Answering the call when something is at stake

Don Osmond

Have you ever gotten the "call"? You know what I'm talking about. The phone rings with an unknown number, but curiosity gets the best of you and you answer it.

The voice on the other end says, "Hello, this is President Harold from the stake."

That's about the time your heart sinks to the bottom of your gut. Butterflies don't even begin to compare to the anxiety that engulfs your body. Autopilot kicks in, and you systematically go through every potential question he could ask.

I have always found when given a calling. I do a couple things.
1-go in with a prayer, I have never been told on the phone what the calling would be and like you have held a calling and got released and received another calling.
2-know that the calling I have been given was inspired.
3- any calling I have ever received I have always felt I learned more from that calling then I gave.
