Called by God

These faces are my calling, what's yours?

"Your career is something you do to get paid, your calling is how you were made." our pastor said this last Sunday. He then referred us to Romans 1:1, "Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus , called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God."

I was listening but I wasn't really thinking hard on it until Scott elbowed me and said, "He talking about you, honey". I sat and thought about that for awhile. "Am I called? What am I called to?" Instantly, the answer came to me. I am called to be my kids Mom and their teacher. It may not be others calling but it is mine. I think that's what Scott was me elbowing for ( I could just ask him but ....). I think I feel so passionate about what I do and so confident that this is what I am to do that it's a good indication of calling.

All of my devotions this week have been on calling and I started each day with the thought that God has called me to being a Mom and home schooler. It's made me think of what I do in a different way, if God has called me to this then I better work at it with all of my heart. Col 3:23 says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." It also gives me an extra incentive to be an excellent Mom and home schooler if I am working for the Lord. It gives me confidence and a real sense of purpose to be called and to be doing the will of God.

I hope that you know what you are called to do and that it gives you confidence.
