Lord Send Me

My prayer….Here’s my heart served up for you.  Take it Lord and do what you want with it.

So he gives me hurting and broken people.

How do I help the broken people? The alone people? The lost?  Sometimes I feel so inadequate or I tell myself things like my job or my family come first. Families and jobs are important but that also depends on the circumstances of which thing is God sending me to do at the moment.  Sometimes I wonder if I am a hypocrite?  I wonder do I sometimes want from others what I can’t give of myself?

She was broken and felt so alone.  She knew Jesus and she knew he was there yet today things were really messed up in her life. Things were spinning out of control and she was spiraling down the pit of despair and for some reason she just couldn’t feel him as close as he used to feel.  She reached out to people, but they had things going on in their lives and they were too busy to notice and those who did notice her pain didn’t know what to do, so they just avoided what was staring them right in the face. Many knew she had Jesus and told themselves that she knew where to turn.

And the truth is Jesus IS…always here and he is where she needed to turn.

We tell ourselves that Jesus is always with them, and that we are not him and that they need to turn to him not us.

We may even say that to them ….

Because we tell them what we know.  We may tell them they’re not alone that they always have Jesus but isn’t it our job to show Jesus to them? Who are his hands? Who is supposed to shine his light? Doesn’t he do his work through us?

We ask God to send us and yet when he puts someone right in front of us instead of being there we have other things to do.  So many things are blocking the way… so we say we will pray.

We pray he will help them. We pray he will show them that they are not alone….

Could it be he sent us in answer to that prayer? Did we give back to God what he gave us to do?

Maybe we are supposed to be the one to show them the hope. To take the time and show them the love of God.

Here I am Lord send me….

And when you send me please help me to see.

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

    very good read! Jesus wants us to be his hands and feet and have the same desire to serve others as he has…..if that were truly so, we wouldn’t need the govt would we? God bless!

    Yes, this is so true! I myself have been on both ends of this, both as the one in need and as the one struggling, as you mention, with feeling inadequate. For those I’m close to, it’s not so difficult, but when God is moving on my heart for a total stranger, that is much more challenging.

    I too pray that He will fill me so much with His love that I can’t help but go to the one in need and pour out that love upon them however He desires me to.

    Great post! Thank you for sharing and exhorting us as you exhort yourself to say, “Here I am, Lord, send me,” and then going as He sends.

    Your message T reminds me of a Post I did about a man who missed God’s voice in the everyday things that happened because he was looking for a big sign.

    Yes we need each other, God said to Adam although they were in close fellowship that it was not good for Adam to be alone, we too need others and in the Body of Christ with Jesus as the Head we are complete.

        Sorry it took so long T to reply with the link but as you know a lot has happened since I wrote this comment, thank you again for your prayers.

        I thought that I had posted this Story but as I shared with you I added it to a message at the time my Mum died last year, it was God’s assurance that I was not alone in the Storm and I now realize He wanted to prepare me for the news about Ron’s Cancer too, which I didn’t know when I told you about this Story but when I looked for the Link it all fitted together… I do not know what is ahead only God knows the future but I do know without doubt… God is good all the Time and oh how He Loves you and me.

    Awesome post with excellent reminder… we are His Hands and His feet. He lives in us and uses us to touch others. How many of us will say, “Lord, use me!!” and then do it? God bless you!

    Sister T, this one is a great confirmation to me as I am in the process of an article that will probably be entitled, “Where does your light shine?!” You are the second person in two days with a post that has confirmed I am on the right track. I DON’T believe in coincidence but in the guidance of the Holy Spirit and He is ALWAYS faithful and gracious in His leading!! Thanks for YOUR heart after the Spirit, dear Sister in Christ! 🙂
