God’s Call

God’s call comes to us in many ways
and at many different levels.
However, his call is not so much a voice
as a tug at our hearts, which we feel
at quiet and reflective moments in our lives.
He is calling us to a deeper and more authentic life.
He is calling us into intimacy with himself.
He is calling us into community with others.
And at death he will call us into eternal life.
To accept means to admit our need.
Jesus said, ‘Woe to you who are full now,
for you will go hungry.
But blessed are you who are hungry now,
for you will be filled’.
A sense of something missing in our lives
is not a curse but a blessing.
A spiritual hunger
is God’s way of inviting us to his banquet.
