Choose Me Lord
I find myself in a place where I just want to be used by the Lord. It doesn't matter when, where or how. I just want him to use me. I can imagine myself as a small child with my hand raised, jumping up and down, anxiously saying ooh, ooh, ooh Lord pick me, choose me, I'll do it. Not knowing what the task is or what it would require of me, just eager to do something for the Lord.
This also makes me think of what it could've been like to be with the Lord before our lifetime here on earth. There are many people that believe that we chose our lives before we are born. Just imagine the Lord saying , I need someone to go be a drug addict, an abused child, the parent of a child that wouldn't live long or any of our current life circumstances. In His presence, I can imagine any of us saying, 'yes, choose me Lord, I will go'. With the same zeal of a small child that I imagined earlier.
When bad things happen we often ask, why Lord? But instead of asking why, because we may never understand 'the why'. I believe we should trust and have faith that He has a plan. That His plan is perfect and that we all play a part in His plan. Sometimes the lesson in our situations is not for us, it maybe for someone close to us or even someone we have never met. I believe he uses us to help each other in all sorts of ways, directly and indirectly.
So no matter what you've gone through in life, whatever your life conditions are, I believe that we are all being used by Him in some way, to serve His purpose and to complete His plan. Even if we never understand 'the why' we need to trust Him. He knows exactly what's going on with all of us.

KJV Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
KJV Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths
