Entirely His

My heart’s cry

To really know

That I am

Entirely His

 

That each day

My life

My all

Belongs to Him

 

Acknowledging this

That I possess

Nothing

Save Christ

 

Letting go

Of worldly things

To cling to Him

Alone

 

These words express

My heart’s desire

But is this my

Reality

 

Have I given

All of me

To Him

Completely

 

What do I hold back

Unwilling

To lay it down

At His feet

 

The heart can be

Deceptive

Telling lies

To soothe my conscience

 

But there is yet

A voice that speaks

Into the deepest

Part of me

 

It bids me come

Closer still

To pursue with

Reckless abandon

 

Reaching, longing

Gasping for Him

All else fades

Into irrelevance

 

Christ alone

My one desire

That I would be

Entirely His

    It is a compelling call. The closer I get, the more I hear it. The more of Him I have, the more I want. Nothing else matters really. . . except the hope that He might use what I have found to help others find the same.

    I had a thought this morning along these lines – if you stretch it a little. Being a builder of high end homes, I understand there are fewer of them because there are not many in the market for them. Similarly, I wonder sometimes if we have not experienced high end Christianity. There are not as many in the market for it.

    Still there is the compelling call and a trust that He will bring those across my path that have a similar hunger.

    Wonderful words! Once we have a taste of heaven nothing else will suffice!
