What is My Calling?

via
I had a really good day yesterday.  There were moments when I wanted to throw in the towel and put my head on my desk in defeat because of the busy-ness of the day, but I didn't.  I just kept working, working, working.

When I got home, I took a long shower before dinner and let the work day wash away.  It felt good.  We ate a leftovers kind of a dinner and then just hung out together as we always do.  This is my life.  It is good.

I woke up again this morning ready to take on another busy workday.  Still happy and grateful for the life I have, I got dressed and yet again feel really pretty.  Like I said yesterday, or at least implied, happiness makes us beautiful.  It just does and I am slowly, in this new 40th year of life, realizing just that.  When I wake up happy or at least feeling good about the new day, my attitude changes.  It takes a turn for the better.

Last night, as I lay my head down to sleep, I thought of what God's calling was for me.  See, I don't read the bible, study devotionals every morning, go to church, or anything like that - but I believe.  I believe that each of us are put on this earth by a greater power to fulfill our best life the best way we can.

I don't know exactly what God has planned for me.  I don't know where to find out how to know what my calling is.  There isn't a guidebook with step-by-step instructions.  If there was, you now I would be taking those steps.  If I asked someone, one of you, how to figure it out, you would probably tell me to pray about it and just ask Him.  But, you know what?  I fear I won't be able to hear His answer.  I fear that the enemy will trick me.  I think I would "think" I heard the answer, but it would be from the wrong source. 

But I do know one thing for sure...I know that in time, my path will go towards what God has planned for me.  It always does.  I just need to live my life the best way I can and being the best version of myself that I can.  Don't you agree?

If you have any pointers, I'd love to hear them.  If you have thought of this at all, what His calling is for you, I want to know what you think.  I like sharing these thoughts and experiences with you.  I want to know your thoughts and that I'm not alone in this.

We're never alone.  We've got each other.  We will be happy today.  We will be the best versions of ourselves and let the haters hate.  It's that easy.  Step by step...

...together.

  1. I love both of these quotes and what you are saying about not being alone. You will find your way! ;-) My fave quote is from Dr. Suess. You have brains your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  2. I don't read the bible or do devotionals either, but I follow some really powerful Christians on Instagram who five me my daily bread if you know what I mean. Honey Holden, The Freshly Brewed, and a few others I'll have to tag you in. I think a relationship with Jesus is personal and exactly what you make of it. Just like friendships and marriages. If you know he's there and say a prayer, or ask him for guidance then you have faith. There is no limit or minimum you have to have when it comes to faith, you just have to believe in what you cannot see.

  3. This is beautiful friend! I've seen this quote floating around and I thought it was the perfect time to share it with you, "The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling." So, you may not always know, but whatever you're passionate about, pay attention to that! xoxox

Hey Lovey! You're commenting! You just made me happier than...well, me with a Chestnut Praline Latte. (Yes, now you know what to order for me if we ever go to Starbucks - lol)
