Dedication

I’m not usually a song-writer, but I was inspired to write a prayer song a few days ago. I scribbled it down then, and have now added a couple verses to it. I didn’t write it with any particular suffering in mind – just prayers that I realized I should pray far more often than I do. As I tried to develop the song, I wasn’t able to come up with any new verses until I dug into my own soul and found the Holy Spirit’s groanings lodged there. Now I hope it is a comfort for anybody who may be going through times of doubt or sorrow. Here’s the passage of Scripture that inspired it:

2 Timothy 2:11-13: “The saying is trustworthy, for: If we have died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He also will deny us; if we are faithless, He remains faithful – for He cannot deny Himself.”

Dedication
I’ve got no words that surpass Your own.
I’ve got no plans to earn my way before Your throne.
The only thing that I can do
Is fall on my knees before You.

I’ll take the cup that You’ve given me.
Lord, teach me how to share in Your suffering.
Take this heart made of stone
And make it a heart like Your own.

For if we die with You, we will also live with You.
And if we endure like You, we will reign by Your side.
Make me humble, give me faith,
Let me see what life is like
Fully alive.

Do I believe these words that I say?
Would I give up all I know to pursue Your Holy Way?
Give me strength, if it’s Your plan,
And I’ll do what You say that I can.

In days to come, I know I will see
How well You’ve preserved me, how close You have held me.
In this storm, I will hold true
To the Truth I believe about You.

For if we die with You, we will also live with You.
And if we endure like You, we will reign by Your side.
Make me humble, give me faith,
Let me see what life is like
Fully alive –
Abundant Life.

In order of importance: The Lord Jesus Christ gave me life and a song. The English degree got me joy and a job. The tickle to write galvanized this weird blog.

  1. Great job! Answering your question…sounds like for you that is a fueling issue that needs to be addressed. Perhaps you need to experiment with different types of fuel. GU or whatever doesn’t work for every runner. Look into some natural forms of fueling like perhaps dried cherries dried fruit etc. Caffeine messes me up sometimes too so you may need to switch up what you are doing also hydration wise. Hope this helps! Run happy!
