Servant’s Heart

Whom shall I send? The Lord asked
Who will be called for a special task?
“Who will go for me”, who indeed
Who will be used to meet the need?

Many have answered this very call
Some gave a little and some gave all
Will I have the courage to say here I am?
Send me to follow the example of the Lamb

I desire to follow You and Your will
I need strength to make my fear be still
I offer myself to complete my part
Anoint me to have a servant’s heart



Brothers and sisters,

This is the third in a series that the Lord has given me. Ironically enough, the heart was the message during Wednesday’s service. The idea first came to write Imprisoned Heart, but the poem didn’t immediately follow the idea. While at the Altar after service the Lord gave me the title Altar of My Heart. As I was laid bare before the Lord opening my heart and soul for His cleansing light to reveal and remove any sin that stains me. The idea of Servant’s Heart has been in my mind for a while, but I didn’t realize it was going to be a poem.

While sitting at work the heart pattern became obvious to me. I realized how important it is for our hearts to be transformed. It is where the Lord starts His work in us. It is where the Holy Spirit resides. It is also from where we speak and where we hold our treasures. Many places in the Bible we are told these very things. Our hearts identify who and what we are. Do we have that selfish contrite heart centered on “What’s in it for me?” Do we have a greedy heart that only begs “More for me.” I can’t tell you where your heart lies. But I can tell you that if you allow God to work, then you can have the heart He desires us to have. You can have a servant’s heart that is focused upon the Lord and serving Him fully.

It is the season of giving, that time of year we celebrate the birth of the One who is not only Our Savior, but also our example. If we strive to live a life that is patterned after the Lord Jesus Christ then it won’t be long before our hearts are transformed.

I pray each of you have a blessed Christmas and may the Lord shine upon you always.

Serving the Lord,
Christian
