Lord I give you my heart

Creative Tuesdays – Lord, I give you my heart.

With the prompt of “heart” I immediately thought of the song, Lord I give you my heart. Find out more about my faith story.

 

Lord I give you my heart 2

Today is Creative Tuesdays. Our prompt was:

Home is where the heart is” and “Love will guide you home.” So, for our next theme, I’d like you to add a drawing of a heart that is either depicted like it’s floating or in the air or perhaps on something that’s in the air. (Michael from Creative Tuesdays)

I have been taking a pencil crayon course. So I tried my watercolour pencils today for a little sketch. Not thrilled with the shading or colours but you get the idea. I’m going to try this one again. I used charcoal paper too when I should have used watercolour paper. Back to the drawing board for me.

Here is the picture with just the watercolour pencil crayons. At the bottom of the hand you can see how I started to apply the water with a brush.

Lord I give you my heart

Psalm 17:3 says:

Though you probe my heart,
    though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil;
    my mouth has not transgressed

I’m hoping that is so. Sometimes I do have to think back over my day if I am struggling to get to sleep.

Is there something I said, or did? Is there something I omitted doing?

When I “gave my heart” to Jesus, I meant it – very strongly. I meant that I would follow Him, that I would do what He said, where He led.

Since that time, I have really been challenged. I took 5 mission trips to Poland. I started a blog. I started painting. I published a children’s book. I am now podcasting once a week. I really meant it when I said I would do as He asked when I gave Him my heart.

Here are some other scriptures of how you can say, “Lord I give you my heart”:

We are to LOVE with all our hearts (Deuteronomy 6:5)
We are to SERVE with all our hearts  (Deuteronomy 11:13)
We are to OBSERVE with all our hearts (Deuteronomy 26:16)
We WORK with all our hearts (Nehemiah 4:6)
We SEEK with all our hearts (Psalm 119:2)

My favourite has always been:

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.

One of my favourite songs:

This is My Desire –  Lord I give you my Heart – sung here by Michael W. Smith.
