Daily Miracle Message
One of the prayers of my life has been, “Use me”. I recognize that I’ve been given a lot of talents, gifts and resources. So have you. What if you turned it all over to God, right now, and said, “Use me”?
It seems a little gesture. Like, what can I do? Little old me?
But it is a great request. And it leads to great things.
Your life is filled with promise. You were born that way. And though you may have forgotten, God didn’t forget about you. The best thing you can do, right now, is say, “Use me, Father”.
You will never know all that you have done to serve God. You have forgotten most of those tiny gestures. But many, many lives have been saved because of you. You wouldn’t be here right now, living and breathing, reading this book, if God didn’t have a great plan for you.
All you have to do is let everything go, all your regrets and mistakes (if you have any) – even your past glories – and turn everything, I mean everything, good and bad, proud of and not proud of, both hope and despair… and say, “I don’t know what I’ve done so far, but please use me for the rest of it.”
And He will.
Boy, has my life changed since I turned that phrase. From self-serve to High Service! I still have a long way to go, but I never give up asking God to make my life count and push me to do what needs to be done.
And I have never been more content.
It doesn’t matter what is going on in my life, one way or another, God turns it all around and makes everything turn out great. And it just keeps getting better. Sure, I am still challenged, I still suffer, but overall, as I look back, I am amazed at his goodness and response to my call, and mine to his!
When you’re in doubt, when you don’t know what to do, when you think you’ve made too many mistakes, or that it’s too late, just say this tiny prayer and your whole world will change:
Daily Miracle Prayer
Dear God, Use me. I may have made a lot of mistakes and wasted a lot of time. I can’t take that back. But I can give you everything I have now. Take my whole life: my talents, my gifts, my mistakes. Make everything right. Make everything great. For the rest of my days… Use me. Amen.
Daily Miracle Blessing
There is nothing, nothing you can do to stop my Love for you. You have not fallen off my page. I still have your name on my list. I have a plan that needs your gifts. Let go of all your cares and just say, “Use me”. And I will make all things right.
