The month of February is knocking at the door but winter persists. Although it was at Christmas time we sang that wonderful hymn written by Christina Rossetti, the words are just as relevant as we cross the threshold into another new month. I’m referring to the words
“In the bleak midwinter,
Frosty winds made moan”
The author goes on to speak of the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ in a lowly stable, and then in the closing verse asks for our personal response to the birth of a Saviour.
“What shall I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd I would bring a lamb
If I were a wise man I would do my part
Yet, what can I give Him, Give my heart.”
Let’s pray to our Heavenly Father to help us make the same response as the New Year moves on apace, and to declare with the hymnist of old -
“Take my life and let it be consecrated Lord to thee
Take my moments and my days, let them flow in ceaseless praise.”
