All to You...

Caleb with Lincoln Brewster

Tonight our county fair was blessed with an amazing concert by Lincoln Brewster. It was the first time our fair has had a Christian artist perform in the grand stands. Many people have been praying for years for this to happen and it was such a blessing. Thank you Franklin County Fair Board!!

Tonight Lincoln sang a song called All to You, it is a powerful song.

You called me Lord
You know my name
I'm standing out
I'm not ashamed
No, no

I've searched and came up empty

This world has nothing for me
You are my one and only

I'm living my life for You

And I'm giving everything to You
Not holding back, from every part
I'm giving it all to You

You are the Lord of all I am

And, I'll never be the same again
I've searched and came up empty
This world has nothing for me
You are my one and only

I'm living my life for You

And I'm giving everything to You
Not holding back, from every part
I'm giving it all to You

I'm living my life for You

And I'm giving everything to You
Not holding back, from every part
I'm giving it all to You

I'm living my life for You

And I'm giving everything to You
Not holding back, from every part
I'm giving it all to You

I'm giving it all to You

Take all of me
I'm giving it all to You
Take all of me

I'm giving it all to You

Take all of me
I'm giving it all to You
Take all of me


As he was signing this tonight I had a special time with God and I got to really thinking about the words, Giving it all to You, Take all of me. I was singing it along with him and using it as a prayer. What does it mean to give it all to You? What does it mean to ask Him to take all of me? Can I do it, can I give God ALL of me? That includes everything, my attitudes, my family, my thoughts, my money, my life...none of it is mine; it all belongs to Him. When I offer Him all of me, does that mean that I give Him everyday, every minute and every second of me? Do I get to keep any for just me? I need to hold nothing back and give it All to Him!

Giving it all to God can be scary, but it doesn't have to be. It should be exciting, because God is waiting to take us on an amazing journey. When we give it all to Him, life will never be the same! Make this your daily prayer, give it All to Him...

    You're so right. Thanks for sharing that. I'm glad you had a good time fair and concert. We missed ours this year because of other activities going on, but we had a great line-up of Christian artists too.

  3. What a neat answer to prayer about the Christian artist at the state fair. I can relate to having a conversation/prayer with God while I am singing and worshiping -- love that -- love those challenging thoughts of yours.
