If God had approached you and asked if you were ready, what would be your heartfelt honest answer?
This may be to do his mission, such as evangelize, plant a church, be in the health care for others, become a minister, to make a call, or death. You get the picture of the multiple issues. Now search your heart for the honest answer.
In all scenarios, I would seek to do His will...not mine.
Absolutely. I am ready to do whatever God calls upon me to do. I live for His will, not my own.
Brave people aren't the ones who do things they're not afraid to me. Brave people are those who have the courage to do what's asked of them or needed of them even though they don't think they're good enough, don't know how, or are scared.
When I went on my first mission trip in 2008, I went to Kenya and I remember saying, "God, I'm willing to serve, but please don't make me serve with children." And you know what? During our week there, we spent time with more than 300 children hosting a Vacation Bible Study for them. It worked out just fine, as God knew it would. Was it what I would have chosen for myself? No. But I did what God asked me to do.

Unfortunately I would not be ready because of my children. I would not like to leave their care up to anyone but a loving parent and just thinking about where they would go, be, live, prosper is to much for me to bare right now.
I would say that I am ready. I am ready to do whatever God wants me to do.
Today, this minute, I think he wants me to be the best person I can be: honest, kind, faith-filled, etc.
About five or six months ago I suddenly developed severe chest pains and since I have heart problems, I thought I was having a heart attack and that my time had come. I had always thought, prior to that, that I would be ready to go whenever the good Lord came for me, so it was a true eye opener when I found myself thinking that I wasn't prepared to go just yet. I wasn't centered, I felt distracted from spiritual things and this disturbed me. Over the next several months I received some help in understanding that there is no such thing as unfinished business if death comes suddenly and you are in the middle of something unrelated to dying, because our journey is also our destination. This means that whatever we are doing, the time is always right. So now that I have gained this new understanding I think I'm better prepared to let go ond move on. So yes, with God's help now I'm ready.
