eyeballs, twisting my head back to front, I’ve even resorted to making my bed in the morning (well… once)

And nothing can erase my new “I’m seeing myself too clearly and its ugly lenses.”
It’s annoying.

Like the good old “Power of your love song”

Lord, I come to You
Let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace
That I found in You

And when I say let my heart be changed, renewed I mean into a heart that is peaceful and groovy in a lets listen to praise songs in the bath kind of changed/renewed, flowing from the grace of your forgiveness, she’ll be right Jack, I can relax in the knowledge that you carry me.
 I DON”Tmean let my heart be changed/renewed into this I can see the pain in your world and my own selfishness and fearful lack of trust kind of changed/renewed, flowing from the grace that I am forgiven for my selfishness, so I can bear to see things without my rose tinted glasses.

Lord, I've come to know
The weaknesses I see in me
Will be stripped away
By the power of Your love

Like totally, you know those weaknesses like that time at camp when I took the top bunk even though I knew Stacey wanted it and I was selfish. *my bad* Please strip these ugly things away by the power of your fluffy feeling love so that I might be more totally awesome in the eyes of my friends.
NOT LIKE Lord I’ve come to know how deeply flawed I am, and that I can trust you, because you love me, to strip away the darkness within me. That you will discipline me, and mould me even though I selfishly hide your light. I mean not just a little oops I forgot to share the light and hid it under bowl occasionally type hidden, but the I’m sorry but I’m too self-absorbed, embarrassed and ashamed of you Lord to share this light even though I know its life and death important I’m not willing to upset my well-manicured social boundaries on your behalf type hidden.

Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side

Singing this in a my voice gets wobbly with the warmth of your love type way, as you bring me near because I’ve decided to sing, and you totally dig it.
NEVER singing this in a my voice gets wobbly because I’m trembling at the honour of being drawn to your side, and surrounded by your love

And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love

As I wait… until the crescendo of this song, I will soar with you like a mighty eagle (Go Eagles) as your spirit leads me onto an emotional and spiritual high that I don’t want to come down from. *Trippin*
PLEASE NOT as I wait…  for however long you will have me wait, I will soar with you, hanging onto your foot and screaming all the way for you to put me down.
  
Lord, unveil my eyes
Let me see You face to face
The knowledge of Your love
As You live in me

And when I say unveil my eyes, I mean help me see how awesome you are in my life, what an awesome addition to my awesome life you make, and how together we totally rock.
DIDNT say unveil my eyes, let me see you face to face so that I can see that as you live in me, you change me, convict me, and ask me to do hard things, because as I look into your eyes I can’t be looking at myself.

Lord, renew my mind
As Your will unfolds in my life
In living every day
By the power of Your love

I’m asking Lord renew my mind because I’m tired, and thinking about you gives me respite from my busy thoughts, and so I if you want to unfold your will in my life, can you please let me know your will because it’s Sunday and I have things to do for the rest of the week, and it’s so awesome that I can be carried by the power of your love through each day. Thanks for that.
I’m NOT asking renew my mind because I’ve been filling it with crap all week and I need to repent, and I’m not asking your will to unfold in a you will need the power of my love to achieve this kind of way cos that sounds hard and I like to skip over any hard verses in my bible.

 And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
  
Lets face it, this is me soaring…




But you seem to see this...




So it’s awesome that you have your own “I see you though my son” type lenses.


Good plan God.
