He is sending me – can you believe it? What about you?

John 20:21 KVJ Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

Father, I have no clue why you would even look at a person like me and think, “I am going to send her out to share her story with the world, and she will be ok!” Me – Joyce Gerald – a classic introvert who would rather sit and watch than sit and chat.  I would rather have my tooth pulled than talk to a stranger. BUT GOD!! Father you are using me to do just that. You are using me to tell my conversion story. Tell of your grace. Tell of your mercy. Talk to people whom I would never talk to.  Positions, titles, and hierarchy has never been an issue for me. I just don’t like talking to people.  I like to be the hermit.  So, I know Father than if you can use me to reach other for you-you can you anyone at anytime.  I am willing to be sent.  I ‘m ready to step out of my comfort zone and allow the Holy Spirit to do the speaking and the reaching out to others.

Matthew 28:18-20 KJV And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, [Father I believe with all of my being that] you [are with me] always, even unto the end of the world. 

I can go forward and talk to strangers – sometimes – because I know that I am NOT really doing it by and off myself.  I also know that I do not have to have the sum total of all knowledge or comprehend every type of theology or even have the answers to every construct. I just know that you love me, died for me, came to give freedom and peace of mind to all people groups across the entire world and I just need to be open to you using me. So, when I become scared because I don’t want to leave my home.  Or when I hurt so much from the fibromyalgia that I would rather just stay in bed than go out and meet at least one person send me out anyway, Father.  When I just want to vegetate at home and not go into a crowded room and mingle with total strangers remind me who I am and whose I am and also that you have chosen to send me for such a time as this.
