Be still and know

I often feel like I am running around like mad man

Trying to juggle the things that happen day by day.

Things running around in my head at a thousand miles an hour.

BE STILL AND KNOW

The wordpool of my mind says I can’t hold it all in

Faster, faster quicker, quicker things come in. They come and I don’t know what to do.

Stop the world I want to get off.

BE STILL AND KNOW

Plates are spinning life is swirling, whirling and turning, so fast all is a blur!

They are going to fall!

Fall to the floor and smash to the ground broken unable to be put back together.

BE STILL AND KNOW

Am I being pulled apart, broken and poured out spilled to the floor!

Lost and spilling through the cracks of life.

Never to be the same again.

BE STILL AND KNOW

BE STILL AND KNOW

Stop Bang Crash!

BE STILL AND KNOW

BE STILL AND KNOW

BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!

So I Stop what I am doing!

I Quit trying,

I Quit fretting,

I Quit panicking,

I Quit fussing,

I Quit resisting.

I am still . . .

And I know that you are God. .  .

I trust that You know what you’re doing with Me

And I am in awe or you. . .

I am Resting in your arms of love. . .

I am still and know that I am with God. . .

Wash Me LORD!

LORD as you washed your disciples, feet so long ago.

May I be reminded of it now!

 

The feeling of refreshing water flowing over me.

Warm water falling over my toes and my weary feet.

The Feeling of dirt washed away.

That refreshing cleansing feeling LORD!

Coming over me and cleansing me from the bottom up.

That warming feeling that only comes from you,

all the cleaning power that I will ever need!

 

Then lord if I like Paul could ask for more I would say.

LORD, wash me! Wash all of me LORD!

 

Amen.

Just keep on reminding me LORD!

Sometimes I feel that I have gone from you,

Like I have turned and walked away.

But then I see your beauty in creation.

And I know you are around me working wonders,

Taking delight in each new spiders web and

Laughing with joy at each new budding flower.

Each made by your mighty hand with care and love.

 

So great is your faithfulness to carry on with a sinner like me

And so amazing is your love that you my king should die for me.

I am forgiven by your love, how it can be, how can it be.

So I put my trust in you my GOD!

And I trust that I am forgiven, set free by your amazing grace.

If I ever feel that I have gone from you LORD,

Remind me it is never ever going to be your fault LORD.

 

Just keep on reminding me LORD!

Please!

 

Amen.

Come sit with me awhile LORD,

Come sit with me awhile LORD,

Let me rest my head upon you.

Take away the raging storm that flows within me,

That it may calm my troubled mind.

 

Let me weep upon your shoulder LORD.

Tears of sorrow but mingled sweetly with joy.

Let the cleansing tears flow out,

They can only come from resting with you.

 

Then LORD, may you sing sweet lullabies

To comfort me and give me rest.

Fill me LORD; fill me with your peace.

And hold me; hold me in your loving arms.

 

Let me rest with you LORD,

Just for a little while, this is all that I need.

So come sit with me awhile LORD,

And let me rest my head upon you.

 

Amen.

Mistakes!

LORD, help me learn from my mistakes.

Let me to be honest with myself.

May I learn to put the past behind;

Then remember not to do it again.

 

I know that I will make mistakes,

I will stumble in many ways.

But I would be foolish to stumble

Over the same way over and over again.

 

Let me ponder the path of my feet.

Then all my ways will be sure.

May every choice that I make,

Be in the pursuit of you LORD.

 

Amen.

Cleanse my heart

Almighty GOD, open my heart,

Rip it right open; lay it bare for all to see.

Cleanse my heart, scrub away my guilt.

Soak out my sins until I come out clean.

 

Make me clean; with a snow- white life.

LORD GOD, give me a fresh start, a new beginning.

With afresh wind in my sails and a new heading

Shape a Genesis from the chaos of my life.

 

It’s only you, who can cleanse my life,

It’s only you, who I have sinned against,

It’s you, who can re-create my heart and renew my spirit,

And it’s only you who can restore my joy.

 

Almighty God, re-create my heart,

And I will sing anthems of praise.

Tell all of your life giving ways.

Then trust in your unfailing love.

 

Amen.
