Set Apart

Lord, teach me how to purpose
In my heart of hearts
To live in true obedience
As those You’ve set apart
And help me not to lean upon
The things that I can see
But to trust your promises
To be the power in me

My understanding at its best
Is but an earth-dimmed view
I would have no righteousness
If I did not have You
Then teach me how to humbly walk
In precepts of Your word
Make my witness more than talk
As I bow to You, Lord

Your Word; a faithful life-line
Upon this troubled sea
A beacon, holy and divine
To keep and comfort me
I would become so careless, Lord
Without this precious guide
For as I feed upon Your word
I feel You at my side


Don’t be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows. Luke 12:7

In these uncertain times His word is certain!

…and what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God. Micah. 6:8

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. James 1:22

1 Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, 2with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, 3being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; 5one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all. Ephes. 4: 1-5
