“Take my life and let it be consecrated Lord, to thee.
Take my moments and 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.
Take my voice and let me sing always, only for my king.
Take my lips and let them be filled with messages from thee.
Take my silver and my gold not a might would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use every power as you choose.
Here am I, all of me.

Take my life, it’s all for thee.
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.
Take my love, my Lord I pour at your feet its treasure store
Take myself and I will be ever, only all for thee,
Take myself and I will be ever, only all for thee.
Here am I, All of me.

Take my life, It’s all for thee.

Here am I, All of me.

Take my life, It’s all for thee.”

Welcome to today’s post.  Jamie and I did not serve in the Red Zone this past week.  We took the week off to spend time with my mother and my sister who came from Phoenix, Arizona to visit us.

It was a wonderful week.  Our friend, Grace, used her car to take us on some adventures.  Some of the places we went were to La Paz Falls, Volcano Poas and downtown San Jose to tour the National Theater.

Jamie and I have been to all these places before, but it is always nice to be with people who are seeing them for the first time.

We introduced them to the ‘tipico’ food of Costa Rica.  One such meal was a delicious breakfast prepared for all of us by Grace.  Besides the beans, rice, eggs, vegetables and fried cheese, Grace had bought several of the current fruits that are in season.

When visiting a country, it is a blessing to be befriended by a local.  Our friend demonstrated the true hospitality of the people of Costa Rica.

Ronald L. McDonald

Morning Prayer: Father, speak life into any barren agendas I have, that they might bring forth pleasing fruit. I realize I can do the right thing for the wrong reasons. Purify my infected motives. Cleanse me of calculated kindness. Instruct me in integrity. Amen.

Morning Scripture: Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. – Romans 12:9-13

Welcome to today’s post.  I was looking up today.  This is what I saw.  The shoe and a bright reflection.

So, this morning, as I was looking up, I see this bright light.  I know it’s the suns reflection on the razor wire, but I immediately know that I have not seen this before.  Is it a sign?  Does God want me to recognize something He has put before me?   What is the significance of me seeing this light, right here and right now?

The sun moved.  The reflection disappeared.  Nope, no idea what that meant.

This is how life is.  Often, right as we think we have something figured out, something changes our perspective and what we thought we knew no longer makes since.

Being flawed humans, we tend to be shifting shadows.  We have doubts.  We give God control and then we take it back.  We spend massive amounts of time reading the Bible.  We study His Word.  We meditate on it.  We pray intently and when we are too weak to pray, the Holy Spirit intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.

Praise God, that His Word does not change; and it is as true today as it was at the beginning and will be the same until the end.  The end being when He says so.

So until God tells us to continue in another location, Jamie and I will strive to be useful to Him as He directs our path each day.
