Reign In Us

We've been singing a song at church for the past couple of weeks, Reign In Us, and I can't seem to ever get to lyrics out of my head. The Lord speaks through me a lot through music, especially when the lyrics speak SO much truth into my life! Since returning from Egypt a few weeks ago, I've been constantly in prayer for what the Lord desires for my life, and these lyrics are close to what I've been praying for. My one desire for my life is that Christ would reign in my life all the days of my life. I want to offer my life as a living sacrifice for that very purpose. I've had a lot of thoughts these past few weeks about my future, thoughts that make me just want to pray, thoughts that are scary, thoughts that can be stressful, thoughts that keep me up at night, thoughts that get me pumped, thoughts of things I never even dreamed of for my life. I know that Christ desires more than the ordinary for my life. I'm sorting through what that's supposed to look like. I can't pray to go somewhere, and I can't pray to stay here, all I can pray is for the Lord's will. I am willing and ready to go all in God's timing. I can rest in the fact that I know the Lord has complete control over my life. He is the King that reigns, and I'm just a girl trying to follow His will. Join me in prayer!

Reign In Us - Starfield

You thought of us before the world began to breathe
You knew our names before we came to be
You saw the very day we'd fall away from you
And how desperately we need to be redeemed

Lord Jesus come lead us
We're desperate for your touch

Oh Great and Mighty One with one desire we come
That you would reign that you would reign in us
We're offering up our lives a living sacrifice
That you would reign that you would reign in us

Spirit of the Living God fall fresh again
Come search our hearts and purify our lives
We need your perfect love
We need your discipline
We're lost unless you guide us with your light

We cry out
For your love to refine us cry out
For your love to define us cry out
For your mercy to keep us blameless until you return

So reign please reign in us
Come purify our hearts we need your touch
Come cleanse us like a flood and send us out
So the world may know you reign you reign in us
