March Message from Wendy Showalter

HERE I AM

Sometimes we forget just how big God is. In fact, we even forget the truth that God is unfathomably big. We are short sighted and self-absorbed so often that we neglect a relationship with God – who is so amazing.

Have you ever felt the Holy Spirit tugging at your heart? Have you ever felt the nudging and leading of His hand? That voice that whispers, “Come be with me. Open my word, internalize its truth. I will transform you,” and then rolled over and went back to sleep? Or, decided to keep watching your favorite TV show instead? If so, then think on this simple analogy: a powerful politician or leader of a national societal issue asks to meet with you to discuss a current topic.  Wow!  The publicity – the notoriety – the fame!  Would you accept the invitation?  Would you go?

Many of us would answer yes. We would quickly respond to the call of someone so powerful and important. I’m sure by now you understand where this is headed — but there is none more important, more powerful, or more worthy of our time than God! Yet so many times we turn to things so unimportant by comparison, and ignore the very God who made and saved us. When God calls us, we should be as Samuel was, responding immediately, “Here I am!”
