My Surrender

Placed in the fire

I wanted to run

The pressure 

The stripping 

The losses

A heavenly mandate

Your plans would reign 

I laid mine down 

My life a laid down offering 

Everything I held dear

Slipping through my fingers

You conquered my heart

Changed my path

Nothing to hold onto

In this place of separation

My eyes lock with Yours

Your fire burns up my desires

My brokenness buried

My past a vague memory 

You are my deepest need

Your love bursts through

I know who You are

I know who I am

Taking me beyond the veil

To experience Your wonders…

The pressure 

The stripping 

The losses

My surrender…positioned me

I am honoured to be known by You

I in You

You in me

Our new normal…
