Lord, keep my heart open and soft toward You

  Lord, keep my heart open and soft toward You.
Lord, draw my eyes to see nothing else but You.
  Whatever may happen,
I know You want to gain my heart.
Though I may not understand,
Just keep dispensing into my every part.
  Make me a believer
By looking at You.
Standing on Your Word,
Faithful and true.
(Parts 1 & 2 may be sung together, then join last verse in unison.)

I really enjoyed the key in this song to having a heart for the Lord that is soft and open toward Him, His Word. We need to be those in the Word daily. It's by being in the Word, in His presence, that we hear Him, see Him, and are infused with Him. We need to be those standing on His Word.

It is by the Lord's mercy that our hearts remain open and soft to Him. Thus, we should always come to the Lord for this matter.

A brother in Christ is suffering a tremendos loss in his family right now. The brother is an anointed man of God and I know the devil is using this tragedy to destroy him. Please pray for him that the Lord will keep his heart open and soft.

Lord, build Your home in all my heart.



"Though I may not understand, just keep dispensing into my every part." These lines are one of my favourites because during those difficult times in life when you have no clue why the Lord arranged a situation for you, singing this over and over again keeps you open to God's dispensing!

Come quickly Lord. Every moment, keep our hearts open and soft toward You. Keep our eyes fixed solely on You as we sojourn on this Earth. Grant us to be those who hasten Your coming. Come quickly Lord!

Amen, brothers and sisters. May this song guide us and keep us that we would be open and soft in our heart to do and be useful in His economy. From yp in Paranaque.

In our daily life, there are a lot of things which the Lord has sovereignly prepared for us. Though we may not understand, we just need to remember that God's heart toward us is always good. We don't have to worry or be anxious. We just need to keep ourselves open every avenue of our being, allow Him to gain our heart, give Him the way to keep dispensing to our every part. Just believe in Him, He's the Faithful and True one. "Faithful is He who called you, and who also will do it."
