How do you Find.....your Calling in Life?
By: Dave Cole
What is God's vision for your life,
what is His plan for you?
We had so many wonderful comments come in this
week about our last newsletter. If you would like to
re-read that issue, it's online here:
One of the main questions that folks asked, "How do
we find what our calling in life is?"
First let me say, I'm not going to set myself up
here as an expert in this area, what I am going to
share with you is the few insights I've learned
over the years.
Understand, you are never "just" a plumber, or a
salesperson, or "just" a farmer, or "just" a school teacher.
You are someone special.
You are someone created by a higher power in the universe.
You are someone loved and cherished by that higher power in
But, the only true fulfillment in life will be when you are
doing what that higher power has called you to be.
Your mission, is to find what that calling is on your life
then follow it.
Some are called to be housewives, some coal miners, some
train engineers, some bank presidents, some are called to
be butchers, bakers, or Indian chiefs.
What is important to know is you will never find that true
satisfaction doing "just" what you want to do. There's
something inside of all of us that says I've gotta do what that
calling is on my life.
What are the gifts and talents and abilities that have
been given you in life?
That will help you identify what your specific calling is.
If you hate mathematics and can't understand it, then being
an accountant is most likely not your call. If what you are
doing is drudgery or un-fullfilling, if you just seem to hate
getting up in the morning and facing what you do everyday,
then most likely you are not following your calling in life.
Look into yourself and ask, "What are you good at, what do
you really enjoy doing, what are you fruitful at, what part of
your life do you find the most satisfaction?
What is your passion in life?
If you're not following the gifts that have been given you,
then you're never going to achieve your fullest potential
here on Earth.
If you're following your true passion, and utilizing the
talents and gifts you have been given, then you just
can't seem to wait till the alarm clock goes off in the
morning, you just seem to hate to go to bed and call
it a day.
You're alive. Life is wonderful, it's exciting. There
seems to be a tireless energy flowing that keeps you
on track and keeps you moving towards following those
talents and gifts.
You look at life differently when you're following your
calling. There is a love there that motivates you to
do the best you can, to learn as much as possible
about your chosen field of work.
You have a true passion for what you are doing with
your life. And you can see how your life fits in to the
"big picture" of things.....how what you are doing is
Your life doesn't seem "wasted."
Your life has a meaning and a purpose.
Despite difficulties and adversities, you are optimistic,
looking to what the final goals are, always believing,
always knowing that what you are doing is the"right thing."
It comes from within. You just know it's right.
You are uniquely you!
You are not like any other person.
Don't compare yourself to others. They are unique also,
they are not you and you are not them. You have unique talents,
you have unique gifts.....for you to be anything other than what
you are called in life is a step down
Find out what your calling is then do it with all your heart.
No one is less than anyone else, no one is ever a failure, no
one is a mistake if you're walking in that calling on your life.
You are somebody special. There's no one else just like you.
Can you imagine how much nicer this world would be
if all of us were following that high calling in our lives.
You can do your part.
You're probably not called to be an Albert Einstein or
Thomas Edison or a Michael Jordan, or a Benny Hinn,
or a Dr. Jane Bicks.
For most of us, the calling on our life is much simpler.
But whatever that call is, whatever those talents and gifts
are in your life......whatever your passion is.....follow that
with all your heart and you will be fulfilling that grand
and glorious plan that was written for you in the stars above.
You can find that call.
You can follow it.
Your life can be rewarding and satisfying.
Your life can be wonderful....an adventure.
When you find and follow your call, you look at life as a gift.
