Worship Interludes: A New Beginning [Episode 53, October 16, 2017]

There are two things that I appreciate and both have similar meanings:

  1. sunrises
  2. Monday mornings

Yes, you read that correct – Monday mornings.  Most people absolutely hate the thought of Monday morning.   But for me, much like the sunrise, it’s the signal of a new day, a new week, a new chance.

As I recorded this interlude this morning I took some time to journal, pray, and reflect on what I wanted a new week to look like.  I set some goals spiritually, physically, and practically.

As you start your new week, I hope you’ll take some time to consider these things and set some time to listen to this interlude and dream.

Have a great week!

Worship Interludes: Take My Life [Episode 52, Oct 5, 2017]

Today’s interlude is a simple piano rendition of the classic hymn, “Take My Life and Let It Be”.   As I spent time in prayer and meditation today it became my renewed prayer.

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.
