We think of life calling as a supernatural purpose that brings good to the world, creates meaning and joy, and uses your strengths. It's why you were put on earth and it flows from who you are.
How can I find my life calling?
Finding your life calling is one of the most important things you can do. We've got ways to help! It's a process and isn't done overnight. Finding your calling is a combination of looking at yourself; exploring the world for needs that press you; committing to spiritual practices like contemplation, prayer, and meditation; and involving others in your journey. Keep in mind that calling is more of a journey than a destination, so you may be called to one thing at a particular season in life, but called to another in a different season.
Is life calling only for people who have their lives all together?
No! If that was the case, no one would have a life calling. Life calling is sometimes shaped by painful experiences, brokenness, and failures. And, some scientific evidence suggests that facing trials actually help to solidify or strengthen one's search for calling. Life calling can be a stabilizing force in your life.
Is my job the same thing as my life calling?
Maybe, but it doesn't have to be. Your life calling is bigger than your job. You may have a job thru which you live your calling out. Or you may have a job that helps to support your life calling, which is lived out in other ways. Either way, it's important to find the connection between your work and your calling. That will increase your sense of purpose, motivation, and belief.
