Following Our Calling

Author: sethskim  |  Category: Values

Today I was reading something about leadership and I came across this thought by Kirsten Strand. In her article, “Following A Tough Call” she writes:

“I have learned that ignoring a calling can lead to depression, anger, frustration, and a deep dissatisfaction with life. And I have learned that following a calling can also lead to moments of depression, anger, frustration, and loneliness. Yet, underneath those feelings will be a profound sense of peace and satisfaction.”

It is so true. Many times on the surface level following a call and being outside of God’s will might appear the same due to the difficulties of obeying God. I don’t know how many times I have doubted and even went through some periods of frustration.

But by the end of the day, I realized that there is a tremendous sense of peace knowing that God will equip me with everything that I need to fulfill the call.

“May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen” (Heb 13:20-21).
