Every time I read that story again
I wanna run and take the nails out
You remind me that those nails are mine
Once and for all to the end (Hebrews 9:26)

I’m not ready for this
I’m not ready yet
I’m not ready
For this ending
But it’s not over yet

You were speaking to a group last night
You asked someone to lay their pride out
I turned to see who it could be
You were looking me dead in the eye

I’m not ready for this
I’m not ready yet
I’m not ready
For this ending
But it’s not over yet

I’m not ready for this
I’m not ready yet
I’m not ready
For this ending
But it’s not over yet
I’ve been fighting against myself
And I’ve torn myself to pieces
I hear You calling, God, I hear You calling
“Stand up, stand up
And spend yourself for Jesus”

Too long have I been chained
I’m ready Jesus—set me free

    General CommentToo often we think we aren't ready for what God wants us to do-we're scared of screwing up or of what people will think of us- and we try to suppress the Holy Spirit tugging at our hearts, but we eventually have to realize that it's not about whether we feel ready, it's about doing what God wants regardless of whether we "feel" ready, because He knows what we can handle, and if He knew the situation is too much for us, He wouldn't have put us up to it. Ultimately, when we "spend ourselves for Jesus", we are set free by obeying God. It seems almost contradictory, but if you ever experience it, you don't feel tied down at all.
