Seek You First


Seek You First

"'Seek You First' is my reflection on Matthew 6:33, and my prayer, this year, to be anchored to the sacred space of my time with Jesus. It’s my greatest desire that my relationship with him eclipse all others. I wrote this song in the days leading up to a new year. It comes out of a deep rooted desire to put Jesus first." (Mark Alan Schoolmeesters)
Mark Alan also wrote a New Year Devotional entitled 'Seek You First'.

Amidst a world that's full of noise
This my resolve this is my choice
To set aside this altar
To carve out sacred space
That I will seek you first

I want to seek you, I want to know you
I want to find you here today
I stand in surrender, it's you that I'm after
Let nothing on earth stand in the way
Before I'm moving forward, my response will be
That I will seek you first

Forgive me for failing to slow down
Align me in this place I'm found
I set aside my future
Come write on me your ways
That I will seek you first

I will live to honor you all my days
I will live to honor you in everything
I will seek you first
