God’s Call Doesn’t Wait
"Conversion doesn’t happen according to a schedule."
Occasions like New Year’s, Ash Wednesday, and birthdays seem custom-made for adopting new life goals. It’s neat and tidy to say, “As of January 1, I will no longer lose my temper with my children.” “Beginning Ash Wednesday, I will stop using food to ward off boredom or anesthetize pain.” But how often have you promised yourself to change, only to find that within a few days or weeks you’ve reverted to your old ways?
Conversion doesn’t happen according to a schedule, and God doesn’t call us based on the calendar. He calls us when he has work for us or when we’re tripping on our own weaknesses. In other words, he calls every moment of every day.
