This is intensely personal and has a great deal to do with my faith and how I look at how I should live.
I have sung this song quite a few times in my life but, as we sang it at the close of worship service today, a thought struck me.
This is my heart song, my life song.
This is what I want my life to be about, my efforts, my desires, and what I want to be evident in the way I go through this life.
|Out in the highways and byways of life,
Many are weary and sad;
Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife,
Making the sorrowing glad.
|Make me a blessing, make me a blessing,
Out of my life may Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O Savior, I pray,
Make me a blessing to someone today.
|Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love,
Tell of His pow’r to forgive;
Others will trust Him if only you prove
True, every moment you live.
|Give as ’twas given to you in your need,
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed,
Unto your mission be true.
