What’s your calling?
I spent years pondering that very question. I spent endless hours asking God to show me. I knew within my heart that there was something God had in mind specifically for me, but I just could never quite put my finger on it.
Being a wife and a mother seemed to be my calling. It’s who I was for the majority of my life. I loved being both. ♡ I just wasn’t the best at doing either one for that matter. 😦
Now that my 3 daughters are grown and I have no husband to serve, I’ve been left once again to ponder my calling. This time it’s different. I’m now flying solo. I’ve had to reinvent myself.
I’ve tried several things in the almighty search for meaning and purpose. And I think I can finally say I’ve found it. 🙂
I have always loved two things.♡♡
And underdogs.Those less fortunate. Whether it be people, pets, or even the broken chips in the basket at the Mexican restaurant. I’m drawn to that which looks a little different than the norm, the last ones to be picked, but by all practical purposes the ones with equal value.
Here’s what I’ve discovered.
I’m not going to make millions with a career in journalism. But, I’m well underway with establishing the habit of writing my daily blog. It has become as routine to me as brushing my teeth every day. I just do it. And I love it! ♡ I never know what will trigger my daily subject matter or at what time of day or night I might be led to write it. I have rather odd sleeping habits. But one thing I do know is, I do it every day. And usually with coffee cup in hand. It’s become a part of me. It’s therapeutic for me. And hopefully it’s somewhat encouraging for you and gets you to look inwardly at your own life a little. Or at the very least, it’s slightly entertaining for you. 🙂
I truly believe it’s God’s calling for me.
To pay the bills I’m presently working in a three year old developmental pre-K program. I’m also involved with many of the four year old pre-schoolers as well. I absolutely love what I do! ♡ I love those kids like they were my own!
I read this the other day, and am now thoroughly convinced I have found my niche.♡
I truly believe my deep gladness is writing and loving underdogs (after all, with all my brokenness, I’m the queen of underdogs!). And I truly believe the world’s deep hunger I am meant to meet is the need to serve those who don’t fit in the mold of normal. Whether it’s those who’ve ever felt unloved, unimportant, unsuccessful, unwealthy, unintelligent, unattractive, or simply those that are a challenge to reach, I believe I’m here to offer my hands and feet to show them God’s love.
Now to those of you that I call my friends that are thinking to yourselves right about now, I’m normal, why are you drawn to me? You might just want to think again. LOL None of us are perfect. That’s why we all need Jesus. 🙂
I’ve found what I believe to be my calling. What about you?
It was for this He called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
