Galatians 1:15 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
But when God, who from my mother's womb set me apart and called me by His grace....

As you grow older you will hear people ask you "What do you think God has called you to do?" Often people assume that what you are good at is how you will serve God. Oswald reminds us today that God's calling depends on Him, not us. We often find it easy to serve God with what comes naturally and not what puts us out of our comfort zone. Bottom line is make sure you are starting early; to first go to God with everything in your life and then wait till He responds to your petition!!!! Take a look back over your journals so far, is there something you prayed about and still haven't heard the  answer to? If so, rewrite the prayer request and also write, to God, about how you feel about not having an answer yet. Take about 5 minutes and practice being quiet and listening for God's voice. Record what God says to you.
