In Other Words Tuesday


“Order my steps, in Your word,Order my tongue, in Your word,Guide my feet, in Your word,Wash my heart, in Your word,Show me how to walk, in Your word,Show me how to talk, in Your word.(refrain)I want to walk worthy, my calling to fulfill,Please order my steps, Lord, and I’ll do Your blessed will,The world is ever changing, but You are still the same If You order my steps, I’ll praise Your name.~~A hymn by Glen Burleigh~: Such beautiful, heartfelt words. These words are how I feel. Lord, I want You to always order my steps, lead me where You want me. I want my entire body to be totally washed in Your precious word. I want to walk Your way, talk Your way, my heart wants to match Your heartbeat. I want to live in perfect harmony with You Lord. When I try to do things on my own, in my own way, I get totally lost. I wander off of the path that You have made for my life, and start heading down a deep dark path of unknown obstacles, fear and doubt set in quickly. But, I praise You for always finding me, when I cry out Your blessed name. You run to my side, lovingly turn me around, and lead me back home. I love You Lord, by Your side, is where I long to forever stay.
