DADDY, I DON'T WANT TO RUN AWAY FROM YOU...

Daddy,
I DON'T want to run away from You,
I want to run TO You!
I want to SIT upon Your Knee,
I want to be HELD against Your Breast, Rocked Gently.
I want to HEAR You Whisper Your Love over me,
I want to EXPERIENCE it now - not just in Eternity!

Daddy,
I DON'T want to face this crisis alone,
I want to TALK to You here - not on 'The God Phone'!
I want to KNOW that Your Word is True,
I want to KNOW - in this shifting sand - The Security of You.
I want to EXPERIENCE the fruit of The Treasure You Placed in me,
I want to be a LIVING TESTIMONY!

Daddy,
I DON'T want to live each day as so many others do,
I want to be JOINED - NOT seperated from You!
I want to FEEL Your Presence - NOT be isolated,
I want to BE Your Love - NOT filled with bitterness and hatred.
I want to BE able to MAKE a difference, 
I want to BRING Your Peace and Joy - NOT offence!

Daddy,
I DON'T want to BE anyone else but ME,
I want to BE who You Created me to BE!
I want to DAILY walk and talk with You,
I want to HAVE the same sort of close Relationship that Jesus has with You.
I want to BE ABLE to 'fly like an eagle', 
I want to BE UNAFRAIDE - strong as a lion so regal!

Daddy,
You Place Jesus' Spiritual Blood in my veins,
Help me to LIVE worthy of His Name!
