I am completely surrendering
Finally giving You everything
You’re my redeemer, I run to the cross
Because You are more than enough
Lord complete me
Cause I’m Yours completely
These lyrics to the new song, Completely, by Among The Thirsty (which is a great name for a band, by the way) speak right to my heart!!! This song makes me stop and raise my hands and give it up one more time. Give up the struggles and the hurt in my heart. Give up my need for control. Surrender myself to God, yet again… Because, for me, it’s a daily process. And every time I do this, I can feel God shaping me more and more into His image… Into the woman He created me to be.
Among The Thirsty has another song, one of my all-time favorites, called I’d Need a Savior. These guys don’t put out a lot of music, but when they do, it’s the most worshipful and prayerful music I’ve heard anyplace.
How many names can I use to explain the love of my Jesus,
the life that he gave and so many times will I praise you today.
I lift up my life ‘cause you’re always the same
And my offering to you I bring
Your name is Jesus. Your name is Jesus.
You’re the Wonderful, Counselor, my Friend.
You’re what I hold on to; I know that you brought me through
All the days of loss, to the cross you knew I’d need a Savior
Father God, thank you for the gift of your son Jesus Christ and the sacrifice he made for me. You knew I’d need a savior. Lord, take me and use me. I’m yours completely.
Go here to listen to Completely.
Go here to listen to I’d Need a Savior.
