     This week’s music deals a lot with our praises to God (of course) and our commitment, and longing to follow Him.  We open with “Song of Praise” which testifies of God’s goodness toward us all.  It’s our goal to give a sacrifice of praise this week as we come before the one who has given us so much.

      “I Will Boast” has quickly become one of my favorites.  We sang it for the first time a couple of weeks ago.  It is a simple declaration that everything we have comes from our God.  We cannot boast about ourselves, but only in the one who made us.

      At this point in the service we focus more on our commitment to God, and asking Him to revive us, and make us more like Him.  “Revive Us Again”  begins this thought, and then we will transition into “Take My Life And Let It Be”.  If we truly want to be revived, then we have to surrender ourselves to God.  We will only be singing the first verse of this song which is the overall statement of the song.  “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”  If you have time, check out the rest of the lyrics to this song online.  It is a great song of commitment.

      We will finish the music portion of the service with the song “Speak To My Heart”.  We have taken time during the music to ask God to Revive us, and take our lives and make them more pleasing to Him.  We finish up with a song asking God to speak to us, and we will obey.  Can you truly sing these songs this week from your heart?  Take time to check them out by clicking the links provided in the chart above.

      Thanks as always for checking out what we will be doing this Sunday.  I really look forward to worshipping with you all!

    I was so surprised when I checked out the blog and saw that we will be singing “Take my life and let it be” — It has been on my mind all week!
