Match Day: On Calling

David C

I’m a physician that often bridges very dif­fer­ent worlds. Voca­tion­ally, my foci are in inter­nal med­i­cine and pedi­atrics. Geo­graph­i­cally, I grew up in the sub­urbs but was invited and lived "on the block". Eth­ni­cally, I’m Asian and Amer­i­can. Socially, I’m an intro­vert that enjoys pub­lic speak­ing (mainly as a plat­form for ideals). Polit­i­cally, I lean center-left but have deep Evangelical Chris­t­ian roots. Aca­d­e­m­i­cally, I’ve stud­ied engi­neer­ing, med­i­cine, and health pol­icy. Faith-wise, I am decid­edly Christian.

    If you truly want to hear a story of the cost of following calling, read the story of Aaron and Steph Kelley, missionaries in Tenwek Hospital in Kenya. Pray for their grief, as their two year old daughter just died this morning from complications of a completely unexpected brain tumor. (I have never met them, but know of this story through missionary physician Dr. Joseph Harvey, who spoke at this year’s CMDA retreat.)

    sigh. that is a heartbreaking story you posted (aaroninkenya). so sad, yet He continues to praise God amidst his mourning. that is true worship.

    i liked the verses you picked in your post. i have to learn to be more obedient in following my calling too, esp. in better managing my time. thanks for this reminder.

    “But in many cases, per­haps the most mean­ing­ful ones, it will be a con­di­tion in which we will be led where we do not want to go. And yet we are still urged, still called to hear the voice of Jesus who says, “Fol­low me!””

    yes. this.

    where I do not want to go.

    yet somehow in those places where I would not have chosen to go, even there I find deep wells of life-giving water that sooth my soul and He binds up my brokenness…
