God's Workmanship

So, have you found *your* calling? And no, I'm not talking about your telephone habits. :) And I'm not talking about doing whatever you can find until something better comes along. This is a bonafide certainty that what you are doing is where you are supposed to be. It's a confidence that you are using your skills and talents and abilities to their fullest and loving what you do. You are using your income to fulfill God's purpose for you here on earth.

And the best part? Your past doesn't disqualify you. God uses your past to determine your future. He uses your mistakes to make you stronger. And He'll call you to a job that seems too big for you to handle so you'll never forget where the Source of your strength is. All of your successes and awards and accomplishments will eventually leave you feeling empty, but knowing you are doing what God has told you to do will fill you like nothing else.

Now, doesn't that sound great?

When you respond to the call, several things happen. You feel "moved" or "led" in a certain direction, nudged to travel a certain path. Others will confirm it with compliments. You'll find what you need in order to complete the task in front of you. And most'll see results.

So, if you're not sure you've found your calling, take time now to ask God to show it to you. And if you are sure, praise God you've responded. And keep working at it!
