Take Me, Break Me, Make Me

Take Me

  • Receive Me.
  • Don’t leave me on the pile.
  • Choose me.
  • Call me.
  • I’m Available.

Break Me

  • You use broken things, I’m willing to fall on the Rock and be broken.
  • Not my will, but thine be done.
  • I’ll say yes.
  • David said – “Before I was afflicted, I went astray.”

Make Me

  • Mold Me – Like a Potter molds a vessel.
  • Make me an instrument.
  • Prodigal said – “Make me as one of thy hired servants.”
  • “Make me what I ought to be, help me to be more like thee.”

  2. Bro. Ballestero; Thank you for this post.
    This was written a long time ago, but it’s still my prayer…
    Chorus: “Break my heart
    With the things that break Your heart,
    Let me see what You see when You look at me,
    Make me over, anew, into –
    A vessel that’s fit to be used by You.
    For I know if I continue – in my own way,
    I can never be used by You – so this I pray…
    “Let me see, help me to be,
    What You would have me to be.
    Verse: My heart is deceitful and wicked,
    And my flesh minds not the things of Christ,
    If I’d be used in His precious Body…
    I must let Him rule and reign in my life.
