HISTORY OF HYMN

The first paragraph below is from wikipedia.org/ Have thine own way, Lord.
"In 1902, Adelaide A. Pollard, a Bible teacher and hymn writer, was hoping to go to Africa as a missionary but found herself unable to raise the needed funds to make the journey. Greatly discouraged, she attended a prayer service one evening and as she sat there, she overheard an elderly woman say "It really doesn't matter what you do with us, Lord, just have your own way with our lives." The elderly woman inspired Pollard and she contemplated the story of the potter from Jeremiah 18:3 and, upon her return home that evening, wrote all four stanzas before retiring for the night. Five years later George Stebbins wrote a tune titled "Adelaide" to accompany the text."
 

Thoughts by Frank Henrich   Have you not heard the newly on-fire Christian say Lord, I want to do great things for You.  This is what I think we can do together.  Then boldly that person strives to complete that task.  When he or she fails, there is a time of rethinking how one works for God.  Another project is attempted with the verbal expression, "Surely, God will bless this project."  After stumbling along, our on-fire Christian learns the lesson that God does not bless our wishes or claims with spiritual intervention and power. Slowly we learn over time that we need to listen to the Spirit of God and when He directs us we inwardly know its source. Then we prayer for confirmation and let God develop the circumstances that make such a project successful.  We must always remember we are His hands and feet and be humbles and meek that God has chosen us to do some of his work.  To be the little rain drop in His ministries! I wrote a poem called "I Am The Lord's Raindrop." I hope it helps you to know your place and always give God the credit for without His power nothing of value spiritually is done.

Lord. I want to serve you on this project, why do You not provide?

HYMN   HAVE YOUR OWN WAY, LORD!

Words By Adelaide Pollard (1862-1934) 

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!       
   Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after Thy will,      
   While I am waiting, yielded and still.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!      
   Search me and try me, Master, today!
Whiter than snow, Lord, wash me just now,      
   As in Thy presence humbly I bow.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!      
   Wounded and weary, help me, I pray!
Power, all power, surely is Thine!      
   Touch me and heal me, Savior divine.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!      
   Hold o’er my being absolute sway!
Fill with Thy Spirit ’till all shall see      
   Christ only, always, living in me.

Poem copied from book the complete Book of Hymns by Wiliam J Petersen and Ardythe Petersen Page 334. A most excellent book and one I recommend most highly.

     I AM THE LORD’S RAINDROP

I’m a raindrop trying my best
  To nourish for You, Lord, hungry souls,
When I think of the vastness of Your power 
I am lost in the failure to fathom Your awesomeness.

You know the minds of millions of persons,
  You know their thoughts and actions,
You send Your love to each one,
  You desire that each one seeks to adore You.

How can I even image such a powerful love?
  And then to add to this You created us,
While all You want of us is to love You and serve  
  While living a life of obedience to Your word.

Oh, how my mind goes into a whirl with all this,
  And then You ask me to be a raindrop
Nourishing souls with your heavenly knowledge,
  Drawing back to You the weary ones.

Humbled as I am, I say, who me Lord?
  You want me to be a rain-drop for You?
Then let Your grace of power ignite me
  And show me where my rain-drop is to fall.

Put a lake behind me to draw from
  And let the drops fall, and fall, and fall.
Lord please take me (insert your name) your servant,
  Give me the mission and power to be Your raindrop.
