Realization of the Call

17 07 2005

When someone tells you they know the meaning of life, it’s doubtful that they do. If someone tells you they know what your purpose in life is, you might think that they are out of their mind.

I have found a biblical call that when fulfilled, gives a satisfaction that cannot be matched. A few weeks ago, I was working at the farm, and I felt a peace that I can’t really explain. If you would have talked to me at the time and asked me how I was feeling, I would have told you that I felt like I was made to do this. This feeling stems from a decree from the Lord in Genesis 3.

The Lord says to Adam, “By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”

It’s kind of a sad promise. One that guarantees hard work. But I think there is a hidden reward in there as well. And when you realize that you are fulfilling that promise, you find that reward.

I think it’s one of those things that you have to find by yourself, but try this one. Try working the earth and growing something. And see if you don’t realize that it’s what you were called to do.
