Get Me Out of My Own Way

Side tracked
Scatter brained
Unable to focus
Blurred lines remain
Seeking Your Kingdom
Thy will be done
In my life, Lord
Father, Spirit, Son
Show me the right path
Set my footing free
To follow You, Lord
Wherever You lead

You know my heart
The places where I struggle
Save me from myself, Lord
Keep me out of trouble
I tend to want vindication
When others do me wrong
But only You avenge, Lord
Getting even…is not my song
Teach me to forgive, Lord
To let go of yesterday’s trash
The feelings, emotions and actions
That bubble up like black gold from the past

Keep my mind honed on thoughts from above
Steer me through the storms of life…mooring solely on Your Love
Anchor my heart to the cross
Where You died to set me free
A greater love no man has shown
Like the “love” You’ve shown to me
I want to be worthy of the blood You shed
Long ago at Calvary
Get me out of my own way, Lord
So, You can have Thine Own Way in me
