LETTING GO

Letting Go

Iím convinced I donít praise you enough God - at least thatís what I was told
And my prayers are passionless and fruitless and the fire in me is now cold
Iím convinced I donít sing enough for you and listen to music thatís sinful
And my discernment is at an all-time low and my hearing of your voice is dull
Iím convinced I donít pray enough, read my bible or encourage all my friends
And I tried to tithe when you said I should but in that I failed again
Iím convinced I donít have this all together, I ask, am I even saved?
But Iíll keep working until I get it right - until my charges have been waived
Iím convinced I just donít do enough Lord so Iíll work harder for the cause
Iíll keep striving to perfect my righteousness and somehow gain your applause

Then suddenly without warning I heard your voice cut through the lies
With authority and gentleness I heard you firmly reply -
Itís not what you do that validates who I AM
Itís not your righteousness or your works that has made me the spotless lamb
I came to take away your sin and wash you white as snow
So child it is your self-righteousness I ask you to let go
When you strive and press to do good works for me
Others are not seeing the glory that can be
For others are looking upon you and seeing flesh puffed up in pride
So what I ask of you is to allow your flesh to die
Let me resurrect in that place and do great works through you
So others can see the righteousness I bring and how I make lives new
Let go of reputation and be content with being mine
For you will see this is the work of the cross - my wonderful holy design!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
