How Do You Find.....What Your Calling In Life Is
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 your life.
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
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
I believe in you.

I only think of what I must do tomorrow - that I
must dance Swan Lake, that I must dance

Does Your Butt Get In The Road?
You know what is sadder than someone who doesn't
know their calling in life?
It is someone who knows what their calling is, yet is
doing nothing about it.
One of these days.....
I'm going to be a teacher, one of these days....I'm going to start my own business....one of these days.....
They're just sitting around waiting....thinking that it's all
going to come to them in some kind of miraculous moment.
Always putting off, always full of "buts".....but it's not the right time, but it costs too much, but I don't have the time,
but I'm too old,......
Their butt (s) - (pardon the pun) gets in the way of their
I challenge you today to get off your but (s) and get on
You and you alone have the power to create your future.
That power is within you.
It's there, that power is alive, that power is just waiting to help you follow your road to a glorious destiny.
Prosperity Is Always YOUR Choice.

A truck driver was driving along on the freeway. A

him and he gets stuck under the bridge. Cars are
backed up for miles.
Finally, a police car comes up.
The cop gets out of his car and walks around
to the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips and
says, "Got stuck, huh?" The truck driver says, "No,
