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.”

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.

Today.”

 

― 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.”

When God Calls

 

Copyright 2014 by R.A Robbins

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.

God’s love and presence

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.”
