What does it mean to you to live as a self- giving person?
What do you see in yourself and those around you as you close up to self-giving?
What do you see in yourself and those around you as you open to self- giving?
Pray this prayer, or one like it:
Take my life and
let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise.
my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.
my silver and my gold,
Not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect and use
Every pow’r as Thou shalt choose.
my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.
