Last Sunday our Sunday School class was talking about having a calling. The comment was made that the need is the call. This simple statement has been on my mind ever since. It also reminded me of a quote that I used to have on the refrigerator by Frederick Buechner. I looked it up to make sure I had the wording correct.
"The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.
~Frederick Buechner ~
Another quote that I find meaningful in thinking about my calling or about what God wants me to do is this -
Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.
~ Mother Teresa ~
So often finding our calling can be achieved simply being the person God made you to be in place you find yourself right now.
Another way to put it could be - bloom where you are planted.
