Holy Fire

Lord, I want to be Yours
Lord, I want to be free
from me
From my own wisdom (blech)
From my own sin
I want to want Your will more than my own
I want to be controlled by Your desires
not mine
To be fully Yours is to be free
I feel so full of me this morning, it is making me sick
Consume me
with You

Yes, Wendy, I did write it. I have no idea if it is any good, but it is easier for me to express my feelings this way sometimes.

I just got back from a Beth Moore seminar and it was all about dying to our ego. Guess God was getting me ready. :)

Wonderful prayer, Tawny. I love the promise of freedom that you mention here, as we fully surrender ourselves to Christ. It was inspiring to read this today :)

Very embarrassing, I am sorry!
