Calling:a strong inner impulse toward a particular course of action especially when accompanied by conviction of divine influence.
I struggle with this word daily. Not with its meaning or whether I believe it to be true. But with the weight that it brings.
As a young Christian, this word itself has unknowingly and unintentionally consumed my life for longer than I am willing to admit. It’s like I am in this constant state of searching for what calling the Lord has placed on my life. And though searching and seeking is healthy, it can also be dangerous. I have found myself looking at the lives of others and thinking, “Man, why can’t I just find my calling like they have? Why doesn’t the Lord speak to me the way He has to them?” These questions wander through my mind and there I find myself again, consumed with my calling.
