It can be so hard to give up everything. Completely. But it's so necessary to do so. we need to give our Life, time, energy, talents etc. to God for Him to use as He wishes. This is a song that puts it perfectly I think. When I first heard the song I didn't appreciate it very well, it made me feel sort of guilty but now that I have accepted what it was/is trying to tell me I am thankful & am challenged to give more of myself to Him daily, He is the reason I live!
More Of Me
All the riches one could gain
All the ever glad refrain
All the glory yet untold
All the love the heart can hold
CHORUS: He has given all to me
All I'll ever need
And it's not that I need more of God
But He needs more of me
More of time time I waste each day
More unceasing when I pray
More my heart my mind & soul
More of all to His control
We are constantly faced with times when we want to hang on for dear life to the things we call "ours".
(dreams, talents, attitudes etc.) Let's remember that it's not us who need more, but GOD!
