His Hands, His feet...

What an awesome opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ in a foreign land! It's only 8 days until I leave for China now. As I've been praying, I've been overwhelmed with the fact that Christ counts me worthy to serve Him! In the Casting Crowns song, "Go where he sends me" the words describe my heart right now.

"...I am willing yet am so afraid
you give me strength when I say ...
I wanna be your hands, I wanna be your feet
I'll go where you send me, go where you send me
I'll be your hands, I'll be your feet
I'll go where you send me, go where you send me
And I'll try, yeah I'll try
to touch the world like you touched my life
And I'll find my way
To be your hands
I'll abandon every selfish thought
I surrender everything I've got
You can have everything I am
And perfect everything I'm not
I am willing, I'm not afraid
you give me strength when I say ...
I wanna be your hands
I wanna be your feet
I'll go where you send me, go where you send me

All He asks is that we are willing to let Him work in and through us. We just have to be empty vessels that contain His Spirit. He will accomplish everything He chooses to accomplish in and through us if we are just willing...I don't have to be strong, I don't have to be learned, I don't have to be anything but empty...

Let me always remember that I am deeply loved, completely forgiven, fully pleasing, totally accepted and absolutely complete in Christ. As I empty myself and allow Him full access, He will overflow my life with His love and joy. May it radiate out so others can see Him living in me.
