NONNEGOTIABLE

The Lord has called me to write. He didnít mention publishing or contests, but I believe heís using FaithWriters.com, weekly contests to jolt me out of my inactivity. He is very serious when he says my calling is writing. He doesnít want me to do my best, but he does want me to do whatever it takes.

The Lord has a calling or plan for each one of us. Maybe his calling is to garden, change majors, become a volunteer, etc. It behooves us to discover what that is. Someday, as Christians, we will stand before the throne and give an account. Heís going to want to know if we accomplished the calling he placed on our hearts.

Heís not interested in excuses. He doesnít want you to follow the calling of your, best friend. He wants you to hear him for yourself! The calling he has for you isnít optional or open to debate. Heís the omniscient God, and has your welfare on his heart.

Actually itís a blessing to be focused on your calling. It provides peace, purpose, and fulfillment. Itís necessary to persevere. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. (Romans 5:3-4, NIV) Most of us arenít too keen on sufferings, but perseverance, character and hope are surely assets in our lives. Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. (Hebrews 12:1, NIV)

This is a nice, short, but to the points piece. Sometimes it's hard to answer God's calling, but when we do the reward is incredible.

Remember not to mention Faithwriter's challenge in your piece because the editor's choices get selected for an anthology and the reader wouldn't know about the contest.

You've done a great job and I'm glad you listened to God's calling.

When we envision God's calling there is nothing better than to start carrying it out. You have begun. Keep writing!
