I'm learning that the more we focus on one very specific option being our calling in life, the more difficult it will be to find that option. What if we began to think of calling as something we can take steps towards? A friend, calling out, enticing you to come towards them.
Throughout the story all that we see is a continual emergence of God within the worst moments of our lives. War, famine, slavery, idolatry, abandonment, abuse, greed, gluttony, and the presidential campaign of 2016...believe it or not, God is still with us.
I'm beginning to understand that God doesn't love me despite who I am,
he loves me because of who I am!
