To Be Like You

Lord, I want to be like you.

I want to …

– do the things that you did
– walk the walk that you walked
– live the kind of life that you lived
– say the kinds of things that you said
– be with the same types of people that you were with
– be unconcerned about my own life, and more concerned
about the lives of others around me
– live for you
– yield to you
– be as compassionate and caring as you are.

Lord, make me … just like you!
