Heights Unknown

Tame

1 John 5:14-15
New Living Translation (NLT)

14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. 15 And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.


Might Think Me Tame

Cowboys ride on wild broncos
Race drivers speed around the track
Explorers go to far off places
Most days I just have a Big Mac

Singers perform to wild applause
Dancers spin and wow the crowd
Writers’ words gain much acclaim
I have to watch how many calories I’m allowed

Architects build mansions to the sky
Engineers construct roads galore
Artists paint pictures that impress
I have to work hard to get up off the floor

But there is a claim to fame I hold
It makes me feel so fine
Each day I get to talk to a king
Who says He is a friend of mine

Doesn’t take some special protocol
I don’t need to call ahead
I just start telling Him what’s on my mind
And He listens to every word I’ve said

And why He does it, I don’t know
But He answers my every request
Maybe not how I wished He would
But how it would turn out best

So keep your glamorous lifestyle
Enjoy your time in the bright spotlight
Just give me time to talk to the king
From morning’s break till the last thing at night

Father,

What a joy to talk with You. To come before Your throne and know that I am welcome. Please help me to live that I might find favor with You.
