Thought of the Day !!

If you wait until the wind and the weather are just right, you will never plant anything and never harvest anything. 
                                     Ecclesiastes 11:4 (TEV)

Many pastors fight the call to ministry and miss out on many years of fruitful ministry because they don't want to accept what God's calling them to do.  Many people fight the urge to share their faith with somebody because they don't think that they are gifted enough to do so.  Others claim that they're not leaders and are unwilling to be an example for others.  

Could it be that many of us are waiting for all the stars to line up in just the right position and for God to speak to us from a burning bush and mystically change something about us before our very eyes before we will be the people God wants us to be already?  Obviously this is not all of us.  But how often would it take a miracle from God to get you going on something that He's calling you to do?  If we wait too long for that perfect moment or that perfect calling, we just might miss out.  

It takes stepping out in faith for real miracles to happen in this world.  St. Augustine once said that we should pray for miracles, but work for results.  Are we waiting for the perfect moment to arrive?  Or are we working for the results of daily miracles?

In the love of Christ,
