Be Available

I was reading From the Pastor's Heart (Charles Stanley) in my monthly newsletter from InTouch today & this is glued in my mind:

In the segment near the end of the letter, there's a piece (tried to find the link and couldn't, sorry folks; if you're interested in the rest, comment below and I'll be glad to email it to you) regarding How can I pray so powerfully? What does this kind of prayer require?

#5 in the list states: 

Be available for whatever the Lord calls you to do. You may not understand His instructions to you, and you may even fear the consequences of obeying Him. Do it anyway. God knows the exact path necessary for you to succeed--and He won't let you down. You are always safest when you are in the center of His will and plan.

Then, after the Fall Festival at Church, I always "stalk" (so to speak) Joyce Meyer on Facebook because she's fabulous! Here's what I stumbled upon:

Declare war on selfishness today and be determined to reach out to others in their pain and need. The one thing we must never do is nothing! -Joyce Meyer

This may not make sense or be connected in any way for you, but it's a connection for me. For that, I am grateful. I Praise Him!
