I often wonder how much we really think about what we're singing in church every Sunday. I played an old favourite hymn at the close of the service a while ago, but I had to question how honest I was being.
Really? Even a Sunday school teacher, week in, week out, all year long? Even volunteering to be on the weekly church-cleaning rotation? Even a Bible study leader? A gracious host to friends, family, and people we don't know so well when hospitality doesn't come naturally? Saying, "Why don't we pray about it right now?" when a friend is sharing her burdens, and then praying together even when it's not something I'm particularly comfortable with?
Am I really willing to go where He wants me to go, or do what He wants me to do ~ BE who He wants me to be ~ when that still, small voice whispers, "I need you right here."?
