The Question Remains…

Nearly everyday day I am confronted with a question:

Haley, who do you want to be?

This question can be whispered softly by the Holy Spirit or stop me dead in my tracks with its power.  Either way, it is my constant reminder that I am not my own and I must make the decision to live for more than myself.

I felt this question in the pit of my soul yesterday, as I faced the most devastating of hurts.  Some pains can’t adequately be verbalized, only lived and slowly worked through.  So at a place where hurt was its freshest God asked me once again who I wanted to be.  The nature of my answer can vary just as much as His question.  But yesterday I decided that I want to be vulnerable.  I still want to pour my life and love into the broken, the hurting, the desperate and dying.  I still want to open my heart to those around me, but mostly to God.

I want to be open to being used by God.

I have recently realized that an open heart will, inevitably, be wounded.  But we should not let this stop us.  For it is here, with an open heart, that we truly learn to live.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20–…You are not your own;  you were bought at a price…

therefore, with a little faith to step forward and a lot of grace I will continue to do His will.
