"Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?"

The Lord responds to Paul's question with "Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do."  This phrase is from Acts 9:6.

I was reading a devotional this evening and that verse came to my mind.  How many times have you asked the Lord "What do you want me to do?"  Sometimes it seems that you may get an answer immediately and other times you must wait patiently for the answer.

This question prompted me after months to start writing.  I don't know if I'll be a regular blogger but I do know that for some reason I felt compelled to write this down.  Maybe the Lord is telling me that before too long I will have to "Arise".  Maybe he's telling me that I've been patient long enough and he's going to give me the answer to what I've been asking.  "What do you want me to do?"

Charlie tells me often that we must be ready when he calls.  We must be prepared because you never know when or where he'll ask you to go.  Lord, let me be ready and willing for whatever you have for me to do!
