So I yield to You and to Your careful hand
When I trust You I don’t need to understand
Make me Your vessel
Make me an offering
Make me whatever You want me to be
I came here with nothing
But all You have given me
Jesus, bring new wine out of me
In the crushing
In the pressing
You are making
In the soil, I
You are breaking
We all make choices
We strive for answers
Are you gonna follow your heart and listen to the One who knows?
We all have problems
And we can’t solve them
Forgive me when I say
Everything will be okay
Lean on Him
Decisions to be made
Your past will surely fade
It’s all your choice
You are what you feel you are
Look in that mirror and claim your beauty
And sometimes loved ones say hurtful things
Sometimes your friends don’t understand the happiness inside you that gives you wings
Sometimes you are called to a higher purpose that you don’t understand
Sometimes you need to lean on your creator to hold your hand
And sometimes you just need to be left alone
It’s all right; hold on tight
Don’t give up the fight
Your situation is parallel to mine but opposite at the same time
We may not understand what the other person is going through, but I’m sure we can still relate
“My friends told me to this, but I don’t want to do that”
We all have feelings
We crave acceptance
Who is it that you want to please?
What is it that gives you love and security?
Where is your judgement?
Why do you feel sorrow?
And in this time, He’s said, “you’re mine”
When will you allow this to become your truth?
Lean on Him
Fire: Burning the old, igniting the new “I lay down my old flames. To carry your new fire today” – Hillsong
Do not be conformed to this world,[a] but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. [Romans 12:2]
Have you heard about the miraculous story that recently happened in Thailand where 12 boys and a soccer coach who were trapped in a cave were rescued from volunteers and experts all over the world?
“Divers compared it to mountain climbing — but in tight, pitch-black spaces and buffeted by swirling floodwaters, towing a child.
They had to guide their charges through passages as narrow as a couple of feet, weighed down by bulky equipment. A diver in front led the way, with a boy tethered to him and another diver following behind.
Each arduous round-trip extraction took between nine and 11 hours.
The Thai navy SEALs added in a Facebook post: “We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what.””

God’s miracles are everywhere we look and the air we breathe. As the world remains amazed by this miracle, I can’t help but ask the question: where has God been moving in your life? When has God dove through tight circumstances to rescue you from drowning in the water of sins and sorrow? When did God call people to save you from uncomfortable circumstances?
No matter the size (complex or simple), if we reflect on our lives, I believe we can discover that He has provided miraculous transformations inside all of us. Maybe He is working on a miracle for you right now. The same God that rescued 13 people after 9 days of no food, drink, or comfortable shelter can dwell inside of you, if you allow Him to and accept Him into your life.
