Today I am reposting an oldie but goodie from May 21, 2013.
When God Calls Don’t Hang Up
I spent many years wrestling with what it meant to be called by God. What seemed like the obvious step of entering the “professional” ministry did not work for me. I was young, naïve and wanted to change the world. I learned the hard way organized religion isn’t so much about change as protecting what is.
Never in my wildest imagination did I dream my ministry would be encouraging folks to think positive thoughts, connect with the presence of God within and eat their vegetables. But it’s a good fit and I am glad that certain well laid plans of younger days didn’t play out.
When God calls, don’t hang up. Listen carefully with an open mind and be prepared for wherever the road may lead.
