On the ‘Christians in the Military’ thread, I said:
Durnovarianus replied, in part:
It seemed to call for a new thread. So, to get the ball rolling:
If you believe you’ve experienced some sort of calling from God at one time or another in your life, what sorts of things has God called you to (or from, for that matter)? How did you know it was a call? What did it feel like? What do you mean when you say you felt God was calling you? Has this happened just once in your life? Very occasionally? All the time? What has been the effect on your life of heeding such calls? Of disregarding them? Has it ever happened that you believed that God was calling you in a particular direction, but you are less than sure in retrospect?
That ought to be enough questions to start it off. While I expect that the responses will be primarily from Christians, I’m certainly open to the idea that God can call people of other faiths, and if so, I’d be interested to hear what your experiences have been and to see what our experiences share.
