Love is not a feeling; it is a gift, an act, an ultimate sacrifice. -Me (Em)

Dear God, I’ll take Your crown of thorns
When broken are my Devil’s horns.
Will You please help me have them shorn?
Your cross with my hands I’ll make worn.

Oh— Ooh—
Thank— You—

You know I yearn to stop Life’s race,
And live to a diff-er-ent pace
My journey, with Your hands, please trace;
Show me the path to your good Grace.

Oh— Ooh—
Thank— You—

Oh Lord, I’ll take Your crown of thorns,
When my life’s without pride or scorn.
Give me the heart to be reborn—
One between Sin and You not torn.

Oh— Ooh—
Thank— You—

Oh— Ooh—

I wrote this in June of 2008 while in the midst of doubting that I could serve God as a terrible sinner. The good news is that I still am a terrible sinner, but He has taken the broken pieces of my life to create a mosaic of astonishing beauty. May He be praised! <3 Matthew 14:23-32.
