Nowhere Without You



Just this today,

Just these thoughts from this Tuesday,

Thoughts inspired by Scripture read,

Thoughts about how I want to live.


Nowhere Without You 
Exodus 33:12-18

My Strength,
My Hope,
All that
I know.

My LIfe,
My Song,
To You I
Belong.

And I have done
Absolutely nothing
Worthy of You.

And I am
Absolutely not
Deserving of You.

But You set me apart,
Your hands mold and shape my heart.

If I could find
Some favor in Your sight,
Unworthy as I am,
I would humbly ask
That You would lead,
That You'd walk with me.

My Lord,
My God,
The One I
Count on.

Each breath,
Each step,

Every
Moment.

I don't deserve
Even just a glance,
But You see me anyway.

I haven't earned
Anything at all,
But You offer grace.

And You're alive in me,
Worth more than the air I breathe.

If I could find
Some favor in Your sight,
Unworthy as I am,
I would humbly ask
That You would not make me leave
Unless You'll go with me.

Lord, I want to follow through,
But I can't make it without You,
So, in all I say and do,
Let me move and breathe in You.

I'll go nowhere without You.
I'll go nowhere without You.
I'll go nowhere without You.
I'll go nowhere without You.

So true that we can't follow through, can't make it without Him in the following through He calls us to do. Prayers for your journey with Him.

Hi, Sylvia!
I'm so glad this spoke to you, these few words hurriedly jotted down. Yet how I need to remember this! Prayers for you, too. God bless!
