I give UP…

… my life to You… For all that You’ve given to me.

GRACE

by Laura Story

My heart is so proud. My mind is so unfocused.
I see the things You do through me as great things I have done. And now You gently break me, then lovingly You take me and hold me as my Father and mold me as my Maker.

Chorus:

I ask you: “How many times will You pick me up, when I keep on letting You down?
And each time I will fall short of Your glory, how far will forgiveness abound?”
And You answer: ” My child, I love you. 
And as long as you’re seeking My face, you’ll walk in the pow’r of My daily sufficient grace.”

At times I may grow weak and feel a bit discouraged, knowing that someone, somewhere could do a better job. For who am I to serve You?  I know I don’t deserve You.   And that’s the part that burns in my heart and keeps me hanging on.

Chorus*
I ask You: “How many times will You pick me up, when I keep on letting You down?
And each time I will fall short of Your glory, how far will forgiveness abound?”
And You answer: ” My child, I love you.
And as long as you’re seeking My face, you’ll walk in the pow’r of My daily sufficient grace.”

And You are so patient with me, Lord…

As I walk with You, I’m learning about what Your grace really means. How all of my transgressions… are paid at Calvary.  [The price that I could never pay was paid at Calvary.]  So instead of trying to repay You, I’m learning to simply obey You by giving up my life to You… For all that You’ve given to me.

Chorus:

I ask you: “How many times will You pick me up, when I keep on letting You down?
And each time I will fall short of Your glory, how far will forgiveness abound?”
And You answer: ” My child, I love you.
And as long as you’re seeking My face, you’ll walk in the pow’r of My daily sufficient GRACE.”
