Day 3 of 7 in 7: Save Us From This Crazy Busy World

This one doesn’t feel settled yet, but for the purposes of 7 in 7, it’s completed. :-)

Save Us From This Crazy Busy World

Listen Here

So many things demand my time
So many things fight for my life
How much of what I say and do
makes a real eternal difference for You

Show me what I don’t need in my life
Show me how to live life as a living sacrifice

We are Your kingdom, here on earth
sent to proclaim the second birth
Help us remember why we’re here
It’s You we love, it’s You we fear
What You’ve done and what You’ll do
We want to be consumed by You
Save us from this crazy busy world

Distractions assaulting from all sides
Attacking, they steal away my time
The clock ticking fast, time drifts away
What in the world did I do with my day

My best intentions fall away
The calendar dictates my day
So much to do, I’m sinking fast
Stuck under the weight of these endless tasks

So many things dominate our time
The meaningless, mundane, won’t last
We have You now – You’re our eternal prize

Save us from this world
