Calling that is Sustained

God is always faithful to bring about what He calls us to do.

This quote from 1 Thessalonians 5.24 is like fuel to my soul.  It has buoyed me through all sorts of issues:  ministry situations, moves, personal problems, an adoption, and on an on.  As we waited through the process of adopting our daughter (a long, long process detailed on our family blog:  here), I held on and held on and held on and held on and held on to this nugget.

Whenever I sense God's calling to something, it comes with challenges.  I wouldn't need Him otherwise.  And whenever those challenges come, I run to this verse and let it sustain me.  Waiting?  Confused?  Frustrated?  Faithful is He who calls you and He will bring it to pass.
