There was a day I made up my mind there was no turning back. I indeed set my face and my heart to follow in the footsteps of the one I loved more than my life. My heart is His and His heart is mine.
I Set My Face
With quiet determination I set my face,
As God’s promises are embraced.
My desire is to serve Him, all I am I give,
With all my heart I offer this life I live.
My thoughts I offer for Him to inspect,
As evil desires I willingly reject.
I know my motives are not always good or true,
But even them I open up to You.
The deep hurts and wounds within,
That causes bitterness to settle in.
I bring them to the Great Physician above,
To be revealed and healed by His love.
What have I to fear? My God is on my side.
I set my face, preparing to be His bride.
Faithful with robes white without stain.
I stand in confidence with Him safe I remain.
I purpose at this time to die to self-rule again,
As I set my face to live each moment for Him.
For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded:
therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
