I LIKE THE APPLE.

“Take my heart transform it.
Take my will conform it.
To Yours oh Lord to Yours…”

Thank you Karin
“The lyrics to the song”:

Song Lyrics

Take my heart and form it
Take my mind, transform it
Take my will conform it
To Yours, to Yours, oh Lord

Holiness, holiness is what I long for
Holiness is what I need
Holiness, holiness is what You want from me

Faithfulness, faithfulness is what I long for
Faithfulness is what I need
Faithfulness, faithfulness is what You want from me

Righteousness, righteousness is what I long for
Righteousness is what I need
Righteousness, righteousness is what You want from me

Take my heart and form it
Take my mind, transform it
Take my will conform it
To Yours, to Yours, oh Lord

Ever since the beginning of memory, I drew, painted, and crafted. As a child, above our family couch was a painting of lush woods and trail leading to a cottage house. I followed the trail with my mind’s eye and invented a family that lived in the cottage. Sometimes I would ”sit“ under a painted tree and imagine the world of the painting. My orientation shifted, I was no longer sitting on the couch, I was under the artfully rendered tree. This was the beginning of a love affair with art.

    So then, you know the song? It is a Christian praise song and I still do not know who wrote the lyrics. Do you?

    The Holy Spirit has been prompting me in many areas of my life. In a very literal sense, I have my sinful nature that is always tempted to engage in that next hot fudge sundae or other lust. I always have that proverbial apple. But I trust in the transformation that is occurring. Does that make sense?
