The Call :)

"The Call" by Regina Spektor, featured in "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian". This video features the lyrics and I hope you take the time to listen.

"Just because they can't feel it too doesn't mean you have to forget." :)

Are you being called? What are you going to do about it?

Take a look around. Each one of us has a unique combination of gifts, personality, background, and sphere of influence. Answer your call and the world will be a far richer place than when you first met it. Don't answer your call and the world wouldn't know what it's missing.

Moreover, if we say we follow God, wouldn't we do what He says? At the end of our life, do we want Him to applaud us as "good and faithful servants", or to cast us out as "wicked and lazy"?

But it's not just about avoiding punishment. I only have one life --- wouldn't I want to live it in the best way possible? Well, the One who gave me life is also giving me directions (the call) and ability (the power) to live that life. He knows the way to having life to the full, in this life and the next. There's no other choice for me but to answer the call and follow. :)

Scripture references:
Luke 6:46-49
Matthew 25:14-30
Philippians 2:13
