Song --There's a Song In My Heart

Joining Lisa Jo for a simple little post.  She gives a topic with simple rules.  Write, don't edit, don't apologize for your thoughts and all in 5 minutes . . . is it ok to spell check?

Song it's funny she came up with this topic.  There's within my heart a melody.  Words from an old hymn I can't remember the rest. It makes me sad.  I miss the old hymns.  I surrender all.  All to Jesus I surrender.  That one I can remember. I need to remember. 
Because I realize that I do need to surrender.  Everyday.  Every hour.  Brings back another lyric. . . I need the every hour. 
We hear stories of people with addictions and their comments are something like this.  It's a daily struggle.  One day at a time.  One hour at a time.  But why don't we Christians think the same way about our relationship with our Lord.  Maybe you do.  But I don't
I don't do what I want.  Well that's wrong I do what I want.  I do what my selfish spirit wants. 
But what I want is to know him more and more.  I want to seek him every hour.  I want to fill my heart with a song.  A melody that whispers sweetly to me.  A melody that He sings to me.

Praying your day is filled with a Sweet Sweet Spirit

I love that you bring up the hymns! There's a stanza from one that has been on repeat for me lately: "Prone to wander, Lord I feel it. Prone to leave the God I love." I'm in a season on wandering right now and that little lyric reminds me of how much I need my shepherd to guide me back home! Thanks for this today!

A lovely thoughtful post. It is often difficult to surrender all to Him who knows everything! But without Him we are lost souls. I like this message today. Thanks for sharing!

What a great tribute to the prompt "Song". Thank you for posting. I reminds me too to seek God every hour, not just in times of need. Have a blessed day!

There's within my heart a melody, Jesus whispers sweet and low. Fear not I am with thee, peace be still in all of life's ebb and flow.


Thanks for sharing and now I'll be singing it all day! Yay!
