I Miss It!

A musician I know had the opportunity to play in a band this past weekend. He hadn't played for about two years, and he jumped right in with passion. His chops might have been a bit rusty, but it didn't show.

Afterwards in a discussion, he conceded that he really enjoyed himself. He said he missed playing, and went on to describe a renewed desire to pursue his music.

I love stories like that. To hear a person describe the joy he or she gets from doing what they were designed to do, exercising the gifts that they have been given, and pursuing a passion that drives their soul.

What about you? Is there something that you are taking a "break" from, something that you have been gifted and "called" to do that you are not doing right now? Are you avoiding expressing what is deep in your heart. Are you missing out on fulfilling what you were created to do?

Thank about it. Do you "miss it"?

For some people discerning the 'call' isn't as simple, is it? For me, i still feel that it could be anything. As for now, it is doing what i am given to do.

Umm... I don't know if i am coming across ok. It is like i am still trying to figure out what my calling is. Two years down the line, even 6 months down the line, i could be doing something totally different from what i am doing now... But i do believe that God uses my experiences of the past for the calling i have now...
