35.jpgI am no longer my own, but thine.

Put me to what thou wilt.

Rank me with whom thou wilt, 

Put me to doing,  put me to suffering;

Let me be employed for thee or laid aside for thee,

Exhaulted for thee or brought low for thee; 

Let me be full, let be be empty;

Let me have all things, let me have nothing;

I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and dispsosal.


And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

Thou are mine and I am thine.  So be it.

And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven.

Something To Consider

God used cosmic events and entered into historical events in the early years of his revelation to mankind but that general revelation was incomplete.   Not until He came to earth as a little baby, in a humble setting, did God complete what he intended.  He revealed his will for the salvation of the world through his son.   Jesus was both flesh and God.  He entered into the history of mankind and was seen and heard as "one of us."  He came to earth, not to condemn the world but that the world through His plan and person could be reconciled and have a personal relationship with him. (1 John 3:16)   -Thomas Q.
