This is my declaration of DEPENDENCE on the One (Jesus Christ) who gave His life to me!

More to come a lot later…probably after I come home from work tomorrow!  That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls!  I have to work on the Fourth of July.  Oh well.  Praise God for the freedom that I and we have to worship Him in this country!

Now just the other day
I overheard a flower talking to this guy
He said you know that I would be nothing without you
He said you give me rain, you give the sun a place to shine
You’re everything that my whole existence comes down to

Then the flower started singing a song
Before I knew it I was singing along
And we sang

This is my declaration of dependence
This is my declaration of my need
This is my declaration of dependence
On the One who gave His life to me

Now let me say that I’m the kind of guy who wants to do it all myself
Don’t want to ask for help
Don’t like to stop for directions
But in reality I’m nothing on my own
It’s by God’s grace alone
That I can make this confession

All that I am and all I’m hoping to be
Is all and only what He’s given to me
So I say


And I know this is how my life was meant to be
I was made for this dependency
On the One who has created me
So I’ll sing my declaration song
For the One I am depending on
And I hope you’ll sing along
