Available for God

My little sister and I talk for hours about that word “available.”  Webster says “present or ready for immediate use, accessible, qualified or willing to do something or to assume a responsibility.”  Ouch.  Ready, accessible, qualified and willing to assume a responsibility.  That’s quite a mouthful or list of chores when God is in the loop.  I can always fail to be at least one of those four things at any given moment.  The wonderful thing is that if I am living my own Christianity out loud, all four of those things are present by default.  If my day-to-day life is testament to my salvation and evidence of God’s grace then “available” is the default condition.  By the same measurement, if one of those things are missing there is an issue that needs to be resolved by prayer.  That sounds hard but it strikes me as true.
