This saying has been going through my head so much over the last 6 months and I am reminded of it daily. I am reminded every time I need to put the dog in the kennel. I say, "Lucy, kennel" and she looks at me and begins to move as slowly as possible to the kennel. I again say, "Lucy, kennel" and she continues on in the slowest possible manner. She is in no hurry to obey and I know if I walked away she would turn around and go bark at something again. It isn't really obedience, it is more like discipline prevention.
So, last night I read one of my favorite blogs and I love this blog post I just want you all to read it if you haven't already. I could not say it in such great words.
God is working among His people, He is calling disciples, He is calling us. He is calling us to obey, to follow, to lay down what hinders us and run the race He has set before us. What race is He calling me to today?
I want to obey immediately. I want to follow at once.
Just in case the race God is calling you to is ministering to the orphan, ( I think that includes all of us) here is another great blog post to read.
