I borrowed this title from my Bible Reading today. My heart started beating fast as I saw this title and the Lord began speaking to me. I have been struggling a bit and letting life get in the way of my Walk with God somewhat, but God is still with me during these times. Here is what is on my heart….
Today I am overwhelmed with looming bills, loved ones that don’t know Jesus, friends and family facing huge family struggles, friends and family fighting disease and even some preparing to leave this earth. My heart is breaking for them, myself and this world as chaos continues and satan fights to keep us estranged from God. My question is…What can I do? Where can I help? How can I be useful?What on earth am I here for? I am not an influencer, rich or brilliant…I am ordinary. What does God want from me… He wants me to be willing, to be honest, to be open and to GO. Wow not that simple right? Through all of this I can be useful….When a friend is in need go and just sit with them, hold them, feed them (with food and the Living Word of God, if asked to), do their housework, grocery shopping…anything that helps them see hope. Just BE…be Jesus to them, no questions asked, just dive in wash those piles of clothes, clean the kitchen, be an ear for them, be a shoulder to lean on…JUST BE. This is tough, because we all have advise, “wisdom” to share and agendas to a point. That is not useful most times, but just BE-ING IS. Unfortunately satan is stepping up his game attacking wherever he can. I hate to admit that I have been fearing about things God has already given me Hope and Peace about. How can I be useful to God…by not arguing with the world, but showing through my words and actions JESUS. Jesus says BE READY and WILLING. I am striving to be both in this world that is arguing and chaotic.
During these uncertain days here is how I am ready… I am in the Word daily, prayerful continually and willing to go. Thank you Jesus for calling me. Help me be ready to go and faithful to Your Voice.
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Isaiah 6:8 NIV
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:35-40 NIV
Let us GO and BE this week and thank you for letting me share my heart and for loving me and just BE-ING.
