Take My Life...

Hopefully, you've been a reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL) long enough to know that I love my Lord's Day!  Sunday.

Normally, I'd be going to worship with my church family.  However, since I cannot drive, I will not be attending the worship service.

Even so, some music has been on my mind. 

A friend posted it on Facebook (FB) a few days ago.  It's been on my mind ever since.  Especially, since it is a hymn I adore.

The hymn was written by Frances Ridley Havergal, and is entitled, Take My Life And Let It Be.  Here is a link where you can listen to and/or sing along with Brian Doerksen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQ93HVuYd5Y

Take My Life And Let It Be

Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
At the impulse of Thy love.

Take my feet, and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.
Take my voice, and let me sing
Always, only, for my King.
Always, only, for my King.

Take my lips, and let them be
Filled with messages for Thee.
Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold.
Not a mite would I withhold.

Take my love, my God, I pour
At Thy feet it's treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee
Ever, only, all for Thee.


Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee
Ever, only, all for Thee.


Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee
Ever, only, all for Thee.


This is beautiful music, that inspires my heart.  It's a hymn that we've sung during worship services for many a year.

And, it displays how I feel about God.  I live for Him.

Just as He told us His sheep do, in John 10:27-28, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand."

He knows me.

He provides for me.

He loves me.

He has provided me with eternal life. 

My physical life here on earth one day, will end.  But, I will live on with Him.  In Heaven.

Why?

Because, I'm trusting in my Lord, Jesus Christ. 


Until next time...
