My heart

You are good, you are good, when there's nothing good in me.
You are love, you are love, on display for all to see.
You are light, you are light, when the darkness closes in.
You are hope, you are hope, You have covered all my sin.

You are peace, you are peace, when my fear is crippling.
You are true, you are true, even in my wondering.
You are joy, you are joy, You're the reason that I sing.
You are life, you are life, In you death has lost its sting.

Oh, I'm running to your arms I'm running to your arms.
The riches of your love will always be enough.
Nothing compares to your embrace, light of the world forever reign.

You are more, you are more, than my words will ever say.
You are Lord, you are Lord, all creation will proclaim.
You are here, you are here, in your prescence I'm made whole.
You are God, you are God, of all else I'm letting go.

Today, Lord, I need you to be good. So good that I forget my bad. I need you to be love. I feel unlovable. I need you to be light. So bright that I reflect some of you. And I need you to be hope. Because I feel like giving up.

Today, Lord, I need you to be true. I need you to be peace. I need you to be joy. I need you to be life. I want to sing from the mountaintops, for no other reason then because you have fulfilled those things in my life.

And most importanly, Lord, I need you to be here. I need you to be more, and I need you to be God. I am not sure I can let it go on my own. Help release the things I hold so tightly in my grasp. I want to be more like you.

Today, my Jesus, I run to the comfort of your arms. You love me unconditionally, and I feel safe. Sustain me, grow me, and make me uncomfortable. I want more of you and less of me. I love you, but I want to love you more.

Amen! i echo that prayer.

P.S. I hate warm fruit too, but I actually kind of like this cobbler. Sometimes I eat like a bite of the fruit with alot of the crusty cobbler part and sometimes I just don't eat the fruit at all. The juice on the crusty cobble tastes so good. You should totally try it!!
