God's Calling

It's Sunday night around 8:30 and I'm just now sitting down to think about all that has happened in the last few months. Just last week, our Sunday school teacher was sharing a lesson out of 1st Samuel. Samuel was lying down in the temple and thought he heard Eli calling for him. Over and over again he ran to Eli to ask why he had called for him. Each time, Eli said, " I did not call; go back and lie down." Finally Eli realized that Samuel was hearing the Lord's voice. He said to him, "Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, 'Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.'" The Lord indeed was speaking to Samuel.
Our teacher talked about how the next time we thought someone was calling for us only to find out they hadn't said a word...we would think twice. Oddly enough, this very thing happened to me that same afternoon after church, and again 3 times that week. I laughed when it first happened and I thought Jeremy was calling for me...but then I realized...maybe God is trying to get my attention. I sat quietly...and I am still soaking it in....
I am honored and humbled by the blessing of this website and the work that has gone on to get it up and running. I am in daily prayer about it, and I ask God to guide and direct my path.
I've been singing all of my life, but He's chosen NOW to give me an opportunity to do something I've never done before...and it's definitely a "calling."
What do I do with this responsibility? Nurture it, feed it, grow it, protect it, share it, and most of all... put it and leave it in God's hands...not my own!
If you think someone's calling your name...and they're not...THINK AGAIN...
God's got a lot to say!
