Wherever I have travelled and spoken, one of the most popular questions I get revolves around finding our calling.
"How do I find my calling?"
"How do I find my purpose?"
I can tell you this for sure...
It's not on Amazon.
It can't be ordered, shipped, and dropped off at our front door.
We have to get up every day and move in the direction of it, even if we don't ultimately know where we'll end up finding it, or how we'll realize it.
It's a series of "MAYBE" moments that lead us there.
A conversation, an internship, a service project, a new job, retreat, a vacation, or some other experience that touches our soul and stirs our heart.
Can I share some encouragement with you if you are feeling delayed, frustrated, or confused along the way?
Don't be in a hurry to get there.
That might sound funny, but I've realized how true that is.
You can't rush a clock.
A second is a second, is a minute, an hour, and a day.
Enjoy every moment in them.
Don't miss them because you are looking past them.
"MAYBE" you need to stop stressing about the outcome, and learn to fully embrace the joy that is the process. I say that now, after having not done it very well for a long time in my own life.
"...it MAY BE that..." enjoying the journey will open your eyes, some doors, and opportunities that you least expected.
It has for me.
Be content, my friend.
A calling that is understood comes from a consistency that is applied.
Second by second.
Minute by minute.
Hour by hour.
Day by day.
Each one is a blessing.
Each one another piece to the puzzle.
It will all come into focus exactly as it should be, when it should be, as long as we see the value in being who we are...consistently.
