Before I bring my need, I will bring my heart
Before I lift my cares, I will lift my arms
I wanna know You, I wanna find You
In every season, in every moment
Before I bring my need, I will bring my heart and seek You
I wanna seek you, I wanna keep you
More than anything I want, I wanna seek You First
Before I speak a word let me hear Your voice
And in the midst of pain let me feel your joy
You are treasure and my reward
Let nothing ever come before I seek You FIRST
(Excerpts from "First" by Lauren Daigle)
I was reminded once again, this morning, that it is all about Him, not all about me. How often I forget this. I don't want to forget, but my own sin, desires and selfishness get the better of me. It is a constant conflict. Mark 12:38 tells us to beware that when we serve ourselves, we are the losers. Our resolution to this conflict is submission to God. This is the place where I want to be. Praise the Lord for His patience, love and forgiveness as I wade through this journey called life. I want to seek Him and let nothing ever come before I seek Him FIRST!
