Your Calling


Your Calling
New Commitment Series
Net's Notations Tuesdays

During church on Sunday, God highlighted people’s callings. If you’re here, reading Seriously Write, I’m going to take a risk and guess you’re called to write. *grin* That morning, as God highlighted callings, He spoke through prophecy to our congregation. See if you can relate with these messages.

Has the dream died? Sometimes when we don't see the results we thought we'd see in a certain time frame, we lay the dreams aside. If we go long enough, they die. It's time to bring them back to life—to speak life over them and into them and watch God move in fresh ways as we recommit.

Have you held back because of the responsibility? You know your dreams require sacrifice. Callings are costly. But is that a reason to put off doing what you were created to do? Don’t let it be.

God rekindled my dreams the other day in the drug store, of all places. I saw a rack of books in an unusual place—just paperbacks by one or more authors. I want that—my books, out there. I have lots of manuscripts written and I’m sure several more in my heart waiting to be written. And one of my dreams is just to have them out there. Of course, I’d love to be a best-selling author one day, too. *grin*

What about you? Has God make your calling clear? Write it down. What are your dreams? Write them out. Then, recommit to pursuing them, no matter the cost. Ask for wisdom, dive in and be steadfast. You and your destiny are about to collide.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord,
knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Cor. 15:58, NKJV)

  1. YES! Thank you for the great reminder and confirmation of my calling as a writer. I have been taking one day off work each week to devote to writing and today's blog post is the beginning of a possible new book! Yeehaw!

  2. Yay! It's interesting, too, for me this week--God has reminded me of a part of my calling I'd forgotten about. He breathed on it and brought it back to life. So thankful for this fresh word from Him. :D

    Thanks for reading and all His best with your writing and calling.
