The disciples had other occupations before Jesus called them to be His disciples. Peter was a fisherman and Matthew was a tax collector. Many of us began with one job and ended up doing another.
When I went to my first LWML meeting, the president said, “You’d make a good secretary.” Who knew? God did. I served as secretary, later as LWML District President, and most recently as chairman of the LWML Mission Grant Committee which was a joy. Here I am now, wondering what God has in store for me as I change courses yet again to serve as the new LWML Public Relations Director. What a tremendous opportunity to serve our Lord in an entirely new way and I am excited.
We need to open our eyes, ears and hearts to know where God wants us to go, to be, to serve. Pray and be ready for when God calls you. Find opportunities to serve here!
And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me” (Isaiah 6:8).
