Are You An Arrow In His Hand?

Hey Friends,

How are you?

I'm doing well.

I've been thinking about my own usefulness to the Lord.

Is He pleased with what I've done? What I've accomplished? I'm just at a point where I'm seeing that it's not so much what I do or accomplish, but what I let Him do through me.
I really have great big dreams but I'm seeing that a lot of that doesn't matter if I'm not being right now who He wants me to be.

Psalm 127 says, "Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth."
Well I'm a son of God. I want to be an arrow in His hand. I want to hit His target.
I want to be used by God to accomplish His purposes not just my dreams.

Jer. 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord
Plans to prosper you and not to harm you
Plans to give you hope and a future.

I do believe God will do something with my life. But I believe if I died now I would die a success.

As a matter of fact:
I remember when I was 19 I was working in the college cafeteria loading dishes into this big steamy dishwasher. As I stood there I realized that if I were to die right then I would die a success. I thought back over all the things that I had done and the lives I had touched with God's love. I was a success, even at the age of 19.

I realize that as long as I stayed submitted to Him and let Him use me then I live in constant success.

Yet I have something bigger on the inside of me. Yes I'm happy at this point with all that's been done. But I still feel this pressure from the inside out. I believe there is more that God wants to do in and through me. I want to serve Him with a long full, fruitful life.
