In the morning when I rise…

Give me Jesus. I discovered this song at our church in Waco.  It was an old school, beautiful version of the song. We just sang it with honesty with the wonderful Kurt Kaiser at the piano. Sometimes I wonder if I can really sing it. This world makes some pretty good offers.

How can I really count them nothing for Christ? Does this include people? What are you called to sacrifice? Is it really a sacrifice? Do I know what is good? I love what God created. It is good. Amen. But what would I see in it or in you without the reflecting love of the Creator?

At the end of the day or at the beginning,  I think I just have to speak it out in the midst of doubt. Isn’t this the definition of faith?

 You may have all this world. But give me Jesus.

One thought on “In the morning when I rise…

  1. I’m here from Ann’s – and it’s Thursday – but you know how many there were to get through – and I love reading them. It just took me this long to get to yours. And yes, “speak it out in the midst of doubt.” is one of the better definitions of faith I’ve heard.

    My fave from the list by the way – 22. Phone calls, email, texts, facebook messages of prayer, love, strength (because we can’t make it alone – I’ve only recently learned this – finally – Christianity has always been about community){smile}

    Your list was contagious, and I’m more thankful for having read it.

    God Bless and Keep you and yours
