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?
