What would you say if I told you,
“I long to lose my life?”
Would you think I was depressed,
or filled with grief and strife?

What would you say if I told you,
“To lose my life is a blessing?”
Would you tell me I am wrong,
and try your best to help me?

See,what some fail to realize,
is that to loose my life is gain
For when I truly lose my life,
Christ is then free to reign

So it is no longer my life,
But Christ whom lives in me
And he will guide my life,
until only he is seen

But he will not indwell in my life,
if I am not willing to submit
To fill my mind with the word of God,
and live by every word of it

So open up my mind Dear Lord,
For I want to know your ways
I want to know you more and more
until self has gone away

I do not want my life anymore,
Lord, I long for only yours
So I will suffer my life in this world,
to only know you more

So yes I long to lose my life,
and to God I will submit
Because to completely lose your life,
You most certainly will find his.


I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 KJV

He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:39 KJV

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