Lyrical Friday - Yours To Take

I had a completely different song in mind this morning to post for Lyrical Friday. However, the Lord had a very special song in mind, Yours To Take by Jimmy Needham. I pray that this song challenges you to consider your life, are you His to take? Can God do with your life what pleases Him or are you living your life for yourself?

I happened across a verse this morning that so beautifully ties in with this song, atleast I think so. As I read it, I pictured myself sitting under the shade of a tree. Jesus is there and extends His hand towards me, and He speaks, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, And come away*." As we purpose our lives to be lilies among thorns I challenge you today to rise up and follow hard after Him. 

My Beloved is mine, and I am His. He feeds His flock among the lilies. Song of Solomon 2:16

Yours To Take, Jimmy Needham

This is my second chance
This is no song and dance
You came in and renewed a right spirit
This is grace at its best
This is taking a restless, messed up heart and having you clear it

I can feel the weight is lifting
I'm barely staying on the ground
And I can feel the wait is over
Finally the lost is found

So, this is what it feels like to live life
So, this is breathing air for the very first time
The Son of man, He came here to give life
And in return He asking for mine
I've Been captured by grace
I'm not going away
I'm Yours to take

I was down for the count
I was up, but knocked out
When I heard pardon for the interruption
Then like out of blue
Out came glorious You

You picked me up without barely any introduction
You won my heart by a landslide
You tend to do that every time
So, everything I have is Yours now
Even my very life


Your kindness leads me to repentance
Leads me to the cross, which leads me to forgiveness
So, I'm counting it all as loss

*Song of Solomon 2:10
