The Call

My phone rings and dings all the time.  Like ALL. The. Time!  It never ends! And every time it rings or dings you can be sure someone needs something.  Don’t get me wrong, I love helping people and the constant stream of action is God’s calling for me in this phase of life (and I truly enjoy it).  It’s just that rarely does my phone ring or ding for something that doesn’t take part of me away.  

Yesterday was different.  I got a call from a collogue just to say hi.  She was having fun at a resale shop, thought of me, stopped and took the time out of her busy day to make the call.  It meant so much, it meant the world.  My heart stopped and smiled.  

That one call, that one small action she took, changed the course of the rest of my day.  God is calling you for a purpose today.  Take the time to stop and say yes to God.  You never know what your small action will do in another person’s life.  Be the cause for change.

Exodus 9:16 – But for this purpose I have raised you up, to show you my power, so that my name may be proclaimed in all the earth.

Psalm 37:5 – Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.

John 17:4 – I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do.

Philippians 2:13 – For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
