Funny, but TRUE story from YESTERDAY:
I was driving to my son's rehabilitation treatment and was contemplating the thought that
WE ARE ALL CALLED.
He who created the whole universe and all life and all "things"....
He called ME. He called YOU.
To spread His love and His good news that we are loved, created on purpose with a purpose, are to love Him in return and others...to live in mercy and harmony and love and everything like that....
I AM CALLED?
Now, I know for certain I am called and have no doubt...
we ALL are...
But, I was just contemplating the "greatness" and magnitude of
So, after all this.....
the thought went through my head:
"AM I REALLY CALLED? ME PERSONALLY?"
And, again, it was not a question as I know I am beyond doubt...it was just a contemplating of "WOW" and the responsibility of it and are you answering the call...all that contemplating....
AND IMMEDIATELY I passed a large Baptist Church (the area is Baptist here)....
A huge sign was lit up bright w/ lights during the day (that sort of sign)...
"YOU ARE CALLED!"
(in large letters on a large changeable sign).
THAT WAS IT.
THAT WAS IT.
YOU ARE CALLED!!
I immediately grinned. Widely. Deeply.
God does this a lot with me. I am sure He does it a lot with you, too. You just have to have open eyes.
He sometimes makes me laugh at how he answers my questions or how He lets me know He's there "hearing me" think....
So, I just wanted to pass that along to you.
YOU ARE CALLED.
Not by the President of the largest country or corporation....or anything like that..
You are called by one MUCH more important and powerful...
YOU are called and commissioned!
Are you answering the call??
How will you report back at the next meeting?
Just something to contemplate this wonderful June 22nd of 2010.
After all, all we "have" is the present moment.
The present moment lived with God and for God and in God....and God is love....
