Here I Am

Giving yourself up for Christ can really hurt at times, but to see His face and know His grace is worth every bit of the pain.

Here I Am

You know
It hurts;
You know
My flesh avoids the pain;
But here I am,
So take my life
And make a glowing flame;

You know
I’m weak;
You know
This can’t be done alone,
So here I am,
’Cause all I want
I find before Your throne;

You know
My heart;
You know
I’m longing for Your grace,
So here I am,
And here I’ll stay—
I’m here to see Your face.

(c) 2005 Benjamin Graber

This is my repeated prayer, the desire of my heart, that God "take my life and make it a glowing flame." Painful, yes, but all I want I DO find before His throne. Peace, love, joy . . . it's indescribable. You are a wonderful poet.

Wow! Beautiful! Indeed, the pain that comes with taking up the cross of Christ is worth it because of the joy that He alone can give. :)
