Lord, Keep Making Me …

A couple days ago I heard the song Keep Making Me, by Sidewalk Prophets, for the first time. It absolutely pierced my soul. This is the perfect song for this season in my life. Here are the lyrics:

“Keep Making Me”

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 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

[Chorus:]
‘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

Ok, so I’m good with broken and empty, but lonely??? That’s a little much, Lord, isn’t it? I mean, it’s not good for man (or woman) to be alone, right? Then again, Paul said it’s better not to marry. I guess he was right. It’s definitely easier to concentrate on one’s relationship with God when not distracted by the cares of a family. I know I’m definitely depending on God more as a single mom who is going through a divorce than I was when I thought everything was going fine.
“Make me lonely …  ‘Til I want no one more than You, Lord.” Yes, Lord, this is my prayer because I know that this really is the secret of a truly blessed life. I can’t say I’m there yet, but I want to be.
