This is one addiction that is a good one to have:)> Waking up every morning and looking forward to spending time with the Lord in HIS Word and in prayer. Looking forward to preaching and asking Him to speak to my heart and show me areas that I need to work on. Praying not just for our church, but for others around the world. Seeking to share the truth about Jesus' Death, Burial and Resurrection! It's exciting to read verses I've heard or read before, but having the Lord show me a new way to apply it to life today. Finally understanding many verses that I had trouble with in the past, or never even noticed as I read through. It's a blessing to talk some of them through with Scott and the children. Most of the time Scott already knows what I've read, but it's nice to share it with others.
I'm excited to share what God has been doing and is continuing to do in our lives. He is SO good to us and we're so undeserving of HIS great love and mercy. As spring starts to melt the snow around us, so we long to see Him wash away the icy indifference or lukewarm state that so many have to the things of the Lord. May He shine brightly through our lives and make a difference in the world around us. Never hiding our lights under a bushel, but putting them on a candlestick. Praying for His help to be a bolder witness this year.
Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise.
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 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.
