Open My Eyes

I don't have a clue what the Lord's plans are for me. I feel like this is really something the Lord is working on in me, because I trust Him, but I have a really hard time living in the present and not thinking about what my future holds. I always want to know what's going to happen, but the Lord has really been teaching me to rely on Him. It's hard and is taking an everyday reminder to die to myself and listen to Him for every next step. So just as some encouragement to any of you out there struggling with the same thing, He will direct you. He promises it in Proverbs 3:5-6 and also says in John 14:14 that "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it."

"Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths."
-Proverbs 3:5-6 AMP

"And He said to all, If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, refuse and give up himself] and take up his cross daily and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also]."
-Luke 9:23 AMP

"Open My Eyes" (Hillsong United)

Saviour of my soul
I worship You as God alone
Greater love has made a way to You

I could not forget
The moment I in faith confessed
For my sin You died and rose again

I believe every word You say
Father God with all my heart I sing

Open my eyes
I want to see Your glory Your glory Lord
I open my heart
I want to be closer closer to You

Here I am again
I find my strength in drawing near
You have heard the desperate cry in me

And as I wait on You my God
I'll know the voice of truth
In quietness I am in awe
And as I worship You my Lord
I understand the cross
The sacrifice of God
