It’s great to have some concept of future plans, but it is our calling to live in the condition in which God put us in. I have always thought of a calling as something that God is saying you should do in the future. Which to some aspect, is true. Last year I felt a strong calling to go on a mission trip- so I did. However, you calling is also where you are at this current moment. God has you here, in this very circumstance for some reason. It fits in His plan. And you need to stop thinking of what’s next ALL of the time and listen to what God wants us to do in the now.
I’m more guilty of this than anyone. I am constant thinking of getting engaged. Right now, that is not my calling. My calling is to be dating David in a long distance relationship. I can’t tell you why, and I would be lying if I told you I wished it weren’t the case. But I need to stop pushing what’s next and take advantage of why God has me in this situation.
There is so much growing you can do if you live in the moment and really listen to what God is telling you.
I felt that God was asking me the other month why I was so focused on the next step of my life. But here is a thought-
When God is asking you a question, pay attention. He already knows the answer…He is trying to tell you something.
