God changes everything
At the heart of every vocation is answering the call from God. The call today is not that much different from the call that Jonah, or Simon, or Andrew heard. It is a call to “come follow me.” As with any commitment, we usually think we know what it will entail, but time often proves us wrong. The call is made manifest a day at a time; sometimes we impose our wills on God that God would give us a map of clear guidelines and a definite budget along with our “Yes” to Him not wanting to be led to the fullness of life in accordance to His will. Sometimes it’s not about the task but the process of our own transformation. Jesus announces in today’s Gospel that the Kingdom of God is near. God would most certainly bring His plan for us to fruition. Whatever our vocation may be, with humble trust and faith in God he will change everything.
