God honors those who are confused about his leading

“To paraphrase Paul,

God often uses the cheesy to confound the sophisticated.

He regularly honors those who are confused about his leading

as if they have nailed it.”


― Mark Galli



I was born to make people feel good

“I think my teacher was wrong:

making cheese wasn’t what I was born to do.

I was born to make people feel good

when everything around them seemed just awful.”

The vocation of every Christian

Copyright 2015 by R.A. Robbins


“The vocation of every Christian is to live as a follower of Jesus today.

In every aspect of life,

in small and large acts,

with family, neighbors and enemies,

we are to seek to live out the grace and truth of Jesus.

This is our vocation, our calling.



― Mark Labberton, Called: The Crisis and Promise of Following Jesus Today

Practice rather than preach

“Practice rather than preach. Make of your life an affirmation, defined by your ideals, not the negation of others. Dare to the level of your capability then go beyond to a higher level.”

Doing what God has called me to do

“People from my first home say I’m brave. They tell me I’m strong. They pat me on the back and say, ‘Way to go. Good job.’ But the truth is, I am not really very brave; I am not really very strong, and I am not doing anything spectacular. I am simply doing what God has called me to do as a person who follows Him. He said to feed His sheep and He said to care for ‘the least of these,’ so that’s what I’m doing, with the help of a lot of people who make it possible and in the company of those who make my life worth living”

When you have a sense of calling…

Copyright 2013 by R.A. Robbins


“When you have a sense of calling, whether it’s to be a musician, soloist, artist, in one of the technical fields, or a plumber, there is something deep and enriching when you realize it isn’t just a casual choice, it’s a divine calling. It’s not limited to vocational Christian service by any means.”

God’s love and presence

“God has given us all different abilities and gifts,

so that through them we can bring God’s love and His presence

into the land where we are called.”

Life is meant to be lived

“Life isn’t meant to be lived perfectly…but merely to be LIVED. Boldly, wildly, beautifully, uncertainly, imperfectly, magically LIVED.”
