Kept for the Master’s Use’ is based on Frances Ridley Havergal’s famous own hymn ‘Take My Life and Let It Be, Consecrated, Lord to Thee’. It consists of sepa¬rate chapters on each couplet of that well-known hymn.
Frances Ridley Havergal encourages us to take very single aspect of our life and consecrate it for the Lord's use, and we are shown very clearly that ‘He who is able and willing to take unto Himself is no less able and willing to keep for Himself’.
Havergal encourages us to choose this day whom we will serve with real, thoroughgoing, wholehearted service, ‘and the Lord will receive you; and you will find, as we have found, that He is such a good Master that you are satisfied with His goodness, and that you will never want to go out free’.

Except in this book, written to those who have already given themselves to the Lord, she changes the word "take" to "keep". Amazing, she says that the hardest thing for most people to give to the Lord is their voice.
It was hard to listen to, so I will need to listen to it again.
