Calling



Calling

A calling…. Why do we always start with ‘a calling’?
Do we really believe we have only one?! How limiting.

I’m called to be a daughter of the King of Kings. I’m called to seek after Him and to turn from the world. 2Chronicles tells me if I humble myself before Him and turn from the world He will hear me in Heaven. Oh wow. What a simple ‘call’ to make. It requires only my willingness to participate.

A calling… not a job. Not work. Not one task or many. Something to live for…not to merely exist but to be as much a part of me as I am of ‘it’. What is my calling? Of course, I’m called to be His and to obey His commands. Then what?

What is my calling?
No, what are my callings?

To be rich in love,
To be filled with joy,
To allow the passion He created in me to flow freely under His Almighty hand that others may be loved!
To listen.

Ah, to listen. That is what callings are really about… I can not fulfill a call I do not hear. I can not live callings I do not know exists. Lord, help me see not as the world does, but as you do that I might be able to hear your call above all else.

Upon hearing the Lord God Almighty’s call, let us all know that some days there may be a single call to simply get up and try. Other days there may be many callings to live not with in the Earthly confines but in the parameters God meant for us to live by.

Callings…from the Creator of all things… to fulfill not as the world calls but as He would have me to.

Tired - Competition

That was it. I was tired.
Not the tired where I will sleep well because my rest was well earned. Not the tired where you’re groggy and just need extra sleep. The restless tired. The dangerous tired. The ‘I am done with this!’ tired. Why? I was tired of competing with multiple screens: a TV, an ipad, 2 phones. Tired of competing with every professional and college sport broadcast – with the exception of women’s sports because we don’t get those on our TV. Tired of competing with presidential news and daily “to do” list that have more weight than US (as a couple). Tired of there always being one more chore before that project I want to get to can be started. Tired of the same ol' same.
In the end I was just tired.
Tired of a world where we have to compete for a loved one’s attention. Tired of competing with society’s mandates. Tired of being a slave to fashion and trends. Tired of competing with society’s warp version of pretty. Tired of competing with a supermodel’s body image.
Mostly, I am tired …

Lines in the Sand

We draw these imaginary lines in the sand… Then, the tide comes and we wonder why we must start again… We build our castle of sand and hope it stands… Then, the tide comes and we are displeased we must build again… We make our own plans as we dream on the shore, Then, the sun sets and we wish for more.
We wish for more time to enjoy the day. We wish our lines in the sand would stay. We wish our castles could be bigger and stronger. We wish our plans would happen now and not take any longer.

We rise the next day and do all of this again.
We work to maintain, a new way we never entertain. We start each day as a new beginning. Always wishing for a new ending.
Yet, we continue to draw our lines in the sand. We build our temp…
