Calling

September 10, 2008

Career v. Calling
Job v. Vocation

What can I do with this moment?

If God has called me to something, nothing in the world will stop that from happening.

Pray.

Don’t force life to happen.

Experience.

Journal.

Engage in conversation.

I’m busy thinking about a lot of things these days. Nothing new, I suppose, since my mind is always traveling faster than my body. After a conversation with a friend over dinner last night, I was reminded of some of the thoughts above. Did you know there is a difference between job and vocation? These are all thoughts I’ve had before, but that have been lost somewhere in the weeds along the path I’ve been on the last year.

It’s been a rough one, the last year. For many of us. Life continues to suprise us. When we think we’ve got everything figured out, something new creeps into the pathway. What great joy it is to accept what each day has to offer. It’s so easy for me to be frustrated or anxious about what I don’t know. It’s nice when a friend gently encourages me with a reminder, in a new way, that I live for Christ. And He loves me.
