The Garden In My Dreams
One of my most favorite adventures is a good hiking tip. It does not happen without much training and preparation. You cannot live a sedentary life and expect to hike 10 miles because you decided it would be fun.
I so enjoy cooking and partaking of a great gourmet meal. It does not happen without multiple steps of preparation including planning the menu, buying the groceries, doing the prep-- If you are not prepared, you might end up at Mickey D's.
Anything worth accomplishing requires at least two steps before enjoying the final product.
Making the decision to go for it--
And doing the preparation required to accomplish it-
The end result will be only as good as the preparation.
Reading the great prophet Isaiah's words today, I was struck by his infamous words
HERE I AM,
But to be used by God, He first had to confess His unworthiness to see The King, the Lord Almighty. God then sent His seraph to burn away the sin--taking away Isaiah's guilt and atoning for his sin. Then God asked,
WHOM SHALL I SEND?
And because Isaiah had done the necessary preparation, God used him when he asked to be used.
I pray daily for God to show me how He desires to use me. My question after reading this scripture---Have I done the preparation necessary?
He said, "Go and tell this people,"
