"A Feeling" Vs. A Calling




More than a feeling.

Let's examine this:   A feeling is something that comes and goes; it's temporal.  If you have a feeling that won't go away about something related to a talent,a dream or desire...look into it.  That desire is not just a feeling, it's often like God calling your name; that's a calling.  Look at the life of Samuel when he was called.

"The Lord called Samuel. Samuel answered, “Here I am.” And he ran to Eli [the priest] and said, “Here I am; you called me." But Eli said, “I did not call; go back and lie down.” So he went and lay down. Again the Lord called, “Samuel!” And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.” “My son,” Eli said, “I did not call; go back and lie down.” Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord: The word of the Lord had not yet been revealed to him. A third time the Lord called, “Samuel!” And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me." Then Eli realized that the Lord was calling the boy." (1 Samuel 3:4-8)

Pray about that joyous "feeling" deep in your heart that fills you with life every time you exercise it.  Know that something like this is more than just a feeling.  This is a passion! This is a calling!  Read the rest of 1 Samuel.  See how God is calling you as well.  :)

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
