now as i talked to my friend we agreed that we will meet this coming Thursday and it is later today! wow! that fast? lol. then i suddenly thought of it like a "2011 year-ender fellowship". does it sounds good to you? yes it did to me. i just want to spend my last days of 2011 with thanksgiving and praises to my God and Saviour. i am excited. i tried to think of how we were doing it in our home church in the Philippines. i guess we will play some games too. we will sing. yay! i kinda ambushed my husband when i said he will deliver the inspirational talk. like ummm...1 day notice? (: i really thought it would be nice if everyone will share how the Lord blessed him/her this passing year. and voila the whole programme was born. so im really pretty excited!
i am appealing to myself as i prepared the details of the programme. it is so easy to count the blessings of God to me and my family and yet still ungratefulness comes to surface my life. what do i mean by that? there are numerous times that i have not been faithful to God that i once believed, nevertheless He remains faithful. i can still remember crying because i doubt Him and i asked for forgiveness.
God doesn't deserve my half-hearted commitment to His Kingdom much less my wavering obedience. i believe He called me to this place to encourage, edify, inspire and pray for the people who are in need of a Saviour. i am called to be His salt and light of this darkening world. i repent for wasting my time, talent and treasure this passing year. Lord Jesus, change me.
Lord Jesus, this is my prayer
Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless 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 mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r 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.
Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.
let us bless the Lord by giving our whole life to Him and His Kingdom. in Him alone we can have a good and fresh start. have a blessed new year to everyone!
