if for the rest of my life i am to live dying to myself so that i may please you, i shall do it. the only thing i ask lord is that you give me the strength to surrender my soul to you, daily, if that's what it takes. and in those moments when i feel like giving up. and in those moments when i want to go back to desiring what i want. and in those moments when my selfishness gets in the way. please, lord, please remind me that you are more than enough. and may i have the strength to repeat to myself that your ways are higher than my ways, your will is always better, that i love your will, and finally that your strength is mine.
i love you... and it's only because you loved me first.
