Slow Me Down Lord, Help Calm My Fears

Slow Me Down Lord, Help Calm My Fears

2 Timothy 4:3
There will come a time when people won’t listen to the truth
But will go around looking for teachers who will tell them just what they want to hear
They won’t listen to what the Bible says, but will blithely follow their own misguided ideas


Oh dear Lord, please help me see, that what I think
I want most in life, might not be good for me
For as long, on this earth, I'm humanly clad
The desires of the flesh can make me sad

Please help erase this restlessness within
And help me start all over again
So that now I may focus more on thee
And live my life less selfishly

For no matter what it is I think I want
When I get it, I realize that I really don't
For still, there's something missing, this longing inside
A restlessness within me that never subsides

I know that to have contentment; that feeling of sublime
That, You Lord, must be first and foremost on my mind
So Lord, I beg of you this day
To come into my life, and help change my selfish ways

Slow me down Lord, help calm my fears
So that when you speak to me, I may willingly hear
Then when I hear you Lord, I shall finally see
That what I thought I wanted most in life, was indeed, not good for me

1 John 2:15-16
Stop loving this evil world and all that it offers you, for when you love these things
You show that you really do not love God. For all these worldly things, these evil desires
The craze for sex, the ambition to buy everything that appeals to you, and the pride that comes
From wealth and importance ... these are not from God
