Being Still

Sitting, waiting because You said to be still

Any idea how hard it can be to do Your will?

When fleshly desires are screaming in my head

Fighting off anger, again seeing red

Bouncing off the walls trying to get my way

Lord give me the strength to let You have Your way

That old man continually knocks at my door

Trying to get me to question what all my sacrifices are for

That old man doesn’t know You like I do

That old man doesn’t know the sacrifice You went through

You hung on that cross to pay that old man’s debt

Blood poured out; covered sin, shame, and regret

I guess if You could be still on that cross for me

I could be still and wait for life more abundantly

  1. Powerful words; powerful image. You really dug deep, and it speaks deeply.
    He really did nail all our sins on the cross (1 Peter 2.24), and it’s up to us not to go grab them back, or think that it’s not personal. We can be still and wait on Him, trust Him.
