Called...Sent...And Everything in Between

Remember The Beatles' song, The Long and Winding Road?, often, the time between being called by God and the actual sending by Him, can be a long and winding road.

If God called you and it hasn't come to fruition yet, then be encouraged. You are in good company. Abraham, Moses, Noah, and Paul waited a long time between "the call" and being "sent."

While waiting, make sure you do the following:
  • get plugged in to a local church
  • get into relationship with your pastor
  • rest your soul in Him; while you wait, He moves
  • serve, make a difference in the lives of people today.
Finally, hold the dream or call with an open hand. It will look different when you get there but the essence will be the same.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3: 5-6
