Your Dream Job Awaits

29th April

As young adults, we often find ourselves searching and praying for the right job. You may also find yourself searching “available positions in ministry.”

When it comes to working in your church, sometimes you just have to take what you can get. This may sound scary because you may think you know what God has called you to do, but there is not really an opportunity right now for that specific position. Chances are God wants you to wait. He wants to see if you are truly allowing yourself to be a willing vessel. Ministry is NOT about you. It is about serving God and others. You are simply a tool that God has hand-picked, and sometimes that’s a tough pill to swallow; it’s also known as humility.

In Bible college I learned that many times when a student comes to … Read More »



Jonah and Me

9th February

Every time I read the short little book of Jonah, I find myself caught up in the painful reality that I identify with him and his story. While I’ve yet to be swallowed by a whale or lose my mind over a wilting plant, I’ve often found myself struggling to understand the path God has set me on, and unfortunately, I’ve found myself running the opposite direction more times than I care to admit. Why would I run? Why would anyone run from the voice or the direction of a God who spans the ends of the earth? Someone who sees all and knows the end from the beginning? How do we logic through walking away from the call, the direction, the Word?

These are the questions I’ve been asking myself, seeking to understand the logic behind our desire for self—our … Read More »



The Call Continues

4th July

“And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram, and blessed him. And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel.”

With high school graduation excitement in the air, many are indulging in their last “free” summer before beginning a chosen college or career choice into this great mystery of life that lays before them. For some, the ending of this chapter is rather exhilarating. For others, this next phase proves daunting and, in many ways, administers anxiety in our quest for what’s next. Both are merited and true in their own way. In short, this is an exciting time.

Possibly one of the most overlooked areas during this time of filling out applications and scholarships is … Read More »



Obedient to the Call

27th December

One of the greatest feelings in the world is knowing God has placed a calling on your life. Just to think that this omnipresent, omnipotent, great big God would call someone so little and insignificant like me to do a work for him is unfathomable! Growing up, I didn’t think my life would amount to much. But when I got in church at the age of twelve, I distinctly remember this overwhelming feeling that this God who was changing my life was also changing my future. I can safely say ten years later that the feeling I felt has more than since been validated, and I have been called by God.

The calling God has placed on my life was re-confirmed while I was at Gateway College. It happened on a weekend just for women where Dr. David Norris’s book … Read More »



Mary’s Call

Posted by Shenae Huba in Inspirational. 2 comments

20th December

I’ve played the role of Mary, the mother of Jesus, many times in Christmas programs and plays. Every girl wants that role around the holidays because you get to be the star of the show! Mary is usually depicted as a pretty young lady—engaged to a sweet and handsome young man—who gets the honor of mothering the Savior of the world! She gets to stand in the middle of the stage holding a cute little baby doll and smile as shepherds kneel and angels sing. But in real life, her story was a little less glamorous, but it’s still so inspiring. It’s a tale of sacrifice but one to which many young people who feel a call of God on their life can relate.

Answering the call of God entailed a great deal of risk for Mary. During biblical times, there … Read More »
