For various reasons (including being instructed to by my nephew), I’ve decided to write a book rather than (or possibly as well as) a blog. I have started one or two projects in the past, but I now think I have a genuine direction along with the genuine motivation to see it through. If this is indeed what God wants me to do, and if I follow where He leads… then I’ve absolutely no idea what will happen with it when it is written.

But I know Who does know.

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 mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect, and use 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.
Take my love, my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.

[Frances R. Havergal]
