Allegiance

The Lord, he is God and he is good.  
It is he who made us, we are His. 
His love pursues us forever. 

I’ll trust His love and sovereign might
and receive with thankfulness what he gives me today.   
His Word is my guide and my delight.  
His command, my privilege to obey.  

The life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, 
who loved me and gave himself for me. 
The life I now live in this world, I’ll live as a light for the praise of my King,
honoring Him and others with love and humility.  

I will gladly sell all to have more of the joy
of God, my great Treasure, my Wisdom, my Way.  
I give all that I am for His glory,
in my character, relationships, learning, work, play.
His joy is my song.  His Word, my anchor and sword.
I live all by His grace and all for His glory.
I pledge my life to my Savior and Lord!



There's a book about habits that starts off with a story of training soldiers, of drilling them with commands that they need to learn to obey with immediacy and precision.  And it struck me how practice and training and rote memorization also have a part in my work of growing up these treasure kids that I love.   

So...Cheers!  Here's a K family pledge of allegiance that I hope will stain our hearts with His beauty as we mull over the wonder and lavish great goodness of God- that we get to live in His love and walk in His ways.  May the words of this pledge be a spirit-true prayer from our hearts and lives... as we pursue Him together who first loved us.
