Why Finding Your Calling is Better

As leaders many of us work for a living. We follow the career path that we chose. The thing is people change. What we loved to do twenty years ago, we may no longer feel called to do.
Many of us make our career our calling, yet finding your calling is so much better. It is in this that we find the peace that has been promised to us.
We strive to climb the corporate ladder and increase our pay, for what? To find ourselves chained to our desks for years? I don’t think so, better yet I know that we are meant for more. Each one of us has been marked with a calling. We were chosen and just need to find what that calling is and practice.
“Therefore, bretheren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble;” ~ 2 Peter 1:10
Our calling has been chosen for us. Biblically we have been instructed to work hard at our calling. It does not say be “diligent to make certain the career He has chosen.” It states simply to be “diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you.” You have been chosen and called to do great things.
Finding your calling can be a bit of a challenge. It involves tuning into your inner “voice”.
What are you good at? Where do you excel in life. What makes you happy? Leaves you with a feeling of satisfaction or fulfillment.
