Concecrated Lord to Thee

Well...Clearly, it's been May since I last posted. It's been a crazy summer. I went to New Orleans on a mission trip, I made some new friends, I started school, I quit my job, and I took a position as youth pastor at my church...Holy Cannoli!

God has been showing me that if we are not focused on and set on having our thoughts on the things of God and not the things of man, that ultimately, we become Satan to him, and become a stumbling block to those who are around us. (Matthew 16:23) It's hard, but God willing, he will purify my lips with the coal of His Spirit. O to know Him rightly and intimately!

On my mind is the old hymn...

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord to Thee
Take my time, Take my days
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(Chorus)

Take my voice and let me sing, always only for my King
Take my lips, let them be, filled with words from Thee
Take my love - Lord I pour, at Thy feet its treasure store
Ever, only, all for Thee

Take my will and make it Thine
It shall be no longer be mine
Take my heart - it is Thine own
It shall be Thy royal throne

(Repeat Chorus)

Ever, only, all for Thee
