Sunday Musings

Reading through Isaiah a month or so ago, these verses stood out to me.

Also 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

Many years ago, this verse was written in a small card I had been given as I began a new job. The implication was that I had stepped up to do the job as God had called me. Unfortunately, as I look back, I realize that I didn't always do the best job that I could and I certainly didn't work "as unto the Lord." I've often wondered if the faith that person placed in me was mis-placed. But I realize now that her faith did not lie in me, but rather in the Lord.

Now as I ponder what direction the Lord would have me take next in my life, I want to stand before Him and say "Here am I, send me." Where will He send me? Will I hear Him when he declares the way? Or will I, once again, blindly follow the way I want to go?

There is a little devotional I read called "Daily Strength for Daily Needs" by Mary W. Tileston. You can buy it on amazon.com. It is a wodnerful little book, not feel good fluff, but solid Scripture and classic writers. I especially like the days where I am reminded to work for the Lord in the small daily tasks of my every day life.
