Humans make me laugh. We still don’t get it. Since the dawn of time, we’ve wanted to know and control everything. When we can’t, we get worried and stressed. Our behavior becomes irrational. Ever since we caved in to the original temptation, we’ve been on that all-knowing quest.
One thing I’ve learned is that God has hidden from me almost everything I should know about His providential purpose for me, which He is working out in my life. I’ve accepted I know something, but cannot know everything. I have an expiration date, but I don’t know when that date is, and I’m cool with that.
Therefore, I’m not going to waste one minute of my life from this day forward. I trust Him to create something beautiful in me for His glory. All angst has subsided in my mind. Peace has infiltrated my steadfast spirit.
Knowing this, the practical application is asking, “How can I make this world better for others?” I have nothing to lose and everything to gain by searching for that answer.
Well, I’ve found it. It’s in training professionals for their calling. That’s how I can make this world better for others.
Does your career feel like a job or a calling? A job is something you get. A calling is something you craft. A job is an event in your life. A calling is a process. A job serves you. A calling serves others.
The minute you stop trying to figure everything out is a major milestone. Your job will start to become to your calling. No matter where you are at that point, you will be content, yet driven. You will be aware of His authority over your life and be able to live with the assurance of His presence and provision for you.
