Let This Be The Year

Let this be the year Lord,

that we finally put away the old

and cling to the new, giving true worship to You

Let this be the year,

that we take off our mask and begin to ask,

who do You say I am?

Let this be the year,

That we bend a knee in worship and

raise our hands without fear

(or at least the hands of our souls)

Let this be the year

that we pursue You with passion

and give our all to heed your call

Let this be the year

that we open our mouths and speak to the lost,

piercing hearts with the gospel and watching God invade

because we obeyed

Let this be the year

that I let you break through the walls that guard my vulnurablity

and instead give me, authenticity

Let this be the year

that we get up and seek you as the sunrise seeks the horizon, and

before the tides of the day wash our desire away

Let this be the year,

that we take in all of your splendor, hardly blinking an eye

that we would lift your name on high

Let this be the year,

that we give our lives to you

as you give us the desires of our hearts,

not our desires, but Yours, implanted and brought forth

by You and for You

Let this be the year Lord

that we remind ourselves everyday

that nothing but the blood of Jesus

has set us free

Hi Sarah May! Thanks for stopping by The Journey. I love this post. There is so much here. The mask vs. authenticity thing is such a challenge--it's scary to expose our vulnerable selves. Only by God's grace and by truly trusting Him.
