Being a wordsmith, I’ve always loved a good quote. Language can work wonders in a sound bite. Well, try this one on for size:
God doesn’t call the qualifed.
He qualifies the called.
I heard this in church yesterday. People applauded. I saw the guy in front of me write it down.
Whether or not you believe in God, it is such a statement about courage and its role in embracing our destiny. We almost never feel prepared enough, smart enough, schooled enough for the next step. Yet we feel the pull. How wonderful is the concept of having faith that if you follow your calling the “qualified” part will come? Isn’t it just a big, fat relief?
Keep forging your path.
