All of Me

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. –Ephesians 5:22-33

All of Me

I wait for the moment we are together
Letting go of the fear that you may leave
Building up courage to trust again
I want to give you all of me

In God I trust and I will stand
Faithfully holding to his promises that will be
Hoping for true happiness in my life
I want to give you all of me

I know the man of God I wait for
He will indeed be all that I will ever need
He will guide, love, hold, and protect
I want to give you all of me

Surrendering my heart to you
Knowing there is no guarantee
Expecting you will be worth the risk
I want to give you all of me

Remember this fragile heart
Beneath my flesh it does beat
Anxiously awaiting the day that will come
I want to give you all of me
