Why do I settle for things so small
When I serve a God so mighty and big?
Why do I think I have no worth
and not understand the value of one soul?
Why does my faith not include healing me
Yet I believe that others can be healed?
Why do I feel like the one who cried,
“Lord, help me in my unbelief?”
The God who wears the heaven as a robe ..
Why should He look upon an unclean one as I?
What do I have to offer the Great I AM?
What do I have that isn’t already His?
I need only to ask and I shall receive
Blessings, mercy, and loving kindness
I must look past this body of flesh
To become a temple of His Holiness
I must put aside all earthly desires
And invite Him to empower me by love
I must believe in my own value
For in His eyes I am a treasured child
It’s sometimes easier to say than do
But a whitewashed cup I do not want to be me
Upon the floor I fall to my knees
And simply say “change me, O Lord, change me”
In the quiet and the stillness I hear
The voice of God who stoops to my side
Into His embrace I feel myself drawn
As He says, “You belong to Me”
His warmth stays with me as I rise
Ready and abled to do His will
Daily now I repent and pray
For I know heaven’s Holy One is near
The Father guides and corrects me
The Son leads and shows me
The Holy Spirit comforts me
And I, obedient, follow and serve
