God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Thanks for visiting,
After I get all of the mutating missionary blogs from the past re-posted here, I will continue writing fresh ones. Enjoy the review...

limping on this lane called life
called vs. driven
A theme I often return to.
A called person doesn't necessarily have it all together, but they are leaning on the One who does.
A driven person thinks they pretty much have everything all figured out and can tell anyone at anytime what they are doing wrong and how they should be doing things.
It is a scary reality to realize that people that consider themselves incredibly holy can actually simply be driven.
It is also a scary reality that I can never determine who is called and who is driven.
I can only check my own heart and bend my knee and cry out to the One and Only God to keep me in His place.
To remain called doesn't mean that I have it all together, it means that mistakes will litter my life, it means that His Grace is sufficient, it means that I am not alone - no matter what it looks like, or feels like, it means He is my defender, it means He will protect my reputation.
And when I have done something that I really believed was the right thing to do...
Well, it means that He loves right where I am. It means that He knows my heart.
And I beg HIM to protect me from the driven and draw me to the called.
