and all things else recede
O Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me,
And all things else recede;
My heart be daily nearer Thee,
From sin be daily freed.
Make this poor self grow less and less
Be Thou my life and aim;
Oh, make me daily, through Thy grace,
More worthy of Thy name.
(By Rev. J.C. Lavater in the 1800's)
Something to consider: God wants to redeem every area and aspect of your life. Our Holy Father is preparing us for eternity, and in doing this, "He must increase, but I (we) must decrease" (John 3:30 HCSB)
Let's let God work in our lives and accept His leading with trust and open hearts.
