Send Me

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” Isaiah 6:8 (ESV)

Isaiah accepted the challenge the Lord gave him to go and speak to the people. The Lord told Isaiah what He wanted him to say and Isaiah even asked how long he was supposed to speak of it all. (If you go and read Isaiah 6:8-13 you will see the concise instructions Isaiah was given.)

When I began writing again, it was a gentle push from a friend to consider sharing some sensitive information about myself. I believed God was asking me to open up and let others know they’re not alone in life. That’s a scary thing to do…especially living in a small town. But as I was being gently pushed, I began to trust that God would do the talking and I would do the typing.

My goal is to share with the world that God is good, no matter what your circumstances are. It can be hard to believe God can use you when you’re hurting or grieving or dealing with whatever life has thrown at you…when you’re in the middle of the storm. But I felt God asking once again, “Whom shall I send?”

So I offered myself. I offered to be His vessel. (The enemy has not liked that, by the way.) I keep asking God how to authentically open up my heart and share my life’s experiences with others. Many people suffer in silence and feel they’re all alone in their circumstances. They don’t want to bother anyone. I don’t want anyone to feel all alone. Ever. Jesus is there. I am here, if you choose. If the words God lays upon my heart can help one person, then praise be to God.

I may not be the most popular person on Instagram. I may not have the most likes or followers, but I’m doing what I’m feel led to do. Sharing my heart. Sharing Jesus. Sharing the gospel that saves.

Here I am, Lord. Send me. Send me to the broken places of people’s hearts. Give me the words to speak life into them and be a friend. Help me know how to help and not cause harm. Show me how to be Christ-like in this assignment from You. Help me to be real and honest and raw. As scary as it feels, I know You will use it all for good. Lord, you have asked this of me. I don’t know who You’re trying to reach, but I trust they’ll be found. I submit myself to You in this journey, Jesus. Use me. Teach me. Guide me. Help me show loving kindness and grace. Amen.

Dear one, If God sends you on a mission, you can bet He will faithful to lead the way. Accept His invitation. He will give you what You need to complete the mission.
