Waiting For His Calling?

"Most of us use 'I'm waiting for God to reveal His calling on my life' as a means of avoiding action. Did you hear God calling you to sit in front of the television yesterday? Or to go on your last vacation? Or exercise this morning? Probably not, but you still did it. The point isn't that vacations and exercise are wrong, but that we are quick to rationalize our entertainment and priorities yet are slow to commit to serving God."

  1. Very true! At the end of the day, we are self-centered human beings who need to surrender everything to Him, take up our cross, and follow Him. That is what He has been convicting me of at least in my life.
