Be (My Heart, My Hands, My Voice)

Selah’s New Song & Video “Be (My Heart, My Hands, My Voice)!

In case you have not heard, we wrote, recorded, and made a video last month called “Be.”

We shot it on location in Istanbul, Turkey.

The song was inspired by Jesus words in Matt 16:24-25 (ESV) Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”

I’ve let my “American Dream Theology” define what I think God wants of me, and has called me to. It’s so far from the truth of His Word.

Hopefully this message will remind us we are called to give everything. We are called to suffer, be persecuted even to the point of death if that’s what Jesus requires.

The young women at the beginning of this video (below) is choosing to give everything.

We hope her story encourages and challenges you as it has us.

    Homerun you guys! Thank you for staying faithful on the journey even through your brokenness. Last week someone told me that “God can use greatly those who have been broken deeply”. This song is evidence!

    I have been listening to this song again and again and again. I heard it yesterday when one of my siblings turned it on. It is so true that being a follower of Jesus requires death to ourselves. It is definitely not a life of ease and comfort if you want to be a true follower of Jesus. At times it means losing friends (even in the church) because you wont just go along with sin…like so many others. I think of the passage in Acts that says, “But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.” Acts 4:19
    Thank you guys for sharing the song. May God’s grace be upon you as you seek to be His slaves and His friends…”No Matter the Cost.”

    Living in Turkey makes this song and video so real to me and my husband.
    We cry through it. Start the day as in prayer with it.
    Thank you for inspiring us who live in Turkey

  14. John says:

    Thank you for reaching out to the Muslim people. Watching you openly minister to those on the street in Istanbul was inspiring and brought tears to my eyes. My prayer is that God will use this video and your music to stir others outside their comfort zones. You truly have the heart of missionaries, the same heart that brought the Creator to earth as a Savior.

    Beautiful song!! Thank you so much for denying yourselves to be God’s heart, hands and voice into this world through your ministry of music. Your songs touch the core of my heart and bring such wonderful praise, glory and honor to our Lord and Savior. I denied my calling into the mission field years ago and I am so sorry for that now. I am so glad you have been and are still there. Blessing to you!!

  20. Brenda says:

    Your powerful video brought tears to my eyes over and over again each time I watched it yesterday. My world is so small and too often focused on me and how everything affects me. Thank you for reminding me that it is all about HIM! Your video was playing through my head when I walked my neighborhood and saw a stranger a couple blocks over staggering in his driveway and drinking another beer. I wasn’t bold enough to tell him how much God loves him, but I prayed and asked God to give me another chance. I would not even have thought that way if I hadn’t just seen your video. Thank you.

  21. Stephanie V. says:

    WOW! As I was working today in my kitchen and talking with my Heavenly Father about my future plans, I ran across this song! I can’t even put into words what a blessing this song is to me today!!

  28. Melissa says:

    Dear Selah,

    Tonight in the comfort of my American home I watched this video and sobbed. My faith is too comfortable. My trials are too selfish. I claim to follow Christ but rarely move because of my fear – fear of what? I know God, what do I need to be afraid of?

    I have sat back for too long and longed to share my faith and have done nothing more than couch evangelism. That needs to change. I need to deny myself – deny my comforts.

    Prayers will be offered up tonight. Thank you. Bless your hearts for sharing this with me. Thank you. God bless.


  29. Fred says:

    God Bless to this fellowship…

    Continue to win souls thru your songs…

  31. Cathy Wilson says:

    I heard this song on YouTube about a month ago. It has become my favorite song. As a missionary in North America to immigrants and refugees, I want the words of this song to be my heart and calling.

  32. I have been listening to this song again ,again and again so powerful and touching. I’m from a very small remote community population around 2000 the song is going out and some people are asking for lyric! Can you email it to me.

  35. I’ve posted the video on Thirteen Three Canada’s Facebook wall. Amazing song!! As a part of the Voice of the Martyrs, we understand what a vivid reality this is. The video clearly portrays the outcome of being insanely dedicated to Christ; lives are changed for eternity. I’m a fan!

  36. Ron Riemar says:

    I want to use this song as the Theme song for 2013 for our church. How can I get the sheet music for it?

  37. Wanice Odell says:

    Our church (Roopville Road Baptist Church) Roopville, GA does a missions highlight every Wednesday night during our Discipleship University. It was about 3 weeks ago when I heard this song for the first time. My husband (Rich) and I fell in love with it the minute we heard it. My husband come home from church that night and downloaded it from iTunes. What a blessing it is to our life. We are searching for the soundtrac, is it available yet? Thanks for being a light in a dark world.

  42. Becky says:

    God used this song in my husband and my life. We have been studying the topic of being a true follower of Jesus. This song and testimony of the sweet young girl on here didn’t just move us to tears….it has moved us to act! We are taking up our crosses. We are following what our Savior has been whispering. God used you to sing that calling on our life…and sing it, you did!!! So very, very beautiful!!! This is much more than a pretty song! It is the truth of His calling for every one of us that call ourselves a Christian!
    Thank you!
