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
