Let Him Use You Wherever You Are

“There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.” 1 Corinthians 12:5 (NIV)

God formed us and entrusted us with talents and gifts we can use to bless others and to bring glory to His name. We should, as often as possible, utilize those gifts as well as hone them in order to be able to do what we do well and efficiently.

I believe that whatever we do, we should do it as unto the Lord, because it is He who enables us to do it. Even when we deal with opposition such as envy and spite from people who are supposed to be on our team, we should look to God for grace and continue to honor Him with our gifts and talents, because it is His approval we seek, and not man’s.

I pray daily that God will place me where He wants me to be and use me according to what He has for me to do. One day, I was at Walmart in Lynchburg, VA to get some shampoo, and right there in the shampoo aisle I overheard a young men speaking with one of his friends about his need to make a decision on where to attend medical school. He needed to take several things into consideration, including cost to attend school and distance between his school and his home.

I happened to recognize that young man from interview day at LU College of Osteopathic Medicine (LUCOM), where I used to work. I asked if I could help him sort through his thoughts and make a decision that was best for him. We conversed for about one hour right there in the shampoo aisle, and then I prayed with him. That young man ended up choosing LUCOM as his school and each time he saw me after that day, he would smile and wave.

I did not do anything out of the ordinary to help that young man; I simply made myself available to speak with him, and practiced some good listening skills to help him weigh the pros and cons of both schools and make his decision wisely.

“Father, thank You for giving us ways to help others.”

For His Glory
