I want to be characterized as a woman who carries out the calling to go.
God doesn't tell us, sit down, ponder it, and then if it fits with your schedule go.
He says GO.
No explanation.
No doubts.
No questions.
No plans.

He promises his Holy Spirit, his guiding and blessing. He does not say it will be easy or the way will be paved, but he does say that it will be an adventure. One where we trust God and have faith even when we seem to be lost and in the dark.

So what is the calling. GO... but where?
To quote my pastor, I think as human beings it all boils down to this small statement.

We are called to make the invisible God visible.

We are called to shine his light, in even the darkest parts. We are called to be his hands and feet. He has made us more than conquerors. So what is holding us back?

We would seriously put our own personal comfort before letting the king of the universe use us. We are automatically made WINNERS through Christ. WE CAN'T FAIL. But yet, we are scared to leave our comfort zones to let God use us. If we can't fail, why are we scared?

You can choose to step into the greatest adventure and love story ever told. You can chose to be the main character. Or you can enjoy the comfort of where you are at, and miss out. Not only in this life but for eternity.
