Here I Am; You Called Me!

“Here I am. You called me!” (1 Samuel 3:4 ERV) Oh how this sounds like me when I was first learning what God’s voice sounds like. When I first read and heard this reading I remember thinking that it was quite funny; how could Samuel not tell that this was not Eli speaking to him? I found it hilarious that each time he was awaken because Samuel thought he heard Eli calling to him, Eli calmly (until probably the last time) told him that it was not Eli calling him and to go back to bed. He probably thought that Samuel was quite stupid or silly.

I often find myself doing similarly. Often times I think I hear Mom or Steven calling me and I look about and don’t see them or I come running in the room where they are and asking, “Yes? What did you want?” and they promptly tell me, “I didn’t say anything” or “I didn’t call you.” and I feel embarrassed to say the least.

Still, I can’t help thinking that this is such a wonderful story and what I constantly say to God now; “Here I am; You called me!” and I eagerly await what it is that God wants of me in that particular instance.

I hope to hear what He wants of me now as I take many new steps and look for ways to improve my current situations in various areas of my life. “Speak, LORD. I am Your servant, and I am listening.” (1 Samuel 3:9 ERV)

Love and prayers!


About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at, and am single.
