Vision for your life is THE most important part of your life. You will only be able to walk where you can see. Having a calling allows you to have a bigger vision for your life.
My wife and I have this terrible habit of going out to eat. I don’t know about you, but when we get bored, our first choice is to go out to eat. We have spent an astronomical amount of money on food. Yet, for as much as we go out to eat, we never know where we want to eat. Every time we go out to eat (typically on Fridays), we begin driving. And, we drive, and drive, and drive, all around Omaha. You’d be amazed at HOW LONG we drive. And usually, we end our journey at Texas Roadhouse!
And I am not complaining!
But this is what happens when you don’t have a calling. This is what happens when your life has no clear purpose or direction. Because we don’t have direction, we just drive and drive, with no idea where to go. Day-by-day, we go to work, go home, go to bed, and repeat.
So many people live like this. They get in the car with absolutely no direction as to where to go. But, people who live powerfully in their calling have this innate ability to get clearer and clearer ideas of their lives’ end GOAL. There is a level of intentionality to life that lets them know where to go.
People who live powerfully in their calling have this innate ability to get clearer and clearer ideas of their lives’ end GOAL.
So, I ask you simple questions. Where do you want to go in life? What type of difference do you want to make? These are just some of the questions that we will tackle in the next chapter.
Please answer the questions below as you APPLY these principles to your life:
Don’t think too hard, but, “Why are you alive?”
What is the WHY that God has given you?
Do you ever find yourself stuck in the “WHAT TO DO” of life?
