Take my life, and let it be

Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise,
Let them flow in ceaseless 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,
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,
Filled with messages from Thee.
Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose,
Every power 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,
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,
Ever, only, all for Thee.

I’ve been singing the 1st line of this song for a week. Just Googled it so I could sing the entire hymn. I’ve recommitted my Life to Jesus. I’m retired, and have been my Mother’s caregiver for the past 7 1/2 years. She is in Hospice now and will soon go Home to be with Jesus. She is so excited and eager to go Home and see Jesus, and be in Heaven with her loved ones. Once she passes, Jesus has plans for My life. To continue to serve Him, and Him alone for the rest of my days. I have surrendered ALL to Him. I am filled with His Joy and Peace. Watch and see what He will do!

Blessings on all of you!! Go with God!!

O Lord, may nothing dwell in my soul but Your pure love alone. Till my every thought, word, and act be love. Yes Lord, may Your love posses me whole; You're my joy, my treasure, my crown!

This has been my focus and prayers of consecration since I gave my life to Jesus Christ on December 24, 1979. I love You Lord. To You alone be the glory, honor, adoration and praises. Amen.

Was led here this morning by Holy Spirit, to this hymn from a long ago childhood. This is my heart's cry, as it is Yours as well. Take us Lord, make our beings long for You and Your will above all else!

This song poped up in my mind when I felt that my life as a Christian is not as it ought to be.

I surrender all to God.

In today's reading God said to "take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." Where my mind wanders my feet are sure to follow. Thank You Lord for Your precious word. As l read this, this hymn came to mind and l asked Google to give me the lyrics.
