This caught my eye to share from the WELCA devotion, "Daily Grace" (see Saying Yes):
Have you experienced what it means to listen to God’s call? Our discernment affects not only our own lives and families but also our congregations and our communities. God calls us continually, and our partnership with God can give us the focus we desire and the direction we need.
What are your hopes for your own life, and how have you discerned what your God-given gifts are? Do you believe you have a calling? Are you living out that “yes” to God? Has there been a time when you helped someone else in their discernment? Adapted from “Saying yes,” an offering devotion that appeared in the May 2011 issue of InterchangeBlessings.
