When I wonder if God has a calling for me: See if any of you can relate to this and maybe take a few minutes to meditate upon these words. Dear God, deep down inside, I long to be part of something bigger than myself. I sometimes wonder why I was born and what I should be doing with my life. I believe my search for purpose is actually the result of you calling me to discover the reason you created me. I believe this from the bottom of my heart, it only makes sense. Before I found the Lord I wandered aimlessly trying to find purpose in my life, to no avail, I always fell short. Think about it, God knows all things, so when we surrender to his will he begins to reveal that wonderful plan when we begin to ask, the purpose becomes reality.
I often wish, God, that your call would come in the form of an audible voice or a miraculous sign in the sky. But that’s not usually the way you communicate, and you don’t always call people to extraordinary, life-changing adventures. Your call is often a task right in front of me, something I can do today; it might be working in the nursery at church, caring for an ailing parent, giving kind instructions to a child, making dinner at a local soup kitchen, or volunteering at a my child’s school. Lord, you have given me special gifts and abilities, and you want me to use them now, not just five or ten years from now. Help me to answer your call to serve you and other people today so that I might be fully prepared when you call me to something bigger. Thank you that in everything you call me to do, you will equip me with the desire, vision, support, and resources I need to carry it out.
This I know, God is shaping me and molding me for what I love to do. It takes time so it is imperative he knows that we are ready, discipline and patience my friends. That day wil come about just when you least expect it. Believe that!
1Thessalonians 5:23-24- May the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. God will make this happen, for he who call you is faithful.
It’s this easy my friends. If you are curious and you feel like you have no purpose in life, I encourage you to ask someone greater than yourself through earnest prayer. Just say Lord, Lord, what is it that you want me to do. I promise you this, he will show you step by step and you will be filled with unspeakable joy. Praise God!
God bless you all this wonderful day that the Lord has made.
