A New Song for a New Year

I recently heard "Keep Making Me" by Sidewalk Prophets and liked it instantly.  It's as if God put it before me and said "Here, Jeanette...this is what you need right now."  But once I really focused on the lyrics, I had to re-evaluate whether I wanted to be singing them!  Do I really want to be broken, empty, and lonely?  Those things are scary and can hurt!  But as the song reminds me, those things also lead to healing, fulfillment, and fellowship with Jesus - all of which I desperately need.  So this will be my song for a while.  Praying it will bless and challenge you as well. 

Make me broken
So I can be healed
‘Cause I’m so calloused
And now I can’t feel
I want to run to You
With heart wide open
Make me broken

Make me empty
So I can be filled
‘Cause I’m still holding
Onto my will
And I’m completed
When you are with me
Make me empty
‘Til You are my one desire
‘Til You are my one true love
‘Til You are my breath, my everything
Lord, please keep making me

Make me lonely
So I can be Yours
‘Til I want no one
More than You, Lord
‘Cause in the darkness
I know You will hold me
Make me lonely

Great thought! I have been traveling and it seems "giving" of my time this past few months. Having my routine of study and quiet time with God interrupted has left me longing for God.. PLEASE FILL ME!. I found myself lonely for Him and asking myself why does He hangs in there with me, watching me spend so much energy outside of spending time with Him.. .... I became homesick, broken and lonely.. He met there..
