©HAVE YOU HEARD THIS STORY?
A talented young man wanted to do great things for God. He could see himself preaching the Good News to large churches, and perhaps even having a world-wide television ministry. He could see himself writing books that would help many grow in their faith. After seminary, he got his doctorate. He started in a small church and quickly moved to larger churches. God gave him a wonderful wife and children. The problem was, he was never fully satisfied, even when he seemed to be enjoying his work. He was restless. One day he received a call to a struggling, but smaller city parish. God seemed to lead, so he went. It was not his plan, but maybe he could build it bigger. After several years, and now with a healthy church, he found himself fulfilled. He even turned down several larger church offers. God had shown him that if you are serving where he wants you to be, you can find a fulfilling fit in vocation and calling.
