Please, break me.
The older I get, the more I understand how amazing your grace really is, the more you bless me with a dose of wisdom here and there . . . the more I realize how little I really know . . . and how in a state of confusion, and fear . . . I do not yeild to the Spirit . . . but try to control . . .
And at those times . . . I am probably standing more in Your way than by Your side . . .
Please Lord, break me . . . from wanting to be in control because of my being afraid of the unknown. If You are leading the way, then why am I still afraid? Break me Lord, of all that keeps me fearful.
As my personal mission in life becomes more clearer day by day . . . and as You ask me to do more things that are out-of-my comfort zone . . . to be honest, way-out-of-my comfort zone . . . things that cause my heart to leap for joy, yet which causes my mind and body to cry out in fear . . . I ask that you would give me an ample portion of Your Holy Spirit, comfort, peace and strength to make up for my sometimes weak-as-water backbone.
Please Lord, break me . . . of those things I let keep me weak . . . that keep my response on the slow side. Break me from ever thinking again . . . "I am only human." Break me from fretful worry about limits . . .
I hear you Lord . . . "Play the guitar and sing in more places . . . Learn to play piano . . . Go to Kenya . . . Pray harder and more often for more people . . . Teach more people to both learn about and live out the Bible . . . Take my ministry more to the community . . . Take members of my church with me . . . Reach out to the poor, the hungry, the naked, and to those who have no voice . . . "
Please Lord, break me . . . of my stuttering excuses and weak willed replies . . . for nothing is impossible with You . . . with You, all things are possible.
I am afraid . . . I am doubting . . . yet I will step forward because of my faith in you.
Guide me O Thou Great Jehovah . . .
