We pursue what others tell us is of value instead of engaging in the value that is ours to bring. The result is that we miss out on the bigger story around us.
Pursuing the calling our society tells us to pursue may provide for our physical needs, but only our true calling provides for those needs and ushers the dream into reality for us and all those we serve.
Your calling is anchored in your purpose. Your purpose is why you’re here. Your calling is doing what you are meant to do, where you are meant to do it, with those you are meant to. Your purpose and calling go hand in hand. But they are not the same thing. You can pursue a calling. But what happens when you pursue your calling; the one that fulfills your purpose?
When we work to take care of our own needs, they will never fully be filled. You are here to help meet a need in others. In meeting that need, you step into the story you are meant to be a part of. In that, all you need is available so that you can realize your purpose in all you do, as you fulfill your calling.That’s how it works. Which is why we must pursue the calling we are meant to have. If all of us meet the need we are meant to help answer, all the needs in the ultimate story will be met.
Pursue your calling. Fulfill your purpose in all you do.
