You Can Have Me

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat. The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the LORD are sure and altogether righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. Who can discern his errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then will I be blameless, innocent of great transgression. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Psalm 19 (NIV)

When I read Psalms like this, it makes me want to give myself anew. I want God to know I know who He is in my life. I know I will stumble and sin tomorrow. But for this moment, I want to focus on how great my God is, and just tell him, whatever you want, you can have me.








You Can Have Me

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

CHORUS
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

If You’re all You claim to be
Then I’m not losing anything
So I will crawl upon my knees
Just to know the joy of suffering

I will love You enough to let go
Lord, I give you my life
I give you my life

CHORUS

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

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

CHORUS

Blessings Shannon...Beautiful scripture from Psalm! May His Word be sweeter than honey to you! Love your thoughts and thanks for sharing openly at my blog! I'm just getting to know "Sidewalk Prophets" so I appreciate you sharing both this one and the one on Jan. 4th. What a great message "You Can Have Me" holds...

Sounds to me like a great song of surrendering to Jesus. Looks like this song speaks to you & for you and keeps your unique conversation going between you & God! He is Your heavenly Father and loves you so much & I'm sure He loves talking through songs! (I'm like that too)
ENJOY a wonderful day in His Presence! Surround yourself with music to sing praises & love to Him
