Being a child of the 80s, of course the first thing that comes to mind is,
"Who you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS!"
But since this blog is currently about Lent, I should focus on God's call. Or when I call out to our Almighty Creator.
Yes, I have heard God call me. I ignored the call.
Wouldn't it be nice if it were as obvious as a phone call? A ringing bell, or some kind of sound that we couldn't miss. Instead, God's voice can be small and quiet.
The call I received was repetitive. Some people hear their call through another's voice. I heard God calling me, and then listened to several people tell me to answer the call. Finally I listened.
Did you know that I can be stubborn?
Of course, so were several (all?) of the Disciples. And Moses, he tried to back out a couple of times.
Warning: I'm about to flash-back to the 80s again.
It's sort of like Arnold saying, "What'chu talking' 'bout Willis?"
What are you sayin' God?
Okay, insert a ridiculous amount of movie quotes, you get the gist.
Me? Are you talkin' to me?
That's it, I'll quit while I'm ahead.
Sometimes we have to stop, focus, and listen to hear God's call. Other times, it's a loud gong. Either way, are you listening?
