just for today


Father God, just for today
Help me walk Your narrow way.
Help me stand when I might fall.
Give me strength to hear your call.

Here I am just for today.
Live in me, have Your way,
For my desire when this race is run
Is only to hear You say, "Well done!"

May my steps be worship.
May my thoughts be praise.
May my words bring honor to your name.
May my steps be worship.
May my thoughts be praise.
May my words bring honor to your name

That's one of my favorite songs, Courtney! I love the lyrics and the concept of asking God to help and work in us just one day at a time.

I love that song too and I like to just read those words and realizing what I am saying when I sing it!
I love the lyrics...

And guess what else??? ..... I LOVE YOU! ;-)

Amy: It's one of my favorites, too. And I think this is a concept that we Christians often forget: that we're to ask not for our yearly bread or even our monthly or weekly bread...but for our daily bread. Only for what we need today. And I think that applies to asking for spiritual "bread," too.

Ja-9: It's so important for us to pay attention to what we're singing when we're singing! I forget that too often... But how can a song possibly change me if I don't listen to the words?

Thanks for the good reminder, Nine! I love you, too!
