A Heart that Saved the Best

Communion 2

Remember, You said with broken bread and common cup held high.
Believe… not just once sometime years ago, but today, in this day’s sound and fury
That the gift that You gave for lost hearts of stone (like mine)
Hasn’t gone anywhere – it’s still as alive today as You are.
So never let me forget the supreme price, the steadfast love, the faithful offering
That forever changed my heart of stone to gold… to joy… to peace.

And oh…
That You would find me when I was hopelessly lost…
That You would have known me when I was so clueless and unknowable…
That You would touch the untouchable parts of me, not just once but repeatedly…
I can only hope that what You find, know, and touch on this day
Is a heart that saved the best of me for You.

To have a life You described as abundant, eternal, and overcoming…
To hold on to the finest of what is pure and lovely and praiseworthy…
To think on the things that are true and noble and right…
This is why I come to you again and again in faith and surrender –
Because You love those things into my life every day,
And You do for me and in me and through me what I simply can’t.

And oh…
That You would find me when I was hopelessly lost…
That You would have known me when I was so clueless and unknowable…
That You would touch the untouchable parts of me, not just once but repeatedly…
I can only hope that what You find, know, and touch on this day
Is a heart that saved the best of me for You.

It is exactly why I come to Him in faith and surrender . . . so inspiring, Andy. You always tell it like it is in ways that stretch me to honor my faith in the Lord more and more. Thank you, my friend, thank you , , ,
