Book Excerpt:

[34] Chapter III.
Our Hands Kept for Jesus.

‘Keep my hands, that they may move

At the impulse of Thy love.’

When the Lord has said to us, ‘Is thine heart right, as My heart is with thy heart?’ the next word seems to be, ‘If it be, give Me thine hand.’

What a call to confidence, and love, and free, loyal, happy service is this! and how different will the result of its acceptance be from the old lamentation: ‘We labour and have no rest; we have given the hand to the Egyptians and to the Assyrians.’ In the service of these ‘other lords,’ under whatever shape they have presented themselves, we shall have known something of the meaning of having ‘both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.’ How many a thing have we ‘taken in hand,’ as we say, which we expected to fi. . . Read More

So simple in such a perfect way of encouragement.

The language and the examples are of her time, but the truth remains timeless and the beauty of her cry for surrender rings true through the ages. Frances Ridley Havergal takes her timeless hymn “Take My Life” and expands on every line until my heart

She takes you line by line through the hymn "Take my life and let it be." While I didn't agree with everything in this book, most of it is so very good. I am still thinking on many things in it. I really liked it overall, especially because this is one of my favorite hymns, and now I like it even mo

I was given this book by a friend. Some of the tone is perhaps legalistic, but I truly enjoyed thinking about the time and context within which it was written. Her love and challenge to be surrendered to our Great Friend as Master overrode any misgivings I had toward some of the chapters.

This was a short read, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Frances Havergall goes through the lines of her famous hymn, “Take My Life, and Let it Be,” and applies the lines to one’s Christian life and service for the Lord. Very insightful, and even convicting at times, but still not too theologically deep

A very old Christian book written for women. This was loaned to me by a woman from my church. It was a call to reflect on what we do when we commit our lives to Christ. Do we give our all to Him?
This was a very thought provoking read.

Understand God More

I like this book because it focuses on our relationship with God our Father as He relates to us. Books that take the focus off of us and put it where it belongs - on God, bless my heart every time. There were so many gems in this book that I am sure to read it again and again. And

“Now ye have consecrated yourself unto the Lord, come near” (2 Chron. xxiv. 31)

“‘FOR THEE!’ That is the beginning and the end of the whole matter of consecration...Out of the realized ‘for me’ grows the practical ‘for Thee’! If the former is a living root, the latter will be its living fruit...Conse

Havergal's practicality is explicit and highly thought-provoking in a needfully good and precise way. One who thinks that he / she is as close as he/she can get to God should read this; Let Havergal tenderly bring to light the oft overlooked areas of weakness that will henceforth call for prayerful

A commentary on Ms Havergal’s hymn Take My Life. I love the idea of the book, that we should give thought to how we can give ourselves completely and joyfully to God. Sadly the age of the book keeps many of her examples from being relevant. (A whole chapter on choosing Christian songs for the evenin
