If I became less aware of everyone around me, drown, myself in my own sorrows, never smiled again; would I still be of your concern?
If I gave up all my hopes, my dreams, my ambitions; would you still let me set at your table?
If everything out of my mouth were a lie, embellished, or words of hurt flew to everyone I passed; would I still be allowed to speak to you?
If I no longer had perfect pitch, or knew how to sway with the music, or had no rhythm at all; would I still be able to sing in your choir?
If my fingers could no longer keep up with the melody, my instrument was never in tune, the song never complete; would you still let me in the band?
If my eyes could no longer tell the difference between blue and green, my ears were no longer able to hear my own name and my nose no longer able to breathe in the sweet air; would I still be able to write about the wonderful world you have created?
If I lost all my faith, turned away from you or never again asked for your help; would you still try to reach me?
Lord I am lost in my own mind. There are so many different me’s in here it is hard to discern who I really am. I give so much of myself to people and hurt is usually my payment from them. You have given me a huge heart yet I don’t know where to start to use it in a way of your choosing. You have filled me with so much creativity that even I don’t know my own limits. The music flows from me and yet I feel so small to take the lead in your choir. I get lost in the piano and sweet melodies flow from my fingers.
Lord open my eyes and help me see the me that you want me to be. Fill my mind with your commands to help me help others. Open my ears and let me hear the pleas of those I can help. Strengthen my voice so that others will hear you through me. Help me understand and recognize why it is that you have put me here in your world. Lead me to the path of your choosing and I will follow willingly. Help me find the true me.
