Learning to Live

 

I’m relying on you Lord.

Show me
what you want me to do
and I’ll do it;
help me to understand
what it is you want of me,
that I may do the right thing;
make me want to live your ways
above anything else.

You give me everything I need
to fight the battle,
you save me.

When people say I am stupid
for relying on you,
may I stand strong
and speak truth.

You give me freedom
from needing to follow the crowd,
you alone are my source of joy.

I trust
and follow you.

Psalm 119:33-40  (CEV)

33 Point out your rules to me,
and I won’t disobey
even one of them.
34 Help me to understand your Law;
I promise to obey it
with all my heart.
35 Direct me by your commands!
I love to do what you say.
36 Make me want to obey you,
rather than to be rich.
37 Take away my foolish desires,
and let me find life
by walking with you.
38 I am your servant!
Do for me what you promised
to those who worship you.
39 Your wonderful teachings
protect me from the insults
that I hate so much.
40 I long for your teachings.
Be true to yourself
and let me live.

Teach Me, O Lord
