Lose myself to find Christ

I was inspired by this song, “Lose myself by TobyMac” and God revealed a lot of things to me. So here’s the lyrics:

Take all of the good and all of the bad
‘Cause all of it’s on me
Take all of my ways, the things that I chase
The things that control me

And all that I hide, could You bring it to life?
Could You open my eyes and show me?
Take all that was me and shape it to be
Reflecting You solely

I wanna lose myself, lose myself to find You
I wanna lose myself, lose myself to find You

I don’t care how it sounds
Burn it up to the ground
Your kingdom, my desire
I wanna lose myself, lose myself to find
To find You

(I need to find you/I need to find you)

As all of the fates, I’ll be on my way
The wreckage behind me
My feet on the ground, two hands reaching out
The future is blinding

So what is stirring in You? May You stir up in me
All the dreams that You placed inside me
Take all that You see and shape it to be
The story You’re writing

I wanna lose myself, lose myself to find You
I wanna lose myself, lose myself to find You

I don’t care how it sounds
Burn it all to the ground
Consume me with Your fire
I wanna lose myself, lose myself
To find You

I need to find you…
I need to find you…
I need to find you…

I need to find you…
I need to find you…
I need to find you…

So do not hide your face from me
Do not hide your face
Do not hide your face from me
Please don’t hide

I’m gonna lose myself, lose myself to find
To find you
I need to find you…
I need to find you…
I need to find you…
I need to find you…

So do not hide your face from me
Do not hide
So do not hide your face from me
Do not hide

I need to find you.

So do not hide your face from me
Do not hide
So do not hide your face from me
Do not hide

So do not hide your face from me
Please don’t hide your face

What does it mean to ‘lose myself to find Christ’? In Matthew 10:29 NLT it says,

If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give it up for Me, you will find it.

If we cling to the world, and the ways of the world, we will lose the abundant life that was meant for us to live.  Living in the freedom that Jesus meant for us to live means not living according to our fleshly emotions and the standards of the world, but instead giving up those things of the flesh and trusting God in the midst of them.

For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. – Romans 8:5 NLT

We were intended to live higher and to be spiritually-minded—not to live carnal or according to the flesh.  Oh, there is SO MUCH FREEDOM when we choose to live as God intended for us to live and not live according to our feelings. Most importantly, we can only do what God calls us to do through His strength and not our own.  It is then that we lose ourselves and, instead, truly find and live in freedom.

 

My personal prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank You for revealing those things that are hindering my walk with You and for the strength and the courage to lose myself so I may find You. I thank You for the life of freedom only found in You. In Jesus Name. Amen.

 

Your sweetest Melody, ❤
