God of mercy, sweet love of mine
I am surrendered to your design
Excerpt from “Multiplied” by Needtobreathe
Dear God, I was watching a slideshow of a mission trip to Mexico on Sunday, and this was one of the songs that came on. I really like it, and I decided to take a listen to it this morning to see if anything caught my ear, so to speak. What I noticed was the idea of being surrendered to your design.
I wonder what my life would look like if your plan was to let me have my design for my life and the lives around me. If I had that much control how much worse would things be, for me and everyone around me? It’s not that things are perfect now, but if my selfish will were able to change your will and design then the world would certainly be a worse place. And I would be a worse person. My soul is healthiest when I am letting go of my agenda and surrendering to your design.
Father, I need your mercy to guide me. I need more and more humility as I strive to find your perfect plan for my life. That plan might cost me something. It might cost me everything. If so, help me to sing, “God of mercy, sweet love of mine, I am surrendered to your design.”
In Jesus’ name I pray,
