What does the Lord Require of me?

Today I have been wrestling with this question as I read my homework for Disciple bible Study. What is God calling me to do and be in this place at this time? This is not an easy question for me to answer, because there are so many thoughts going through me head. There are easy answers: to serve, to do no harm, to seek justice, to love the Lord with all my heart and mind and strength. Yet, if I did deeper, I wonder what specifically is God calling me to do? Who are the people I am called to be connected with this day? I have a hard time finding the time to really sit with the question, so for now I am going to keep asking the question. How about you? How do you answer?

Right now, from me, I think God wants (or requires) patience, kindness, diligence, and strength to keep a steady course. To minister as I can from where I am.

I feel my faith being tested by 2 1/2 years of fruitless searching for another professional position while working at a convenience store.

Another lay speaker and I are using the Micah text as we prepare a March 4th Lenten service.

Thank you for a great blog. Steve Central UMC Grantsburg Wisconsin
