Take my life, and let it be

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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.
5
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.
6
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 mean it Lord... take all of me and make it Thine.... Your will Lord, Your will Lord, only Your will.

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.

During prayer, this song welled up in my heart. No matter the trials Lord let me be Yours now and forevermore. Amen.

The song just popped into my head and I had to sing it. No matter what everything belongs to him. He is worth everything.

During a quiet time this morning I read Deut 8 and this song, which I have not sung for some time, came to my mind. Though trials and challenges abound, I do not hesitate to embrace this song and its transforming words.

Meditating on romans 12:1-2 and this hymn dropped in my heart. As I sang it, I realized that this is what offering myself to God as a living sacrifice is - total surrender, yielding everything to God.
