"I Come To You More Than I Give"

In this season of transition, even the way we approach GOD must different.  Not always with our hand out, asking for something.  Yet, with an open ear listening surrendering ourselves  to what GOD has planned for our lives, families, communities, and the kingdom. 

I come to You more than I give
I come to You more than I give

When the time comes for us to pray
We find other things to say instead of giving thanks
For what God has already done we're asking for more

But with a grateful heart we ought to pray
"Lord let Your will be done and if you never give me
Another thing I'll just thank You for forgiving me"

I come to You more than I give
Always with my hands out instead of lifting them up
I come to you give, oh Lord will You give me another chance

Always with my hands out instead of giving myself
Enough to say, "Lord I know that I'm in Your perfect will
Realizing as ungrateful as I've been
The giving you has removed all sin, I vow to never be the same"

I come to You more than I give
Always with my hands out instead of me lifting them up
I come to you more than I give, oh, I'm sorry

I give You my heart, my mind, my soul, my praise, Hallelujah

Romans 12:1 says, "I beseech you therefore brethren
By the mercies of God that ye present your bodies
A living sacrifice, holy, which is your job unto God
It is your job to give him everything, every part of you”

I give You my heart, my mind, my soul, my praise, my money
It all belongs to the Father, I give it all to You

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~ Romans 5:8

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Interestingly, the Bible doesn't ever just say that God loves us. Instead, it says: "God demonstrated his love..." "In this is love, not that we loved God but that God loved us and gave..." "For God so loved the world that he gave..." Love is more than emotion or intention. True love, redemptive love, God-styled love is active; it does something. For us, Jesus did more than something; he sacrificed everything. What's more, he did it when we most needed it. He demonstrated his love when we were sinners! ~ PW

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. ~ Hebrews 11:6

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

And just why do we serve God? ... Fear? ... Sense of obligation? ... Because our parents did? How about because we want to please God and bring the Father joy? How about because of we believe in what God has done and will do for us? We believe that God sent his Son Jesus to die for our sins so we can be forgiven, cleansed, and adopted as his children into his forever family. What's more, we believe that God longs to share his blessings with us and loves to reward those who believe in his grace and love. We believe and so we earnestly, diligently, and passionately seek him! -PW
