I Lift Up My Spirit

I need Your strength.

I need Your strength.

I need Your strength.

 

My heart is heavy.

I feel a tiny piece.

Of what Your burden is for the world.

So, Lord, I ask You to guide my heart.

I need You Holy One to hold me, please.

My spirit can’t take this world.

So Holy One…

 

I lift up my spirit to Your name.

Hold me, Lord, grasp me.

Let me feel Your love and mercy.

This world is weak.

My flesh is screaming against me.

I am struggling.

Almighty love me through this.

 

I feel the darkness,

Lingering deception.

It creeps around.

Sticks its foot in the door.

When everything hurts me.

When I don’t understand.

It laughs and points

at my broken spirit.

 

I lift up my spirit to Your name.

Hold me, Lord, grasp me.

Let me feel Your love and mercy.

This world is weak.

My flesh is screaming against me.

I am struggling.

Almighty, love me through this.

 

My spirit knows that there is a reason

And His name

Is JESUS

I can get through all of this only because

Of Your Holy name.

 

I lift up my spirit to Your name.

Hold me, Lord, grasp me.

Let me feel Your love and mercy.

 

Even when I am struggling

I know You are with me.

I can feel Your love.

 

Oh, Holy One.

Oh, Holy One.

Oh, Holy One.

I pray and seek the Lord in that this speaks to your heart. Trust Him through the darkness of this world! He has a way! Keeping praying for the body of Christ. Pray for His hand to be seen against the darkness. Pray that others see Him and turn to Christ before it is too late! 

(NLT) Romans 8:-08-09, “That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God. But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to Him at all.)

    1. ❤ I've been working on asking for more direction in His discernment and for Him to stir a boldness and courageous spirit within me. To keep trusting His hand in our life.

      I believe I have the gift of discernment, but I'm not content with simply knowing I have the gift. Instead, I want to seek His hand earnestly and know how He wants me to use it, and to know what He is directing me with.

      Thank you so much, Sue! I have another heart song for tomorrow encouraging everyone to endure and that He is coming!
