My Call to God

My Call to God

I’m sifting through some old journals, and I came across an assignment I wrote in English class back in 1998. I’m in awe because I feel as if I somehow saw my future. The feelings expressed in this piece reflect conversations I’ve had with God over the past few weeks.

The assignment posed a simple question:

If you could call God, what would you tell or ask him?

I wrote:

“If I had a chance to call God, I would ask him to forgive me for all of my sins, and rid my soul of all evil. My life, I would put in his hands and tell him that i’m worthy to be saved. For my people, who walk among me, I would ask him to help them to. In his ear I’ll whisper the sweetest hymns, to my knees I would fall, and praise him for I am the child that his eye beholds.”

The teacher responded:

“This is so sweet – I can’t imagine you committing any sins!”

I feel a very strong connection with this passage because in 1998 I had committed a few sins, but none comparable to the sins I would commit in my adult life. I recently had a conversation with God in which I asked [him] to forgive me, and I told [him] why I sinned, and explained why I needed forgiveness – I understood my sin.

I then realized that God had already forgiven me, and was preparing me for [his] purpose because the closer I get to [him] the more I see.

Just wanted to share this.
