What You Took From Me~


Lyrics by the Whisnants~
Lord I've come today to thank you
not for things I've ever mentioned here before
not for blessings you have given or the joys you've promised are in store
so as I bow before you give me the words to express my deepest thanks not for what you've given but lord for what you took away

You took my guilt and shame all my sinful blame became as yours, you opened wide your hand as a guilty man you wore my crown of thorns you took the death I earned and all that I deserved on Calvary lord thanks for what you've given but most of all thanks for what you took from me

father please forgive me for all the times I've failed to mention this before I've been so concerned with treasures I've went so far as to even ask for more but you've shown me lord what's precious it’s not the things you've given me today for their worth to me as nothing when compared
to what you took away.

You took my guilt and shame all my sinful blame
became as yours, you opened wide your hand as a guilty man you wore my crown of thorns you took
the death I earned and all that I deserved on Calvary lord thanks for what you've given but most of all thanks for what you took form me

you took my guilt and shame all my sinful blame became as your lord thanks for what you've given but most of all thanks for what you took from me.
I am so thankful for what the Lord took for me. He took the sin that I was born with and gave me a clean heart about thirty-four years ago at Old Savannah Baptist church in my home town of Sylva, North Carolina. It was during vacation Bible school. Every time I visit this special church, I can still get that feeling I felt the day the Lord saved me. My memory verse in Bible school that summer was John 3:16 so I do claim it as my life verse. John 3:16~17 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have ever lasting life 17`For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
I miss all my blogger friends but I do try to come by and visit you occasionally. I am weaning myself away slowly from face book. I hope everyone is well and happy. Spring is on the way. I love springtime. I cannot wait to get outdoors :)
Take care.

Hey Lisa!! So glad to hear from you again. I've been catching up on your posts, and happy that you and your family are doing well. I'm also on facebook, but I don't do much. I find, for me, that I spend too much time seeing what everyone has posted.
Bloom where your planted! I've been saying that for years. It's great advice! But sometimes, hard to do.
Have a blessed, (and sunny) weekend.
Blessings and hugs,
Karen
