My Life is Yours
By Samantha Wooten

If I were to receive
All the world can give,
But not have You,
What life would I live?
I’d have nothing to hold on to.
Though at times I don’t see,
You have a plan for me.
So, I give you all my hopes.
I give you all my dreams.
Holding nothing back—
I give you everything.
Take this life,
This broken pot.
Even though I’m not 
What I want to be,
You don’t give up on me,
For I am Your child.
You hold me in Your hand.
You help me understand
You love me
The way that I am.
