Who do you work for?

To be God's angels. That's what everyone on earth could be! We can't be his angels with wings, but we sure can be his angels with feet! Our prayer, every morning of every day, before we get out of our houses or start our day, should be "Use me God, just use me. Use me up. Wring me dry so that by the time I die I don't have a drop more in me to give to you". If you pray to God to use you, to use you as a channel, to speak through your words and work through your hands and walk through your feet, you will see an amazing transformation in the quality of your life and the quality of your being. You will be gifted with opportunities to help in ways you never imagined and never thought you could do. You will be given a fresh new lease of life that extends beyond yourself and your family and friends and embraces the world. I call this being on God's payroll, being His (or Her!) employee. To have God as your boss, I tell you, is infinitely far more satisfying than being on even Bill Gates' payroll!! But the problem is, God does not conscript anyone into this workforce, into his army of helpers. He waits for you to come to him. He waits for His call to be heard. There are no ad campaigns, there are no marketing tricks, there is no compulsion. That is why it is even more important for you to go to Him. Because the world is in need of angels, people! God knows this is needed now more than ever. And any help is welcome!

So, every morning, may this be your prayer: Use me. Use my words to speak your truths. Use me as your channel of wisdom, as your messenger, as your angel-on-earth to do your work for you.

And just watch what happens!

A very profound post, I must say... And quite true as well.

Could I stretch your really great thought, a little further...? Besides asking God, I will ask ME to make use of myself.

God helps those who help themselves. There's never any point in blaming anyone for whatever we are; the beauty is there's A LIFE for everyone on this earth. As you said, we just have to make use of ourselves...

Great post...
