Reflection for Saturday, February 28, 2015

Saturday of the First Week of Lent
DT 26: 16-19
PS 119: 1-2, 4-5, 7-8
MT 5: 43-48

We all have some sort of calling in life. Some days, we have big callings like going out into the world and do something.  Other days, we are called just to be pleasant to those around us and treat them with love. As a student, and for any busy person, it can be difficult to take the time to listen to what God is calling us to do.  Half the time I don’t know what day of the week it is (although that’s kind of normal).  Taking the time to listen to what God wants me to do and then do it can be hard.
Today, take a moment and listen to what God is calling you to do. It only has to be a minute.
Do you feel like God is calling you to do more or change something?
The answer can be “no,” God wants you just where you are right now. Some days, I feel God is calling me just to keep on keeping on.  Other times there is a desire to do more, to reach out to others. That’s one of my callings, but what does God want you to do? 
“Now is a very acceptable time”
-2 COR 6:2B
Today is your day. Answer that calling. If no one else is going to answer that call, then it might as well be you. My goal for today and this Lenten season is to listen to what God wants me to do and do it. God knows where you are and He will not ask you to do the impossible, for you.  Trust God and respond.
