Is your life a channel of blessing

Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is the love of God flowing through you?
Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
Are you ready His service to do?
  Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
  Make me a channel of blessing today.
Is your life a channel of blessing?
Are you burdened for those that are lost?
Have you urged upon those who are straying,
The Savior who died on the cross?
We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from all sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.

My children and I came across this hymn, and are singing it to begin our homeschool day this week. After singing it for the first time today, I prayed to God; I put the lyrics into prayer. God gave us an opportunity to be a channel of His blessing for someone we have been praying for for over two months!

What a wonderful song, can't stop singing it. The devotional today was about how Joseph was a blessing to the Egyptians and the whole world during his time. My new prayer point from now on is Lord make me a channel of Blessing to everyone around me in Jesus name. Amen.

The Lord brought the chorus to my mind every time I was covering my father or holding his hand at the hospital. At one point I stopped to "hear" what was being played in my mind and this was the hymn. The Lord was showing His love for my father through me.

I hadn’t thought of this hymn for a long time but it came to mind during my quiet time. The lyrics are my prayer as I go into counseling sessions today with my clients. I was touched by the comments from believers around the world! Surely our God is great and I send His love and blessings to you especially during this Thanksgiving season.

This hymn, also my old time favourite, was ringing in my mind for days now. I Googled the title and this site came up. Looking at the words oft this inspiring and very challenging hymn and reading all the comments make me realise that I need to die to self and clear the channel to be a clean vessel fit for the masters use. Thank you for sharing and I pray we all are ready to be channels of Blessings.

As I was praying to be used this hymn came up. It has always been a favorite of mine from a very young age. I believe it's a pointer to my kingdom work. Lord make me a channel of blessings I pray. Equip me for the work I pray. Help me do that which you have assigned to me. Use me I pray. Amen and amen. In Jesus' name

This hymn is inspiring, it keeps someone on the check, and its makes us to know that our life is a mirror before their eyes and a blessing to them.

This hymn came to my mind today when reading the devotional book "God Calling" edited by A. J. Russell. I was reading the entry for November 7. It makes the point that anything blocking our channel is only of ourself (self). We must keep self out and ask His Spirit to flow through. As a result, others will be helped and drawn to Him from coming in contact with us when we are unblocked channels. Others are helped and blessed by His Spirit flowing through us. And as said above in the comment for May 16, 2010, we have to realize that we are not the blessing, we are the channel, just as Jesus says "I am the vine and you are the branches."
