Note to Retain, Not for Gain. 22NOV – #1312

Standard

(From a presentation that they wanted us to make a “Note for gain” – but I know our loss and His gain is what I wanted to retain. This is a ‘Not for Gain note to Retain’)

Note to Retain 

Gain more Him, and be less me.

Why does He wants me to be free of me? TO SEE.

Free of me means more free to follow Thee.

Lord, it is better by me to be with Thee.

Our time together should not surprise me. 

You free me of my agenda, I can plainly see.

Whom might You lead me to see?

Let me TRUST, let Your Path LEAD me.

My journey is nothing without Thee.

Gain more Him, and be less me.

Blessed are those in Your court we see.

Blessed Blessed are favor and honor from Thee

Amen

Psalm 84

How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar,  Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

Hear my prayer, Lord God Almighty; listen to me, God of Jacob.  Look on our shield, O God; look with favor on your anointed one.

Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.

Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.
