I’ve been listening to this song, Hosanna by Hillsong United, on repeat for days now… almost a week. It’s an amazing song that takes you through the journey of recognizing who God is, accepting and realizing that it’s because of Him that our sins are forgiven, desiring to be apart of the body, and searching for Him as Christians.
The prayer at the end of the song has me in tears because for me it’s been difficult to really SEE all that He’s done for me and blessed me with because of pride and stubbornness, a hard heart. I UNDERSTAND and ACCEPT that He’s forgiven me, that He showers me with grace and mercy, and accepts me completly but I have a hard time allowing that same forgiveness and grace to FREELY and IMMEDIATELY through me to others. It takes a minute. Trusting Him more and more for that.
Here is the prayer:
Take my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you, have loved me.
Break my heart for what breaks yours
Everything I am for the Kingdom’s cause
As I go from nothing to
My prayer is that God allows me to see Him more and more each day.. continues to open my eyes to what I don’t see and to continue to convict me about my pride so that I am able to see Him more clearly. I no longer want to be so prideful and hard that my own actions don’t cause the pain that in ME that it causes in other people.
I want to love you, like He loves me.
… here’s to growing in the grace, peace, and knowledge of God. And, if I can… toss in wisdom!
