Cottage-by-the-Sea #22 8/11/12

Abba Father:
You’re in Heaven and Your Spirit is here,
You’re in my heart and others as well.
I lift up my praise to You this day,
Will You please draw this daughter near?

Rolling out onto the beach, tracks in the sand,
My heart thirsts to want Your will,
As real here on this Earth,
As the scars on Your feet and hands.

Father, forgive me this day of any sin I’ve committed,
Any sin remind me, I’ll confess it!
I’ll freely forgive those who’ve hurt me,
After all the forgiveness You’ve demonstrated.

The ocean breaks waves bold and free,
Taunting me to come in and play,
But it’s a temptation I cannot give in to,
Please Abba, keep temptation from me.

Off the coast there’s a storm gathering strength,
It’ll be here within hours it’s clear.
Deliver me even now from the fear traps of Satan,
Like how far inland it’s reach will be in length.

Keep me calm, direct my path and wheelchair,
Bind Satan and all his deceptions,
I love this Cottage-by-the-Sea,
But I know You may need me more “out there”,

And I’m willing to go where You can get me,
Willing to place my life on the line,
Many will face today a storm they can’t find,
Looking with their dulled and blinded eyes.

Maybe these words will touch a chord,
Maybe this prayer You’ll use to prick a heart,
Whatever the case God please let me,
Use my last ounce of strength to point to You, Lord.
