You Can Have Me

So, with everything going over the past few weeks, I have been doing a lot of thinking and praying.  Well, just as I’m Still Yours really spoke to me in January on the way back from GEM in Colorado, You Can Have Me really hit me last night as I was driving back to Charlottesville.  I don’t think I have ever heard the words to that song as clearly as I did last night, and they are quite amazing:

If I saw You on the street
And You said come and follow me
But I had to give up everything
All I once held dear and all of my dreams

Would I love You enough to let go?
Or would my love run dry
When You asked for my life?

When did love become unmoving?
When did love become unconsuming?
Forgetting what the world has told me
Father of love, You can have me
You can have me

I want to be where You are
I’m running into Your arms
And I will never look back
So Jesus, here is my heart

- Sidewalk Prophets, You Can Have Me

I’m Still Yours

This song has been on my mind quite a bit lately, ever since I found it while coming back from Colorado.  It’s off Kutless’ worship CD, and it just really hits me:  “When my life is not what I expected/The plans I made have failed/When there’s nothing left to steal me away/Will You be enough for me?”  But, “I’m still Yours.”  God is always there, and He’s bigger than my plans.  That is very comforting and reassuring in all the craziness right now.

If You washed away my vanity
If You took away my words
If all my world was swept away
Would You be enough for me?
Would my beating heart still sing?

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives and takes away

If You take it all
This life You’ve given
Still my heart will sing to You

When my life is not what I expected
The plans I made have failed
When there’s nothing left to steal me away
Will You be enough for me?
Will my broken heart still sing?

If I lost it all
Would my hands stay lifted
To the God who gives
And takes away

If You take it all
This life You’ve given
Still my heart
Will sing to You

Even if You take it all away
You’ll never let me go
Take it all away
But I still know

That I’m Yours
I’m still Yours

Oh, I’m Yours
I’m still Yours
I’m still Yours

-Kutless, I’m Still Yours
