a conversation remembered

Anyone feel like Jeremiah sometimes? Recall his conversation with God this morning:

"The word of the Lord came to me, saying:
'Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations'

"Ah Sovereign lord," I said, "I do not know how to speak; I am only a child"

But the Lord said to me, "Do not say, 'I am only a child.' You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the Lord.

Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, "Now I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down to destroy and overthrow, to built and to plant."

Jeremiah 1:4-10

May this morning we be reminded like Jeremiah, that God has put the words in our mouths. All we have to do, is go where God sends us.

Now, that's good news for a Monday!

Go! Speak! And know that the words are within you.
