Take my life, and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days; let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands, and let them move at the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet, and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee.

Take my voice, and let me sing always, only, for my King.
Take my lips, and let them be filled with messages from Thee.
Take my silver and my gold; not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect, and use every power as Thou shalt choose.

Take my will, and make it Thine; it shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own; it shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord, I pour at Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself, and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.

Inside the will of God

Jonah was outside of the will of God when he opted to go on the boat to the much more preferable destination of Tarshish, rather than the place God called him to Nineveh. It is imperative for every Christian to be obedient and faithful to the calling of God in their life. This will not always be a smooth path to follow as the journey will have many highs and lows. However let us never forget that we are submissive to the call of God, that He will be with us and will supply all that we need to be successful in serving Him.

There may be times like Jonah when we wonder why God will want to bless people that we find it hard to like. This is a lesson from the Scriptures for our benefit and instruction, even if we do not always understand everything that God does. By trusting in God we know His peace in our lives and by following His plan in our lives, we will know His blessing. Andy Wilson

Please pray for all those at Bethany who are sitting exams at this time whether at school, college or university.

We all have a gift from God that we can use to serve Him. If you are involved in the activities of Bethany be encouraged, if not and you are able please use that gift in some way and together we can make a difference for God.

Missionary Update France

After seven months in LH, we have several reasons for thanksgiving. One is a good commitment to the weekly prayer and Bible study meeting. Another is the help received from Christians elsewhere, from Britain and France. A young couple from the Paris area has encouraged the local folk by coming a few times to spend a Sunday here. Visiting families, and preachers, are appreciated too! Some Christians from the north of France hope to come and help us this summer.

We're also glad that an Asian sister, who struggles with French, has become much more enthusiastic about reading the Bible since Anne gave her a simpler translation than the one she was used to. Please pray that her enthusiasm will be contagious in her neighbourhood! A family with four adolescents has recently been attending regularly, and we now hope to begin a Youth Fellowship. There are 14 teenager's or young adults whose parents are Christians in fellowship here; some of them come cheerfully with their parents, some a bit less willingly, others not at all! Please pray that all of these young people will develop a real love for the Lord and a desire to serve him.

Most people round here live in blocks of flats: it's not so easy to get to know them as when you can chat over a garden fence! We were very interested to find out that a teacher in the local primary school, just a few hundred yards away, is a young woman who spent 6 months studying in England with our daughter several years ago ? and went to church with her twice on Sundays!! Please pray that she will think again about all she heard then, and turn to the Lord.

His good pleasing and perfect will
