A song for the work of your hands this week

Are you feeling weary as you labor for your family today? Making holiday meals, getting gifts ready, planning advent activities, making memories. As enjoyable as these holidays are, they can be wearisome for the Mama that’s trying to pull it all off and still keep a sweet spirit in the midst of it.
A few of my Facebook friends shared this song, and I thought it was so appropriate for this season as Moms that I wanted to share it with you. Put it on your iPod and listen to this as you offer the work of your hands today. Do it for your family, yes, but do it ultimately for your Savior.

Before You I Kneel (A Worker’s Prayer)

By Keith and Kristyn Getty

Before You I kneel, my Master and Maker,
To offer the work of my hands.
For this is the day You’ve given Your servant;
I will rejoice and be glad
For the strength I have to live and breathe,
For each skill Your grace has given me,
For the needs and opportunities
That will glorify Your great name.
Before You I kneel and ask for Your goodness
To cover the work of my hands.
For patience and peace to shape all my labor,
Your grace for thorns in my path.
Flow within me like a living stream,
Wear away the stones of pride and greed
‘Til Your ways are dwelling deep in me
And a harvest of life is grown.
Before You we kneel, our Master and Maker;
Establish the work of our hands.
And order our steps to seek first Your kingdom
In every small and great task.
May we live the gospel of Your grace,
Serve Your purpose in our fleeting days,
Then our lives will bring eternal praise
And all glory to Your great name.
Listen to the song here.
