Dedicating the Day

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Good morning, Lord. This day is Thine;
For it was really only mine
To render, Father, back to Thee
In full surrender, joyfully.
So take each moment of this day,
And bend it to Thy will, I pray;
That all my thoughts and words would be
A sweet aroma, Lord, to Thee;
And that the things I do, oh Lord,
Would not be of my own accord;
But that, like Jesus, I could say
I only did Thy will, today.
For that is how each day should be –
Surrendered, wholly, Lord to Thee.
[Jesus example]
“I can of mine own self do nothing…
because I seek not mine own will,
but the will of the Father who hath sent me.”
John 5:30
