Rather than squeezing God between appointments, only really having enough time to have a one way conversation with us doing all the speaking to God, we need to take the time to listen, to bear through the difficult silence, to quiet the noise in our own heads, so that we can hear that we all are called. Our children are called to be children, to be brothers and sisters, to be grandchildren, nieces and nephews. We are called in our daily work, we are called to be family members, to be students, to be neighbors, partners or spouses. We are called to be friends, to be colleagues, to be citizens of God’s kingdom. We are called to be the embodiment of God’s Spiritual fruits.
Prayer: God, you call us out of our barrenness into places of abundance. Help me today to embody your call so that I can be focused on your presence and a faithful witness to your abundant love in my life. Amen.
