So many go through life with no sense of calling. They seem to drift in and out of jobs or careers, never feeling settled. Either they have no idea about calling and what their calling is, or they do, and are afraid to embrace it.
In 2010/2011 I took on a life coach for six months. They challenged me to be more professional, to invest in myself and my gift properly. In 2012 I began regular guest posting and completed the Tribe Writers course.
Occasionally when I’m writing, I have a sense of total oneness with the divine. And even if my life is a mess, I still have complete clarity about my calling. I know I am living in complete harmony with the tune God wrote me to play.
And I know there is so much more to do. More to learn and grow into.I see what God is giving me to share, and feel a sense of purpose. A purpose which to my delight and surprise, has nothing to do with making a living, selfish ambition, being popular, attaining a certain status or achieving any numbers.
If you don’t know your calling, just begin paying attention. Listen to encouraging words of others. What do people keep telling you you’re good at? What do you enjoy doing? What are you doing already? What are your passions?
