Can You Please, Lord,Take Me Out Of ME?

Updated on May 31, 2013

Can You Please,Lord ,Take Me Out Of Me?

Lord, take it out of me ,every wicked evil thought,

Help me only think ,say or do everything I ought.

Take me out of me and take Your Rightful Place,

Take out everything unneeded, fill an empty space.

Let all the world see You and not this aging shell.

Let them hunger for Love they cannot buy or sell.

Those we tell of Thy Love will not all come to Thee,

They may look upon You but Thy Beauty never see.

All men won't be saved, we like to think they would.

Some won't give up the world ,don't think they could.

Lord, if You can help me to make a sinner see,

Please give me all it takes to bring the lost to Thee.

I've never had the gift of speech as others I know,

And I am unable to go where others often may go.

But if you can use a gift ,like a pen within my hand,

Can You can use me ,to make the lost to understand.!


At times it seems like we let ourselves get

in the way forgetting that we may do more

damage to God's cause,not meaning to .

we had better know where we stand if

we are going to try to bring souls to God.

God just needs your hands and feet and

He will do the rest and do a much better

job, He has had a lot more experience !

      Hi Ann,glad to hear from you , I wasn't sure about this poem but I woke up with it going in my head so I guess God wanted it here,I wasn't sure if everybody would know what I was talking about but it looks like they did .Sometimes I get words that I think there is no way I could make anything out of it ,that is what I thought when God gave me the Words A Tingle and A Jingle ,but it worked out , Talk later,Clara

      To be clay. Then He can mold. Giving up the throne we are sitting on.

      That is what we as Christians, strive for Clara.

      Good message.

      Yep, when we are willing and obedient, God uses us to show His great love. As for me and my house, we shall follow the Lord God with every breath.
