Lay it down

 The way to find life is to lay life down.

This story has nothing to do with me.

But everything to do with Jesus.

Years ago
God called me to put
My job. My friends. My reputation.
all on the line
and lay it all down

Looking at it now
it all was (is) emptiness
in. the. light. of. Jesus.

Really it ALL is
ALL dung
in. the. light. of. Jesus.

I have a choice:
stand for myself or Jesus...


I can choose only one way.

Choosing Jesus, I am misunderstood.
But I am in God's Will.

I.N.    H.I.S.     W.I.L.L.
...nothing is more AWEsome...
...nothing more real...
...nothing more powerful and true...

My world can be rocked to the very core
but I am held up by Him.

Held. by. Him.
nothing is greater

He is merciful.
He is just.
He is holy.
Again He beckons lay it down
be washed of it

 Lord I lay me down
...all of me

The only life I have is in You alone
...nothing else satisfies...
You are The Giver of True Life 

"For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” -John 3:20-21
