“It is not hard for the Lord to turn night into day. He that sends the clouds can as easily clear the skies. Let us be of good cheer. It is better farther on. Let us sing Hallelujah by anticipation.” -C.H. Spurgeon
There are no shortcuts to friendship… with God or with others. “No shortcut exists. God has not bowed to our nervous haste nor embraced the methods of our machine age. It is well that we accept the hard truth now: The man who would know God must give time to Him. He must count no time wasted which is spent in the cultivation of His acquaintance.
When you and I come to the end of our earthly journey or the the end of a season in our lives, what will we leave undone? There is no way we can “do it all,” but there is a way to know “what to do” and “when to do it.”
“I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” -Ephesians 4:1-3

These callings or invitations are from whom?

For the world to enter in.
LORD, send rain from Heaven
Into the garden of my heart
By gentle shower or heavy flood,
Water every dry, scorched part.
