Athletic activities require a certain discipline and some might even say a calling. The dispute over time is what kind of callings Christians have. People in the past fought over having a position in the church that only calling a Christian could have. This means being completely devoted to studying and living the word of God and the duties that come along with that. This belief has slowly evolved into different beliefs such as a calling that involves active service in the world. By being in the world and acting as a Christian, a person satisfies their calling by bring glory to God in everyday life. A calling can even be stretched beyond that into a person's everyday activities and hobbies. A person should not act differently based on where they are or what they are doing. A Christian should always perform actions that will reflect well on the Creator. When an individual falls short, how he or she reacts is what will be judged in the sight of God. People are not perfect, only trying to follow in the steps of Jesus. By doing this, people do not bring attention to themselves but to God. For people are going to sin but that is the only way God can forgive them.
Starting college, a lot of questions came to mind about what I was planning to do with my life. Along with these questions came worries such as what I should be doing to prepare, what I was supposed to know already, and what to do if I didn't like the situation I'm in. When I am planning for my life very few times do I stop and wonder if I am doing what I want or what God is calling me to do. As a Christian I want to walk the path that God has for me to, but I still have that pride in me that is screaming to just do what I want. I think that's one of the problems that Christians are having. I want to determine what happens in my life compared to what God calling may be. As Christians, I think that God needs to be applied to every aspect of our life. I get impatient with how God wants me to wait and decide only when I know for sure what he wants. But ultimately that is how God works. In the bible he references that trust and patience are some of the fundamental pieces of a relationship. I know that I can't interrupt what God wants but all He asks is that I try. When I can completely trust God, I won't have to worry about doing the right thing, I will know that He is guiding me step by step.
