My Prayer...

Many a times we feel we know more...we know better...and we think we are strong, until we falter mid-air. The past weeks provided me a good grasp of what I want with my life...and with God's grace, I am slowly making my way there.

Proverbs 3:5 is a great reminder to all of us to trust and lift everything up to Him...

The song being played is title Take Me Out of the Dark, My Lord by a local artist named Gary Valenciano.

I love this song so much...and the words are my prayer today...

Mp3 Codes @

Just what is it in me?
Sometimes I just don't know
What keeps me in Your love,
Why you never let me go

This is how great God's love is! And this show much He loves us!

And though you're in me now,
I fall and hurt you still
My Lord, please show me how
To know just how you feel

For the times I have been weak, selfish, He did not abandon me...
He will never abandon us.

You have forgiven me
Too many times it seems
I feel I'm not what you might call
A worthy Christian after all
And though I love You so
Temptation finds its way to me

Lord please deliver me from all forms of temptation.
Strengthen my heart oh Lord.

Teach me to trust in You
With all my heart
To lean not on my own understanding
I just forget
You won't give me what I can't bear

Lord, remind me everyday to lean not on my own understanding but to trust YOU with all of my heart.

Take me out of the dark, my Lord
I don't wanna be there

It is through the Lord's mercy that I'm able to stand through test of times.
Thank you Lord for being my light...

You've never left my side
You gave Your hand to me to hold
Oh Jesus, I'm no longer in the cold

You carried me through and weathered every storm that came my way...
I love you Lord.

And yet, I leave You there
When I feel satisfied
I'd like to thank You every day
Not only when I feel that way

Thank you Lord for the blessings you have showered family and friends. I also thank you for the gift of WFW community through which I have found comfort and joy!

I've never known a Man
Who'd give His life for sinners like me
And yet, because He loves us so
He's promised us eternity
And we can have that promise
And be His if we have faith
And just believe


Teach us to trust in you
With all my heart
To lean not on my own understanding
We just forget
You won't give us what we can't bear

I thank you for all the wonderful opportunities you have given me...
To know love's pain and pleasures...
To understand life's disappointment and successes...
The value of family and friends...
The real meaning of generosity and compassion...
To live the life you wanted me to have!

Take us out of the dark, My Lord
'Cause we don't want to be alone
Take me out of the dark, My Lord
We don't wanna be there, My Lord

Trust in You with all my heart
Lean not on my own understanding
I just forget
You won't give me what I can't bear

Take me out of the dark, My Lord
Cause we don't want to be alone
Take me out of the dark, My Lord
I don't want to be there

And as you have created the heavens and earth and made us into your image, teach us to discern your hand in all your works in your likeness in all your Jesus name, Amen.

Please join us in celebrating His words at Word Filled Wednesday!

AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! That was simply beautiful!

Prov. 3:5-8 was the very first verse I was told 3.5 yrs ago. It has been the verse that got me through many things since coming to Christ. I love the power of that verse and the deep truths of it set me free every time I read or say it.

God bless!

I am a living monument to how bad things can get messed up in a girl's life when we DON'T trust in Him and we DO lean on our own understanding! How He has worked the last months to fix the mess I had made!
