"Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?' And I said, 'Here am I. Send me!" Isaiah 6:8
"Here am I, send me!" What is powerful about this response from Isaiah is that he did not know where the Lord was sending him. He simply heard the call, and he responded. It was in the presence of the Lord that his heart was compelled to answer, and he became a willing vessel in God's hands.
The Lord continues to send out calls today. When we feel a tugging on our heart to respond to a need, to provide comfort to the hurting, to provide hope to the hopeless, and to bring light to dark places, it is the Lord calling His people to act on His behalf.
God has called us to fight on behalf of women and children facing unplanned pregnancy in Cook County. He called, and we said, "Here we are, send us." And I am grateful to each of you who have also answered the call by your giving, volunteering and by praying for our ministry. Let us continue to remain in His presence so that we will always be ready to respond to the voice of the Lord.
