"The one who calls you is faithful, and he will also accomplish it."
1 Thessalonians 5:24
This reading yesterday really struck me. It reinforces the message I have been receiving lately that when God calls us to something, God gives us what we need to complete it. When I read it yesterday, I was reminded of my first semester in graduate school in Michigan. I was just a little Montana girl, coming to this huge school, to this renowned program and I was so afraid I couldn't cut it. I expressed my fears to a second semester student who knew the ropes and he reassured me. "They selected you for this program," he said, referring to the faculty. "They'll help you through it." What he said in secular terms hit home spiritually for me. God had called me to the field of blind rehabilitation and this particular program. I had a higher calling then and I feel I have a calling from God now. So, God, who calls us will definitely help us accomplish it, whatever it is! We need to show up with willing hands and an open heart. God will help. This is so reassuring as we continue with the tasks God has given us as well as when we embark on new ones. God is faithful and God will help. Love, heidi
