Hymn & Scripture Challenge # 5 - May the Mind of Christ My Savior


What a beautiful song this is and for the first time, it took me a while to recognize this song.  I had heard it before, but it was when I was a child and it did not click.  But the more you listen to it, the more beautiful it becomes.  You must check out Patter's post on this as she talks about it verse by verse and adds scripture along with each verse.  Her write up is just wonderful.  Of course as always she gives the history of the song and the writer.  You can find her post here!  Also I used this for the Word Art Wednesday challenge this week and also got the scripture from there.  As soon as I saw the scripture, I knew that would be the scripture for this page.  If I am doing what this verse says, then the mind of Christ is living in me.  And, I can honestly say that I strive daily to live my life for Christ.  Not always the easiest journey, but definitely the most rewarding journey I have ever been on.  Jesus is my all and without Him I am nothing and I realize that!

"I will praise you Lord with all my heart. I will tell of all the marvelous things You have done.  I will be filled with joy because of You. I will sing praises to Your name, O Most High." Psalm 9:1-2

Hi Jonia, thank you for sharing this beautiful scrapbook hymn page at Scripture Thursday. I don't think I'm familiar with this hymn and will definitely have to look into it. Thank you as well for sharing what this verse and hymn mean to you. Your page portrays this beautifully. ~ Abby
