A Letter to God
by Vivian Brewer
Lord, I'm yours! I want only your will in my life.
I realize I'm not here on earth to do my own thing,
or seek my own fulfillment, or my own glory.
I'm not here to indulge my desires or to increase my own possessions.
I'm not here to impress people - to be popular or important,
or to promote myself.
I'm here to please YOU!!
I learned a long time ago to follow Job 13:15, "though he slay me, yet will I trust him."
I offer myself to you, for you alone are worthy.
I'm yours by creation - all that I am I owe to you!
I receive from you every day - life and breath and all things. I'm yours!
You bought me and paid the price of your dear son's blood.
You alone (Father, Son & Spirit) are worthy.
You, my Father, gave to me the Lord Jesus, who gave Himself for me,
shed His blood for me, and sent me the empowering of the Holy Spirit.
I give you my rebellion,
which resists your will and tells me I can do all things in my own power.
I give you my fears,
which tell me I'll never be able to do your will in some areas of my life.
Energize me, oh God, create in me the power and the desire to do your will.
I give you my body (what there is left of it!) -
my entire inner being, my mind, my emotional life, my will;
my marriage, my children, my grandchildren, and my great grandchildren;
my abilities and gifts, my strengths and my weaknesses, my heart, my health
(such as it is), my status, my possessions, my past, present and future,
and when, where, and how I'll go home to Heaven.
I'm here to love you, obey you, and glorify you!
Oh, Jesus, may I be a joy to you!
P.S. I praise you that you are sovereign!
With you nothing is accidental or incidental.
With you nothing is wasted.
You, Lord, in your power are the breath of life - and all destiny is yours.
You show your love back to me with others looking on.
Thank you that I can move into the future,
for whatever lies ahead, you hold the future.
You will always be with me - even in my old age - and forever!!
