I lay it down once and for all | When you’ve taken the first step and you don’t know what’s next

Lord, my words fail me today, so I will borrow them, sing at the top of my lungs, until my mouth is dry, my cords are sore and I’ve got nothing left to give you.

God I give You all I can today
These scattered ashes that are hid away
I lay them all at Your feet

From the corners of my deepest shame
The empty places where I’ve worn Your name
Show me the love I say I believe

O let this be where I die
My Lord with thee crucified
Be lifted high as my kingdom fall
Once and for all, once and for all

O Lord I lay it down
O Lord I lay it down
Help me to lay it down
O Lord I lay it down

Once and For All – Lauren Diagle

I lay it all down today, Lord; my business, my marriage, my dreams and every fear in between.

May your will be done in me. Take this life. I lay it down.

Today, I closed the doors of Kailey Michelle Events. Truth is, I knew it was coming, but it took me six months to finally obey God and take the leap of faith. I’m grateful for his mercy and patience, and most of all his gentle kindness.

Thank you, Lord, for never giving up on me; for finishing the work you have started in me. I wait with expectancy. Let me hear your voice and your call louder than anything else.
