What is life but God’s daring invitation to a remarkable journey? And what is human nature but a staunchly inbred tendency toward self-preservation? And because of the rigidly paradoxical nature of these things, the road of life is seldom trod beyond a few scant steps.
We live our days in the microscopic, but something within us calls us to dream in the cosmic – every one of us. And within us exists those two worlds: the world as it is and the world as we think it ought to be.
…we have a high calling etched into our bones and written on our hearts. God wants to engage us…and deliver us into a life He has dreamed for us… We were made to explore.
All professions have some element of theater to them.
Believing in your potential and calling upon your courage to change will fuel your professional growth and help you accomplish goals.
No one can fulfill the calling to extend the reign of love alone
Raising your children to love and serve Jesus is fulfilling one of God’s highest callings upon your life.
What good is a path that doesn’t carry us to the edge of our capacity and then beyond that place? A true calling involves a great exposure before it can become a genuine refuge.
Whether we want to admit it or not, we are dependent on other pray-ers. In Matthew 9:38 Jesus said, “Pray ye, therefore, the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His harvest.” Am I a laborer because someone, some time, some place, obeyed Jesus’ command and prayed that God would send forth a laborer to the field in which I’m working? This is a humbling thought, and removes all the ego and pride about my ministry, my calling. Because somebody prayed, did I CHANGE into God’s laborer?
If I have found my journey to be a maddening tangle of wandering ‘rabbit-trails,’ a labyrinth of incessantly circular passages to nowhere and back, and a plethora of assorted ‘dead-ends’ fraudulently disguised as paths of great promise, it can only be because I have mindlessly exchanged God’s compass for mine. Therefore, it would appear that another exchange might be in order.
