Use Me If You Can
I can't do much. I'm a pretty good singer. Not great, just pretty good.
I was a descent music director. I had my moments of greatness, and my moments of embarrassment. I did some good stuff. I love directing orchestras best of all.
I drum. I'm not Buddy Rich or Gene Krupa, but I can still play a set of drums.
You see, I used what I had. I took the seeds of my gifts and abilities and used them as far as I could.
I'm now a writer. I write to encourage mankind and give words of hope and inspiration. I've not written any best-sellers, nor is my name a household name in writing circles, but I use the gift I have, and I've developed it further than it was ten years ago.
Today, in my reading, this jumped on me.
Isaiah 6:8 "Also, I heard the voice of the Lord saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, here am I. Send me."
A quote in my files says this:
"God uses whoever is available.
Wow. That is what it comes down to.
And I for one want to be available.
All my talents, all my skills.
The thoughts I think.
The way I act.
The words I utter.
Here I am. Send me, God.
