A Heart that bleeds

I have been thinking about the the things that God has for me to do in my life. Sometimes I forget to truly seek God's will in my life, and just get so caught up in living. I really want God to teach me and use me this summer, so I will be more prepared for being in a leadership position. Ahh! Sometimes I can't believe that I am going to be an RA. I feel like I have so much to learn before I can even begin to help others with their life. I am in need of the wisdom that can only come from the Lord! I love what Alan Redpath said,

"We are prepared to serve the Lord only by sacrifice. We are fit for the work of God only when we have wept over it, prayed about it, and then we are enabled by Him to tackle the job that needs to be done. May God give to us hearts that bleed, eyes that are wide open to see, minds that are clear to interpret God's purposes, wills that are obedient, and a determination that is utterly unflinching as we set about the tasks He would have us do."

I want my heart to bleed for people. I want to be completely committed to serving others with all that I am. I don't want to second guess myself by thinking that I have nothing to offer. There is nothing I want more than to wholeheartedly serve God, and people. Sometimes I feel so passionate for somebody, and then the feeling disappears, and I forget that I wanted to pray for them, or help them in some way. I want to be more focused on preparing for the tasks that the Lord has set out for me.
