I drop those things I grasp in my hand and place My hands in Yours.
 I pull my eyes from those things I hold precious and turn my gaze towards Your glory.

I release my affections from others, from acceptance, so my heart is free to seek You without distraction.

For when you are more precious than all else, more real to me than all else and when I love You more than any other—then shall I know complete satisfaction.

Not that You desire I be stripped of earthly pleasures, but that the wellspring of blessings called peace, hope and joy may flow.

For only when seeking first the Kingdom of Heaven—in giving wholly my hearts affections—shall You meet every need, heal every pain, nurture every seedling, water every desert!

I have Your promise that when I seek I shall find; and Your promises are sure...they shall never pass away.

Soli Deo Gloria!
