Living in availability is freedom. By making ourselves available, we are not going to be weighed down by trivial matters. We are not going to be controlled by things or other people. We are free to be the persons who God has called us to be. The world is changed by those who are available to respond when the world cries and God calls.

If I was going to share a piece of advice to graduating seniors, high school or college, it would be to stay open. I would tell students to be open to the move of God’s Spirit. Not power, not prestige, not knowledge, not money but availability is what God is looking for. God is looking for people to put their heart on the table so he can put it on the map. God is longing to make a difference in the world one life at a time and God’s plan includes us.

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” Isaiah 6:8
