You Are My Desire

You are my desire
My soul longs after you
Every day in every way
You fill me through and through

You are my desire
My heart is in your hands
There is no greater purpose
Than walking in your plan

You are my desire
Your joy awakens me
I never have to worry
About my destiny

You are my desire
Your grace delivers me
I never have been worthy
Of the mercy shown to me

You are my desire
Your peace calms every storm
I rest in great assurance
That I am in your arms

You are my desire
You make all thing new
Your love is everlasting
I give my life to you

Before I came top know Jesus I had desires that were of this world. Drugs, alcohol, sex, power, riches and all kinds of worldly things were the longings of my heart. The defined me in my own imagination and nothing could change me because I really did not want to change, at least on the surface. But deep down inside, where the soul and spirit of a man lay, I was in turmoil. Je knew the lifestyle I was living was not sustainable. I knew one day it would kill me.

But I died a different death than expected. When I met Jesus, that man that I was started to fade away, to die out. That old man and all of it’s desires became my history instead of my present moments. I found myself with a new desire, something much bigger and greater then heaping things upon myself. Jesus was now the source of my purpose in life. He came in and dispelled of the old man and gave me new desires. Now I longed for love, peace, joy, hope, patience, faith and all those godly virtues. And my deepest desire was to praise Him, the one I used to curse. What a change in my life. What a wondrous love He has for me!

Psalm 37:4 King James Version
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart

Effective Prayer

I Am His

I lived without God for years
Was filled with worry and fear
I could not figure out
Why I had such doubt
So I wandered through life in tears

I knew day by day He was calling
He tried to prevent me from falling
Then one day I bowed
And I made a vow
That I’d put an end to my stalling

Every second I need Him
Every minute I call Him
Every day I will lift up my praise
Every month I am His
Every year close to Him
Forever I’ll worship His name

Now I don’t go a minute without Him
For I know that through Him I will win
He is my strength
My joy He sustains
In peace He is always within

Every day
Every hour
Each minute
Each second
I am His
I am His

Every second I need Him
Every minute I call Him
Every day I will lift up my praise
Every month I am His
Every year close to Him
Forever I’ll worship His name

My Story

This is my story
How God came from glory
To save an old sinner like me
He gave His life
As my sacrifice
So from sin I would be set free

Now I rejoice
For I hear His voice
Guiding me every day
His peace goes with me
His Word I believe
From His plan I never will stray

Wonderful Savior
Glorious Lord
Keep me in your loving arms
Grant me your grace
So I’ll see your face
That day when the trumpet alarms

I lift up my praise
To your merciful name
I lift my song up to you
With all that I am
With worship I stand
Singing Jesus I’ll always love you
