We sang this in church on Sunday, and I was so touched by the words. It became a prayer, my prayer. And being an emotional pregnant woman, I cried, to the amusement of my family.
I was going to highlight the lines that spoke to me most, but each part is so powerful. I wish I knew how to add music to my blog, because I'd add this song.
"May the Words of my Mouth" (Psalm 19) by Tim Hughes
May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart
Bless Your name, bless Your name, Jesus
And the deeds of the day and the truth in my ways
Speak of You, speak of You, Jesus
For this is what I'm glad to do
It's time to live a life of love that pleases You
And I will give my all to You
Surrender everything I have and follow You
I'll follow You
Lord, will You be my vision, Lord, will You be my guide
Be my hope, be my light and the way
And I'll look not for riches, nor praises on earth
Only You'll be the first of my heart
I will follow
I will follow
I will follow You
"Lord, please let every word of my mouth, every thought, and every action bless Your Name and speak of Your presence in my life. Help me to live a life of love, and not selfishness. Help me to focus on serving You, and those You have placed in my life, without thought for gain or praise. Change my priorities, Lord. Help me to follow You, and put You first in my life. May my husband, my children, and my neighbors see You in me. Forgive me for all the times my words and actions have not blessed Your Name, for the times they have grieved You. Change me, Lord, and make me more like You. Amen."
Trusting in Him,
