Joined (Called?)

Thank God it’s Five Minute Friday!
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking (seriously)
2. Link back
here and invite others to join in.
3. Visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.
OK, are you ready? Come on and join the fun!

Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 (NKJV)

How did I become a part of the community to which I belong? Did I join? Was I called? Does it matter?

As a child, I worshipped in the church of my family. I was a PK. Nobody asked me whether I wanted to…nobody cared. I joined the family in worship, I participated in praise. It is what we did.

As an adult, I relied upon the faith I’d been taught. I did what I knew. It felt natural. At some point, as an adult, I joined a church, committed to a fellowship, participated in community. Did I join? Was I called? Does it matter?

For the last two years, I have blogged, and at some point I joined the fellowship known as Five Minute Fridays. It is a point of reference for many writers I have met, people who have poured into my soul and spoken over my life and my words. Did I join? Was I called? Does it matter?

What matters is now, that I am, that we are here. Before any of us knew our names, He called us to Him. Were we drawn by His voice? Led by family or friends? Tugged by obligation or compelled by our souls and our hearts?

How we arrived matters not. What matters now is that we are here. What will we do in this place?

We are Here, and God is good.
On Fridays, I pray and play with LisaJo and Laura
