The Life The Lord Assigned

Today's NT reading was the spiritual 2' x4' someone suggested I might need whupped up against my head:

''However that may be, let each of you lead the life that the Lord has assigned, to which God called you.  This is my rule in all the churches.  Was anyone at the time of his call already circumcised?  Let him not seek to remove the marks of circumcision. Was anyone at the time of his call uncircumcised?  Let him not seek circumcision.  Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing; but obeying the commandments of God is everything.  Let each of you remain in the condition in which you were called.  Were you a slave when called?  Do not be concerned about it.  Even if you can gain your freedom, make use of your present condition now more than ever.  For whoever was called in the Lord as a slave is a freed person belonging to the Lord, just as whoever was free when called is a slave of Christ.  You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of human masters.  In whatever condition you were called, brothers and sisters, there remain with God." -- 1 Corinthians 7:17-24

Okay, then.  That's a week of my life I'll never get back.  The wilderness wandering is over.  It's time to move on.  That's not the first time that's ever happened.  And it certainly won't be the last time either.  But it's time to get going.  I will, with God's help.
