My Lord, you call me to submit,
Not as one who is under your thumb;
Nor as a wormly creature beneath your feet.
But as your dearly beloved,
Friend, daughter, sister, bride.

In love, you invite submission
By calling me to walk by your side,
And seating me in heavenly places.
Partaking of your victory;
Saved, redeemed, reborn, free.


So, my Lord, I tell you, “Yes.”
I submit to you with affection;
Reflecting your glory as I live,
Safe in your everlasting arms;
Loved, fulfilled, joyful, blessed.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
