Use Me...

I've been pondering these verses.  Ponder.  Ponder.


Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Proverbs 20:11
Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.

1Corinthians 12: 1-12
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant. Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.  Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.  Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

Do you ever wonder how the Lord will use you in this life you've been blessed with?  I do...all the time.  Our lives are made up of moments, and we know we ought to use each moment to the fullest, but how?  I trust that he will show me and I try to remeber to lean on the Word, but there are times when I think..."What am I supposed to do here?  What should I say?  How can I be an asset for good in this situation?"  Sometimes this causes me to over or under-react, or at least think I'm over or under-reacting.  Trust, faith...and remember this verse...
Proverbs 3: 5-6
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
God will show me, in His time.  He will show every one of us who believes in Him.
