More of You by Colton Dixon

More of you, less of me

Make me who I’m meant to be

Gotta love this song from Colton Dixon. What a wonderful reminder for us to surrender all that we are and all that we have to Jesus. It’s often easier said than done. Remember the rich young ruler from Matthew 19:16-26? He asked Jesus what he must do to obtain eternal life and when Jesus told him “…go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” The young man went away grieving for it was hard to part with his earthly treasures.

When I was much younger, I also put importance on earthly treasures. I wanted to work, earn money and buy a lot of things. Through time, the Lord has made me understand through His Word that it is moreΒ important to pursue Him, to make it our goal to be like Him and to do what we can to share the gospel. Wanting to become like Christ and following HimΒ is costly; often we will have to make a lot of sacrifices and the world will not always understand us but we are to look forward to the greater reward of being with Him for eternity.

“More Of You”

I made my castle tall
I built up every wall
This is my kingdom and it needs to fall
I want you and no one else
Empty me of myself
Until the only thing that’s left is

More of You
Less of me
Make me who I’m meant to be
You’re all I want all I need
You’re everything
Take it all I surrender
Be my king
God I choose
More of You and Less of me
I need more of you
More of you

This life I hold so close
Oh, God I let it go
I refuse to gain the world and lose my soul
So take it all I abandon everything I am
You can have it
The only thing I need is

More of You
Less of me
Make me who I’m meant to be
You’re all I want all I need
You’re everything
Take it all I surrender
Be my king
God I choose
More of You and Less of me
I need more of you
More of you

All to You
I surrender
All to You my blessed savior
I surrender all

All to You
I surrender
All to You my blessed savior
I surrender all

More of You
Less of me
Make me who I’m meant to be
You’re all I want all I need
You’re everything
Take it all I surrender
Be my king
God I choose
More of You and Less of me
I need more of you
More of you

All to You
I surrender
All to You my blessed savior

More of you
I need more of you
