Alice B. Garrigus was asked to write the story of her life and in the introduction, she wrote this:
“From time to time different ones have requested that my life story be written. At last I consented, with this one purpose: that the guiding hand of a loving God might be seen in its pages, and that some other soul might launch out into the deep and prove how sweet ‘is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God’”.
I have written before that this woman has inspired me. Wouldn’t it be neat to think that when this woman was writing her story that God had me in mind… to challenge me to do what He has called me to do?
Answering the call of God on your life isn’t always easy… it can be downright scary. When I think about my weaknesses… when I think about what other people might think of me, I can understand why some people might decide to run. They run just like Jonah ran.
The fact is that if God has called you to do something, He is going to help you do it! That’s a big relief! God will give you the grace and strength to carry out His call on your life.
I want to end this post by saying that I want to fulfill the call of God on my life… I want to encourage you to do the same! Don’t run!
God bless you today!
