And never forget, as you make your way along the path to the summit, that calling is from a Person. It isn’t essentially about doing. It is at heart about knowing—about knowing the magnificent and kind Person in whom “we live and move and have our being.” He is full of surprises; there is no way we can predict with certainty what course our lives will take. But he is also full of wisdom and love. The One who orders our days and knows our names gave his life for us. He saw his whole “career” crash in ruins—he lost his friends, his clout, his clothes, and, above all, his Father—in order to open his home and himself safely to us. And so, no matter what unfolds, we have nothing to fear, and we have a future of joy-filled discovery that defies imagination.
