I Am Yours

This week this blog turned one year old. In celebration I will repost one of the original posts -- one of my favourites:

Yesterday I needed to interrupt my husband from an involved job so I could gain both his attention and his help. He immediately stopped what he was doing, smiled and said, “I’m yours.”

It was such a simple phrase but it meant so much to me. With those words he told me I had his complete attention. He showed me he was eager to help, and he waited patiently for me to ask him whatever it was I needed of him. Because of this his words spoke volumes of his love for me.

Then I realised that these are the words we should regularly say to our Lord. I am Yours. These words tell our God – and remind ourselves – that we are eager for his direction, that he has our full attention, and that we love him so deeply that we are willing to do the things he asks of us.

But the most wonderful thing is that these are the words God says to us. We are his and he is ours.

Happy Anniversary and thank you! I needed to hear those words. I have been so selfish lately. I know I need to go back to God, bow down and say "I am Yours."

Thanks again

I couldn't agree more. We must
daily give ourselves to Him,
body, mind, will, emotions,
all of us. Beautiful post.

Lynda, I think this is the most profound post I have read in a long time. Your husband is a doll! And yes, we should be saying that exact thing to God, as He gave us everything...Jesus!

Susan Kane said...

How wonderful to have that said to you, and then to carry it as what Christ says to us everyday. My answer has to be, "and I am yours."
Thank you. Susan

Happy Anniversary, Lyn!

And this was a wonderful post to celebrate. Because, after all, our blogs are really "all His" too, aren't they?

Loved the beautiful photo - and the little "snapshot" of your precious husband.

Oh Lord, yes - I'm yours.

GOD BLESS!

Don't you know the Lord is happy when we tell Him that we are all His! Sounds like you have a great husband. Congratulations on your first year anniversary of blogging! I'm glad to have met you through it!
