Just for Me

It’s strange how things can come into our minds that we haven’t thought about for decades. This can happen with choruses we used to sing in Sunday School as youngsters and teenagers. Sometimes today the words might sound a little dated but the messages were simple and contained truths that have not changed.

The following choruses by Elsie D, Yate has been continuously playing in my mind recently,

‘There’s a work for Jesus ready at your hand,

T’is a work the Master just for you has planned,

Haste to do His bidding, yield Him service true,

There’s a work for Jesus none but you can do.’

Do you used to sing this? I fervently believed this when I was a teenager and I still do today. It is no good me hankering after jobs that God doesn’t want me to do. I might want to sing or play in the worship band. God ruled that out by my poor quality of singing and flutist fingers that have stiffened with age. At one time I wanted to be a missionary, but my poor health and complete inability to learn foreign languages made that a no-go.

My sphere of service these days is through my writing and other things behind the scenes. With the possibility of my having an inflated ego, that’s just where God wants me to be. I pray that I will be ‘a round peg in a round hole.’
