today's reading.
Judges 5    Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day...

the blog.
Quite the song today in Judges 5:1-31. I wish we could hear the actual melody and take it in just as it was sung way back when. Now that's not possible, but I'm thankful that we can at least take in and consider the words of this song of celebration. As I was doing that this morning, what was conveyed in verses 2 and 9 totally touched my heart. "That the leaders took the lead in Israel, that the people offered themselves willingly, bless the Lord!" and "My heart goes out to the commanders of Israel who offered themselves willingly among the people." These words really made me stop and think about how and what I offer to the Lord and how I could do more and better.

So think about this--are you offering yourself willingly to the Lord? Are there any areas where you could be more open and willing? How will you get there? Tami W.
