Doing or Being

Lord I love to be doing
Serving you with my gifts and time
I love to get involved with what you are doing
To be ever on the move as I strive to serve you.
Service can be hard
Service can be challenging.
Yet there are so many needs to be met.
So many hurting people

The world needs doers,
Those who will accept the challenge
Those who will battle through the tough times.
So why Lord do you call me to be
Rather than to do?
To spend time alone with you
Why do you ask me to be still,
And listen?

Listening is hard
Listening takes time
It is far harder than serving
Listening stops me,
From doing your work.
And yet as I listen,You speak
I am learning to be
Rather than to do.
You want my love
More than my service.
And As I listen
I hear your agenda.
You want me to go
And tell others about your love
And that above all what You desire
Is a relationship.
