Have Your Way, O LORD: A Poem


This week I want to share the following poem with you as we are preparing to release our new Bible study compilation, Heart Renovation: A Construction Guide to Godly Character. Just like a homeowner has to open up his house to a renovation team, we have to open our hearts to God for Him to work in us and conform us to Christ’s likeness. This poem was first published in the Fruit of the Spirit issue of Refresh, which was the basis of Heart Renovation.

 

“Prepare the way of the LORD,

Make His paths straight.

Every valley shall be filled

And every mountain and hill brought low;

The crooked places shall be made straight

And the rough ways smooth.”

Luke 3:4-5 NKJV

 

I can dream, but I don’t know

Of all the beauty You want to show,

Of who You are and what You can do

In a life that’s totally committed to You.

An Upcoming Release: Heart Renovation

 

Whoo-hoo!! God gave us a double blessing this week.


Just as we were finishing our group’s new compilation, Heart Renovation: A Construction Guide to Godly Character, we learned that our 2017 compilation is a finalist in the Selah Awards at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. Breaking the Chains: Strategies for Overcoming Spiritual Bondage is a finalist in the Bible Studies category. What a blessing!


Our new compilation will be released next month. Heart Renovation is written by thirty authors and has sixty article-length Bible studies. This encouraging and insightful book is a warm-hearted powerhouse of a study on growing in Christlikeness. It is full of strategies that help us to implement the principles of heart renovation and to overcome its hindrances. The book has already affected my heart, and I can’t wait to share it with the world!
