“As The Day Breaks”

“As the day breaks and the shadows flee away,… flee away,

As the day breaks and the shadows flee away,… flee away,

Guide me O Thou  Great Jehovah,

Keep me faithful to Thy call,

As the day breaks and the shadows flee away.”

*”Sung by my great-grandmother, to her daughter, my Grandma, when she was growing up, during morning quiet time.”

Song of Songs 2:17

 

In Remembrance of Me

“And He took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, “This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.” Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.” Luke 22:19-20

There are many traditions, holidays, and ceremonies, that we observe and hold in remembrance, and many of them in the name of Christianity. We celebrate birthdays, and Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter, and that’s fine, they are special days, and it’s good to celebrate, but there is one thing that the Lord has asked us to observe, in remembrance of Him, and the sacrifice that He made to redeem us, saying;

“Do this as oft as you will, in remembrance of me.”  II Corinthians 11:25

As we remember the last supper today, we are also reminded of Christ’s sacrificial love for all of us. We are reminded of His tremendous suffering, and the price that He paid to save us. We are reminded that by His grace, through faith, we are saved.

Thank you, Jesus.♥

Take My Life

“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 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 will, and make it Thine;

It shall no longer be 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 it’s treasure store.

Take myself, and I will be,

Ever, only, all for Thee, Ever, only, all for Thee. -Amen
