"Be My All"

Dr. Jim Berg, the former Dean of Students at Bob Jones University has written several books that have greatly blessed me over the years. Changed Into His Image, God is More Than Enough, and the DVD series Quieting a Noisy Soul have all been instrumental in my Christian life. One of the reoccuring themes in all of these works is that God is our all; that He is more than enough for our every need. This new song, "Be My All" is a prayer to the Lord, asking Him to "be my all."

"Be My All"

When I'm living in the shadows
Of my foolish sinful mind,
When I've lost sight of Your meadows,
Let me there Your goodness find.


Be my all, Lord Jesus all
More than enough for me.
Restore me when I fall;
Let me Your nature see.

All sufficient for each need,
You are the gracious King.
You are good in word and good in deed;
It is Your grace that I sing.

Father, break me of my own will;
Send me now and I will go.
Let me serve You and Your plan fulfill;
Then Your godness I will show.

  1. Hi :) I really like this one! "Father break me of my own will." I think that needs to be a daily prayer. The other day during devotions, I read the verse that says, "delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." I was thinking about it, and I think that goes hand in hand with being broken of our own will. I think when we delight ourselves in the Lord, our attitude toward life, ourselves, God, and others changes and His will becomes our will. And life becomes so much more meaningful and colorful.

  2. Thanks Jane. God has been showing me that, yes; when we delight ourselves in the Lord He will give us the desires of our heart. There's an old hymn that says "Hast thou no seen how all thy longings have been granted in what He ordaineth." Delighting in Him certainly does necessitate the breaking of our own wills. Thanks for the comment!
