God's Calling

I remember when Becky first began volunteering at our Family Retreats. 

Hi I'm Joni Eareckson Tada and I remember when Becky first began volunteering at our Family Retreats. She had just graduated college and felt certain God had called her to serve with us that summer – but even with her college degree, she felt ill-equipped for the severe disabilities she observed in some of the children. That first day she felt unskilled, and afraid. I said to her, "Becky, are you certain God called you here?" "Yes," she replied, and I could tell she meant it. "Then I have a verse for you," I told her. First Thessalonians 5:24 says, "Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass." In other words, "Becky, God's calling is your enabling. If he called you to volunteer, he will enable you… So get out there and do your best." And you know what? She did. And she did a great job. You can, too. Be a volunteer at one of our Family Retreats at joniandfriends.org.
