Less is More

david and goliathAs I’m sitting here working on my essays for my application to a christian school and pondering Romans 12:1-2 this song comes on. Ironic I guess. I’m applying for college. Giving up my decent $30k/yr comfortable job to become a poor college student. Giving up my friends and family here in Iowa to persue where I feel God is leading me. And yet some how I feel like I’m not doing enough for him. I don’t know what else to do. So yeah this song hit me kind of square and  I felt I needed to share it with every one. I pray all of my brothers and sisters in him live this song.

Jesus, I pray
Take all my mistakes
Throw them away
Destroy them for my sake

Jesus, I call out ’cause I’m sorry
Because I fall so short of your glory
To the best of my ability
I’m practicing humility
And I lay myself before
‘Cause less is more

All that I have
I lay before
With my pride on the floor
Cause to you less is more
All that I have
I lay before
With my pride on the floor
Cause to you less is more

I pour out myself
All that I am
You love me so much
That you fill me again
And may these words on my heart, on my lips
Somehow mean so much more than this

Jesus, I pray
Know what I’m trying to say

All that I have
I lay before
With my pride on the floor
‘Cause to you less is more
All that I have
I lay before
With my pride on the floor
Cause to you less is more

I pour out myself, before you, oh Lord
I hold nothing back, ’cause to you less is more
And may these words on my heart on my lips,
Somehow mean so much more than this

Jesus, I pray
Just know what I’m tryin’ to say

Jesus, I plead
Please purify me
Make my heart clean
Drench me with your mercy
Jesus, I pray
I love you, I need you
For the rest of my days
I swear I will seek you
To the best of my ability
I’m practicing humility
And I lay myself before
‘Cause less is more.
