A Higher Calling 

In our culture today, so many people…SO many people are longing for a greater purpose-for a higher calling… And I think especially us as Christians. We get stuck in this rut where we feel like this life is meaningless. This day-to-day, go-go-go life, whether it’s studies or dishes for the 18th time it can sometimes (or most of the time, if we’re being honest) feel pointless, and we long for something greater.  We ask the Lord for something larger. I know I’ve cried out with the same prayer over, and over, and over… And over!… The classic ‘use me for greater things. Show me the higher callings and the greater plans you have for me. I’m ready now, Lord. C’mon…!!’ But you know what I’ve had to learn…? These things are NOT on our time but on God’s.  He has been teaching me through little things here and there. He has been whispering to me… Things like: ‘Savannah, wait on me. Be patient. I’m a good, good Father, and everything I have for you is perfectly mapped out… Including its timing. Just trust ME! I am enough for you. You’re asking for greater things… But have you been faithful with little? Are you ready for much? When you’re standing at that sink…when you’re struggling through that last algebra lesson, longing for something greater…are you doing your work to the best of your abilities, and unto ME?!’ 

He knows what’s best for each one of us, and He tells us over and over again, that He knows the plans he has for us! But we have to learn to wait. Our job is to wait on HIS timing…to do all the task…even the little ones as unto Him. These seemingly ‘little’ things are the things He has called you and me to do…so right now, in this place of longing for more, for greater things, we need to get some perspective. This is what He has given us right now, and He expects us to do them diligently and as if they matter… Because they do. The little things matter, and guess what… They DO lead to bigger, and greater things!
So to the weary high schooler. To the worn out Mama. To the businessman searching for a greater purpose: Wait. On. The. Lord. Commite all your ways to Him, and serve Him to the best of your abilities where you are right now-and I can promise you-greater things will follow. He will make your paths straight, but only if you put your trust fully in Him, and wait on His timing. 🙂
