I’m here for you!

“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying: Who should I send? Who will go for Us? And, I said: Here I am. Send me.”

Isaiah 6:8

I show up;
for You!
I am here
for You!
I am ready
to be used
by You!

But now,
I realize that,
it’s not enough,
to just show up,
You have so much more
on offer for me.
You want so much more
than just my yes.

You want
me to show up.
you want to be
there for me
everyday too!
To live life WITH me!
To give me hope
and purpose
in my yes
to You.

When I show up
to live life with You
I notice that something is different.
You want to be
my Father
and friend.
To love me.
To laugh with me.
To cry with me.
And, just simply
be there for me.

So now,
instead of me,
always saying:
“I’m here for You.”
I will know that
when I say it
You are echoing it
right back to me,
with so much love.

“I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you.”

Isaiah 41:10

I used to only read the top quote, and I believed that’s all it took to say: “I believe; I’m a christian.”. But, lately I’ve been learning more about the meaning behind the second quote, and realized that God wants to live life fully WITH us.
And, when we realize that He wants more than just our yes; He wants our lives; that’s when we can truly start living out our true purpose!

Thanks for reading!
P.S. Here’s a song that inspired this poem!
