Your career makes a living but your calling makes your life.

So today’s question for you is twofold:

  1. Is your career fulfilling your ambitions?
  2. Have you accepted your calling?

As far as my first question is concerned, many find themselves falling into a particular job or career simply because of circumstances, i.e. It was the only job they could get, while others may have following a childhood dream, or through their academic achievements found certain opportunities opened for them.

Now my second question is for me the more interesting one, as in order to accept your calling, you have to first listen to God as He directs you , and then choose to accept the plan He has for your life.

It may be difficult to change your career, particularly given the current economic climate and lack of job opportunities at present. However it is never too late to say, “Yes”, to God’s calling. So whether you’ve been swithering for a short time, or ignoring God for years, it’s not too late to accept God’s calling now, today!

I hope you enjoy listening to the International Staff Songsters of the Salvation Army singing Christ Calls, as the message in this song, reinforces what I’ve written in this blog post:
