I Give Myself Away

Chorus:
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me
I give myself away
I give myself away
So You can use me

Verse 1:
Here I am
Here I stand
Lord, my life is in your hands
Lord, I’m longing to see
Your desires revealed in me
I give myself away

Verse 2:
Take my heart
Take my life
As a living sacrifice
All my dreams all my plans
Lord I place them in your hands

Bridge:
My life is not my own
To you I belong
I give myself, I give myself to you

Believe In The Light

For they loved human praise more than the praise of God.

Belong to the LORD

May 7, 2008

“Oh no sir!” she replied. “I’m not drunk! But I am very sad, and I was pouring out my heart to the LORD.”
1 Samuel 1:15

When was the last time you poured your heart out?

“Now I am giving him to the LORD, and he will belong to the LORD his whole life.” And they worshipped the LORD there.
1 Samuel 1:28

“For all the earth is the LORD’s, and he has set the world in order.
1 Samuel 2:8b

Meanwhile, Samuel grew up in the presence of the LORD.
1 Samuel 2:21b

But Jesus replied, “My Father never stops working, so why should I?”

Those who control their anger have great understanding; those with a hasty temper will make mistakes.

One Year Bible Journey

January 2, 2008

His Word speaking to me today:

Now the serpent was the shrewdest of all the creatures the LORD God had made. “Really?” he asked the woman. “Did God really say you must not eat any of the fruit in the garden?”
Genesis 3:1

Each year since 2002 I have read through the Bible. This year will be no different. I do this because it is only through God’s word can I know how to live like God wants me to live. It is a personal choice as I have been called and chosen to be His. It is only natural that I would give to Him my time for all that He has done for me. I typically get my cup of coffee and sit down to his word between 5:15 am and 6:00 am — not that you have to do this, but I enjoy it!!!

Each day this year I will try to place a reference on this blog as to what I am reading in the Bible for that day. I follow the One Year Bible plan that is found here. To help me facilitate this journey I have a One Year Bible. Also, if I find I don’t have time to read it, I can listen to it via the internet or on my ipod at the One Year Bible On Radio. And if you want to connect with other believers on the journey, I would highly recommend Mike’s blog: www.oneyearbibleblog.com.

You will find only a small portion of scripture as to what I write down in my journal as I am reading His word. Sometimes He also tells me what I need to do that day in my schedule and I write that down. I want to run with whatever he gives me this year in 2008.

If you would like to join me again this year, today’s reading can be found here.

Parted His Garments

October 18, 2007

And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
Matthew 27:35 (KJV)

I read this and something within me stirred. When I think of the garments being parted I think of how each of us have been given robes because of Christ who gave to each of us. We are clothed in fine linen white and clean (Rev. 19:14). Christ put on the robe that was dipped in blood so that we might be made clean in Him.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:1 (KJV)

And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Revelation 19:13 (KJV)

Thank you Adonai!

Follow God’s Example

September 27, 2007

Follow God’s example in everything you do, because you are his dear children.
Ephesians 5:1

Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:10

Don’t act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what the Lord wants you to do.
Ephesians 5:17

Set My Face

September 26, 2007

Oh that you had listened to my commands! Then you would have peace flowing like a gentle river and righteousness rolling like waves.
Isaiah 48:18

The Sovereign LORD has given me his words of wisdom, so that I know what to say to all these weary ones. Morning by morning he wakes me and opens my understanding to his will.
Isaiah 50:4

Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be dismayed. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will. And I know that I will triumph.
Isaiah 50:7

Instead, there must be spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes. You must display a new nature because you are a new person, created in God’s likeness – righteous, holy and true.
Ephesians 4:23-24

My prayer for today:
Thank you Father for what you have done in my life. Morning by morning you wake me and open my understanding to your will. I will continually renew my mind because you have given me your Holy Spirit. My thoughts and my attitudes are lining up with your word. I am setting my face like a stone — determining to do your will. Teach me to see, hear and do your commands so that I may have peace like a gentle river and righteousness rolling like waves. Thank you that I display to others a new nature because I am yours created in your likeness – righteous, holy and true. For I know with you all things are possible and I will triumph for all the good things that you have placed within me. Thank you Adonai! In Jesus name I pray. Amen — and it is so.
