He uses us if we are willing

I called her today. She needed someone to pray for her and asked if I could meet her. Funny thing is, in the craziness of my schedule, I had about 1 1/2 hours. I honestly didn't know what I would say, my head hasn't been that clear and my heart is worse. So I did the only thing I know to do. I prayed. Whatever You need her to hear, Lord, just say it, my voice Your words.

So we met, and not only do I think that I helped her, get closer to Him, I got closer to Him. In His words for her, I heard His words for me. As if to put a mirror in front of me and speak directly to my heart, and hers.

I don't know why, because I know how big God is, I know He's loving, trustworthy, BIG and small at the same time, I know He does all, makes all, loves all, He's grace and mercy giving, and yet, I'm still surprised at how much He loves me and that He finds me in all places, in all times. And that He loves me enough to even want to find me.

And no matter what I am going through, no matter how small I feel or weak, He is all the strength I need.

Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength
