Your Calling

Finding the Passion God Planned for Your Life

Do you know that God has predestined you for something in this life?  When He formed you, He planned your purpose in this world!  Do you know what your purpose is?  Do you pursue it with a passion?

Last weekend, our pastor's wife relayed her experiences during a recent missions trip to Israel.  One thing that impressed her was the zeal and passion the Israelis have for their calling by God.  They live for that thing, that purpose that they know was placed on them for a reason.  She said it's in them; it's their life, what they live for everyday.  I want that same passion in my calling!  I believe that calling is to empower and encourage women in their walk with the Lord as mothers, wives, and daughters of the One True King.  

I fought for several years before I understood what my calling is.  If you're in that phase of your life, don't be discouraged.  Ask the Lord to reveal that to you today.  Here's are three steps to get your started:

  • Pray, and ask God to bring back to your memory those dreams from your youth.  They were given to you to practice and rehearse so that when the time was right you would be prepared to step into that purpose.
  • Think about what you like to do as a hobby, for fun, etc.  Likely those things are related to your calling!
  • If you still aren't sure, but have an idea, start moving in that direction.  Think your calling is writing?  Start writing!  Is your calling intercessor?  Begin by praying!  The Lord will show you which direction you should go, really, He will!
