An Offering

This evening at Bible study we sang a song called “We Are An Offering” by Dwight Lilies. 

I had never heard the song before.  But as we sang the lyrics I was thinking, if we looked at our lives and everything we do as an offering to God would it change what we choose to do and say? 

If I lift up my voice as an offering to God, then it won’t be raised in anger or to tear someone down.  When I lift up my hands to God as an offering, then I won’t lift up my hands to strike someone. 

Oh Lord, teach me to daily live my life as an offering to You. 

We Are An Offering
By Dwight Lilies

We lift our voices, we lift our hands
We lift our lives up to You
We are an offering
Lord use our voices, Lord use our hands
Lord use our lives, they are Yours
We are an offering

All that we have, all the we are
All that we hope to be
We give to You, we give to You

We lift our voices, we lift our hands
We lift our lives up to You
We are an offering, we are an offering

I haven't heard that song before either, but I love the lyrics! :) If we make it a point to lift up our hands in every little thing, all the small moments of joy and happiness will add up, open our hearts, and keep our eyes on Jesus so we can keep smiling on the outside and keep a genuine joy on the inside.

Blessings and hugs Susan!

Hi Susan, I have not heard of this song either. But oh so true that if we keep that at the forefront of our hearts & mind, it will be a garrison for us. Thank you for the lovely comment you left at my blog. Your visits are always refreshing. Wishing you a blessed & productive week.
