I feel a calling to be so detached from the world and physical needs that it is not easy. I want to eat and enjoy simple things in life like most people, and sleep regular hours, but I often feel the Lord wants me to be completely contrary to what most people do with all the conditionings of our world and in our lives. To lean on Him completely as the disciples did, not taking any “Scrip not purse” with them as they traversed the regions proclaiming the Word of God and performing healings and other miracles. I often feel to keep going from the day on into the night, walking and praying and singing, keeping my self in sweet communion with Him. He’ll sometimes send a small sparrow or finch to land very close to me, while I’m resting, to remind me He is still looking after me. I do not have any calling to do any particular evangelization or healing unless asked. Yet this “letting go” and trusting God and the Universe for all my needs is challenging. Thank you for praying for me to have the strength, commitment, clarity and most of all, courage, agape love and wisdom to discern the Lord’s calling and follow it exactly as He asks. Like I heard in one sermon, “we obey Him because we love Him”. Blessings.
