Another season of American Idol has begun. Simon, Randy, and Paula are crossing the country looking for new talent, the next American Idol. To many of this generation, this show may seem like a new concept in entertainment. In actuality, it is hardly a new idea. In the 1980's there was Star Search, in the 1970's there was the Gong Show, and probably the original of these genre was Ted Mack's Original Amateur Hour. It really has been on ongoing theme - looking for the next great talent!

We are always searching for fame and fortune. But the true timeless search is God's own search of hearts that are available for His work in the world. He is not seeking the most qualified or the most talented. He is seeking those who are available, willing, and dependable. In those lives, He will show Himself to be strong and He will be glorified.

All God wants to know is "Are you available?" He will take care of the rest!

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