What is your calling?

This Sunday at MCC we are continuing the “Whole Story” series by looking at the story of Abraham. In Genesis 12, Abraham is called by God to be the “father of many nations.” God promises to bless him, so that he can in turn bless others.

I have been reflecting on this idea of calling and being blessed-to-be-a-blessing, and I think  Frederick Buechner got it right when he said:

“The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”

With that in mind, what is your calling? It could be in a religious environment, a school, a hospital, at home with the family…it can really be anywhere your gifts, passions, and others needs meet.

  1. Psalms 37:4, “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

    God will give you the desires in your heart to pursue the things that you have a natural passion for. In addition when you are delighting yourself in God, those desires in your heart will be planted in your heart by God Himself.
