Clarity in your calling

Clarity in your calling

I love to return or simply make a few calls on my way home from work (I’m sure I’m not alone in doing this). It’s a good time to have a semi-undistracted conversation for a few minutes. 

Recently, I’ve been taking a different way home that includes lots of trees, which often equals poor connection and soon a dropped call. One day I could hear one of my dear friends saying “Where in the world are you? You’re breaking up.” 

While somewhat humorous because I knew that was going to happen, (while hoping it wouldn’t), this also caused me to reflect on: 
My connection with God, The location (or position) of my heart in seeking Him diligently everyday. 

“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in Him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 ESV 

Connection - Fight to spend time with Jesus. Stay connected to His goodness and righteousness through fervent prayer and The Living Word of God. We need Him. 

Location - Ask the Holy Spirit to position your heart to desire, discern, and understand The Word of God and the calling placed over your life. 

Apart from the Savior, we can accomplish nothing. 
With the Savior, we can and WILL accomplish much.
Be excited and stay connected!

Lord, we all find ourselves facing obstacles and challenges today. We’re all trying to figure things out and find ourselves failing and falling often. Help us to see the rocks before us today as opportunities. May we confront them today with confidence as we experience your grace and goodness in them. Help us to extend grace to those around us, too, knowing that everyone is facing their own “climb” today. Thank you for reminding us that we’re surrounded by fellow rock climbers and are not al...
