    Anyone relating to Richard Stearn’s struggle to submit to God’s new “assignment”?

    Week One:
    Yes I am struggling to be completely open to God’s will for my life. I struggle to understand the call on my life. I know that He’s endowed me, created me with my temperment, my intelligence, my passions, just for His work. I know He know’s what He had in mind — it’s me that struggles to understand His call on my life.

    I hear Carolyn say, “The call is the call. The need is not the call.” Where do needs of those around me stop and the call begin? Or vice versa?

    I must be honest and say that I work at being generous with my time, money, talent, but I don’t really think I’m anywhere near close to where He calls any of us to be. It’s still more about what I believe that I can/will do, that measuring up to His call or will or plan for my existance. I pray to be more opent to His voice.

    Question 4: Bingo Card
    My problem is always, what exactly is it that He’s given me to do? Who is my neighbor. What can I do, where do I do it at? I especially felt RS’s statement on pg. 20, “….Jesus’ followerw were not just to proclaim the good news but to be the good news, here and now. I think the holes are those areas where we’re not being the news, but just talking about the news.

    I have to admit, a Bingo card would be easier most days. I’m sure that’s what the law was thought to be, just the list of what I have to do or not do. Check them off when I’m done. But I know that my Father wants so much more from me than that. Just what can I give him is my question? The answer I know is to relax and let him work through me. Harder than checking off the Bingo care, I’m telling you.
