Wednesday Word

A couple of weeks ago I attended church with friends.  Before the message, we were asked to turn to page 477, Make Me A Blessing!  It’s been a long time since I heard this beautiful hymn.  It came back to me as if I had been singing it all my life.  I smiled from ear to ear, as I quietly sang Make Me a Blessing.  How rich this hymn is!  Let me share it with you:

Out in the high-ways and by-ways 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 power 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.

I thanked the Lord that day for this song of consecration, the sweet reminder that we as the children of God should have this song as our anthem for life.  Lord, use me to be a blessing in everyone’s life that I meet, being no respecter of persons.
