Then the Lord called, “Samuel! Samuel!” and he said, “Here I am!” 1 Samuel 3:4
During a conversation with my dad about his service in World War II, he shared that young men and women got on trains to go to basic training with no idea of what they would be doing or where they would end up. Dad told me that everyone just went where there was a need.
As disciples of Christ, we are also to go where we are needed. Filled with the Spirit, we can be open to the call to serve. We can respond to God’s call, not knowing exactly where we go or what we will be doing, but assured that God is with us each moment.
Listen, God is calling.
Prayer: Gracious God, help us to hear and follow your call. Amen.
