The Simple Life

I Asked


I asked You to heal them

You asked; what if I don’t?

I asked for a new item

You asked; what if it’s not time?

===

I asked for more

You asked; do you really need more?

I asked for a child

You asked; what if you don’t need one?

===

I asked for a car,

You asked; why do you need one?

I asked for a house,

You asked; why do you need one?

===

I asked for new friends

You asked; do you really need them?

I asked for a new position

You asked; how will you use it for me?

===

You have me baffled Papa

Every time I ask for something

You counter it all with a strange question

Have I missed something?

===

What do I need to understand?

What do I need to see?

What gaps do I have in my views?

Are my expectations on track?

===

What is on Your heart for me?

Who do You see me become?

Where do You see me standing?

How will I influence the world for you?

===

I know You are a loving father

I know You are a just God

I know You are interested in my good

I know You are love personified

===

I know You are all wise

I know You are able

I know You are teaching me

I know Your plan is good

===

Help me understand the path

Clear my thinking to rise to Yours

Open my inner eyes to see

Open my inner ears to hear

===

Teach me to number my days

Teach me to number my thoughts

Teach me to number my emotions

Teach me to number my words

===

Teach me to walk in Your liberty

Teach me to trust in Your plan

Teach me to be devoted in spite of it all

Teach me to love as You do.
