For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
We all have something that we were made for, something that we are great at. It’s that one thing that makes us special, noticed, and appreciated. It seperates us from others, and gives each of us our own platform to stand on. I’m not referring to our talents, or the hobbies that we’re good at. I’m talking about what we are each called to do. I remember believing that I didn’t have a calling. Then one day, I stopped focusing only on what I wanted to do, and started focusing on what I was phenomenal at doing. I started paying attention to the things that I did that impressed others. I started taking heed to the areas others praised and complimented. Each of us has a calling. We each have that special gift that the world needs from us. That amazing thing, that is unique to us.
I know that our lives are full right now, but we can’t really live our lives until we have answered our calling. Write yourself a list of things that you enjoy doing, things you know that you are good at, but afraid to do, and things other people say that you excel at. Look for the areas that overlap. Try to determine what your calling is in life and start blessing both yourself, and the world with it. For those that know what it is, but are afraid to walk in it…. stop allowing fear to manipulate, and control you. Decide to take the step into the unknown and go. Find your way to living in your place of advancement and opportunity!
Whatever your calling is as a service, follow it- that’s beautiful.
