Is God calling you?

Is it obvious when you hear God calling you to do something?

We know when God is calling us to do something because there is a sense of peace in our hearts that He is responding.  The first action one must take each day as a disciple is to listen to God by taking time to pray and be open to silence.  God is always present to us, but we do not always make ourselves present to Him. If we are truly listening, then God’s response will be clear to us!
