Catholics, Christians in Amarillo may be sitting at their desk, in their home, and on the road today wondering: what is God is calling me to do?
God calls each of us to do His great work. Are we listening? Do we bury our heads in the sand and say I don’t hear you. Do we go about our day telling Him we are going to do it our way? Do we say it is hard thus we’re not going to put forth the effort?
When we bury our heads in the sand we are hiding the talents and gifts God has given to us; graced us with, to do His great work.
When we tell Him we are going to do it our way we are saying to Him, His way isn’t good enough or we can do it better.
When we complain it is hard, we are saying we aren’t willing to walk the fire for Him. Are we saying we deserve better than what was doled out to Jesus?
What if God is calling you to drop whatever you’re doing right now to go help someone in another country, or another state? Are we afraid to use our talents for this calling because we don’t want to fly? After all who wants to fly right now with all the security scares and concerns?
Are we going to not answer His call because we are convinced the whole situation will fall apart since we aren’t in charge? How do the farmers in Amarillo and surrounding areas feel: helpless? Not in control with the lack of rain for their crops?
Are we going to sit in our homes with our nice little routine of wake- up…prayer…work…eat…prayer…work…eat…prayer…go to bed… then start it all over again the next day.
Does our nice little routine get in the way of DOING for God?
Do we think the only way to God is by have everything compartmentalized, neat, and serene? Do we think this is the only way to reach grace with God? Why? And how?
Why do we think we deserve to have life any easier than Christ? He is our master and if He had to die on a cross to get His message out there shouldn’t we be willing to do the same? And how do we think we can do Gods work if we constantly hide our heads in the sand, stay in our safe bubble and not get our hands dirty.
God’s calling for us must be challenging. The challenges of making sure our prayer life, keeping God in the driver seat, and still going a million-miles-a-minute takes balance…takes grace…takes God.
Only with Him is all this possible. We need to stop hiding from our calling and our talents. We need to stop thinking we can do this on our own. We need to stop trying to take the easy way out.
We need to stop, hear His voice, pick up our cross and GO!
