Ask God..to use you! This is a prayer that I have been praying for years. I want God to use me! I WANT God to use ME!! I realized that it is not about what God can do for me but what can I do for God. I used to pray…”help me God”, “give me God”! “I need this or that God!” But it wasn’t until my prayers changed from “all about me” to “all about God” that my heart started changing to wanting to be used by God. I took the focus off me and my needs and started putting my focus on who God really is! I realized that the God that created the Universe cares about me and wants a relationship with me. The God of glory loves me and He loves you! God doesn’t need me to accomplish His plans but He lets me be a part of what He is planning! He gave me purpose! Have you ever heard that if you are helping other people,that it will actually help you as you go through a difficult circumstance. It is so true! When you are helping someone else you temporarily forget about the issues or circumstances in your own life. It gives you a feeling of goodness, kindness and brings a peace that is only from The Lord! So…look around today and ask God to give you opportunities to help someone! Then listen for Him to whisper in your ear and speak to your heart about what you can do! Then is the big step…DO IT!! We have good intentions sometimes and say that “I am going to do______________________” but we fail to carry it out many times! It’s Good Friday!! What can you do to make it a Good Friday for someone today? Let God use you!
I wish you all a blessed and Good Friday!
