Break my will to match Yours

 

       

      Lord, when You come in the form of a trial,
      no matter how small, like
      the disappointment of having someone
      disagree with me and
      facing rejection from those I love;
      when I know that I am in the right
      and am blamed for what is wrong,
      when I have worked hard
      to make things pleasant,
      yet meet with criticisms of
      what might have been;
      when the expectancy of waiting
      seems to have no end,
      and I see others enjoy blessings
      I pray to have a share in, Oh, Lord,
      make it easy for my will to conform to Yours.

      For doing Your will involves
      a wrenching and a tearing apart
      of self-love.
      My will cracks, and in the cracking
      becomes whole again
      while it yields to Yours.
      Oh, God, the process is painful
      while it lasts.

      But no sooner do I yield to Your pleasure
      than you unlock the torrent of joy!
      What surging wave of peace You bring!
      What overwhelming power of being free
      while it lasts.

      If this be a way of union with You, Lord,
      Let my will conform to Yours,
      no matter what the pain and the price,
      that I may be one with You
      in everything I do.

      Lord, this is my wish,
      Write it in Your heart
      as I write it in mine.
