What Is Important?



It's not what You do for me,

but in me.

It's not what I own,

but that You own me.

It's not what You allow around me,

but what You do through me.


I don't want to live by feelings,

but by faith.

I don't want to live in pride,

but in prayer.

I don't want to live for myself,

but for my Savior.


My life should not be controlled

by circumstances,

by people

or by self,

but by the Holy Spirit.


For this to be a reality in my life,

that what is important, Lord.
