It may be the hardest thing to learn, yet the most precious lesson of all that we have to give ourselves away in order to find life. Motherhood teaches us this. I have found I can either resist it, or surrender to it. When I surrender, I find true happiness. Or I can hold tightly to my own time, I can fight for a so-called rewarding career, and I can make demands for my needs and my rights. I can do all of this if I want to stay miserable.

I’ll admit readily that I’m still very much learning how to give myself away. Serving does not seem to come easy for me. But God has given me a vision for it. I am inspired when I go to some of the Above Rubies Retreats and see how God has changed so many women’s lives and replaced self-serving hearts with gentle, giving attitudes.

When Serene and I wrote this song, we constantly thought about a dear friend of ours named Chase. She has been to at least seven or eight Above Rubies retreats now – can you believe it?  Before God changed her heart she was studying law and determined to make it in the career world. She now has five children and it has been amazing to see her change, little by little and precept upon precept. She is such an example of a woman with a heart for God. The thing I love to watch about Chace is that once she hears truth, she applies it. She makes the changes in her life, despite resistance from within her own flesh and from others.

Thanks for inspiring Serene and me, Chase.

I know some seasons we go through are harder than others. God will uphold you.

TEACH ME

Dedicated to Chace Simmons

Never thought that I’d be living like this,

Never thought that I’d believe this way,

If somebody had said that this would be me,

I would have laughed at the impossibility!

But look, yeah, look what You’ve done,

Look what I’ve learned,

Look what You’ve made from this broken urn,

I want even more, I’ve set my sights,

I want to feed on Your words of life.

CHORUS:

Teach me, I will listen, I’ll be open

And Your truth will change me.

Teach me, I am willing, I am wanting

For you to finish this work

That You’ve already started in me.

I never knew that truth could feel so free,

I never knew I’d find joy in losing more of me.

Every day You reveal a little more

And I can only smile when I think of what’s in store.

Just look, yeah, look what You’ve done,

Look what I’ve learned,

Look what You’ve made from this broken urn,

I want even more, I’ve set my sights,

I want to feed on Your words of life.

CHORUS.

What a view from this mountain top,

I could never go back,

I can see there're more hills up ahead,

But I’m on the right track.

CHORUS.
