I’ve been reading through some of my old journals and thought I’d share this prayer/poem from the Summer of 2009 while I was the Site Coordinator at a camp. May it remind us that we are not fit to serve God, but we are called and he’ll give us all we need to do the tasks he sets before us.
I sit once again at the end of a day.
Yet heart burning inside.
God is big.
He does not fail.
Each day, I wake up… by the grace of God.
Each day, I screw up… by my own sinful nature.
Each day… I fail.
Each day… He doesn’t.
“You’re in charge! Make a decision”
I don’t want to.
My final decision: Pray for wisdom.
Wisdom like Solomon.
A breadth of understanding.
Like Solomon, I too pray…
“I am only a little child, and do not know how to carry out my duties.” (1 Kings 3:7)
“… give your servant a discerning heart.” (1 Kings 3:9)
I don’t understand why you’ve picked me, but here I am… called to serve… SEND ME!
Equip me! Strengthen me! Use me!
I am Yours!
