I'm sitting here at the Leadership Summit, day 2. I've listened to Wess Stafford, CEO of Compassion detail how he received his calling to champion children at the age of 9. I contrast this with myself, who at the age of 49 still wonders what my true calling really is. And the Lord whispers into my heart that my calling is to savour today. To do his work here and now, and to let tomorrow fend for itself. A familiar theme in my life these days, it would seem. I guess I'm rather thick and it takes a lot of reminders for it to sink in. But the truth of these simple words is unavoidable. Thank you Lord.
