The more I understand God called me for such...
a time as this, the more my life makes sense. How many times has someone called you and you didn't answer because you didn't feel like it? When their name popped up on the call I.D, you immediately said "they don't want anything. I'll call them back later."
Too often we miss the call because we don't feel like answering. Even when God is blowing up our phone, we turn a blind eye and act as if the phone is on silent. Then we have the audacity to try to convince Him, "Dang Lord, I didn't see I missed your call". In my Grandmothers words " God got the record".
Our calling is our Life's Assignment. It's our duty. It's our work. It's the PURPOSE of our existence. It's His reason for our creation. We don't have a right not to answer His call (In my girl Gloria's voice). Whatever and whenever that call comes, it's our obligation to treat Him better than the man in our lives that gives us butterflies. Oh yeah, we answer that call.
The message below really spoke to me. I hope it does the same for you. Please take the time to listen to the video below.
