9:15..... we leave for Sunday school at 9:25. At 9:20 I was burning a disc with the accompaniment track to a favorite hymn. It was one I sang about 2 yrs ago. Good thing no one will remember me singing it back then!
It became a favorite my freshman year in college. It was chosen as our" class song".
"Take My Life and Let it Be". Perfect theme for a first year in college.
Perfect theme for the start of a new year!
God is good.
The solo went fine.
Here are the sweet words to the hymn:
- Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my hands and let them move
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.
- Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee;
Take my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
- Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise;
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.
- Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine;
Take my heart, it is Thine own,
It shall be Thy royal throne.
- Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.
It is funny how the very thing that brings amazing joy and peace and serenity is the very thing I fight, at times.
Funny how He "gets that" about me.
Funny how He waits.
Side note: Today the sun is coming out. Today it is 19 degrees! The wind chill is above zero. Woot woot! Ahhhh......who knew 19 could feel sweet!
It is all about perspective. *smile*
I am trying to leave the whine in 2009.
Can I do it?
I am quite a whiner.
ESPECIALLY in the winter.
