God showed Me my calling and he WILL show you YOURS.
Hi, Friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful morning/afternoon/evening where ever you are. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to read something from me, I appreciate you!! As always, YOU are Loved and I hope that God speaks to you today, Amen?!
If this is your first time visiting my blog, Welcome, I’m SO glad you’re here. For more information about me feel free to visit my About page HERE and my Introduction page HERE. I can’t wait to meet you!
God has recently revealed to me my calling. He has been doing so slowly over the course of my life, but it’s all starting to make sense now.
God has called me to start this blog (hello *Insert waving emoji here*) He told me that I would be a professional blogger. Not just any blogger, but a blogger whose purpose is to share the love and the gospel of God with women all over the world. I am also called to start a youtube channel and in the future, I will be called to write books.
How did God Reveal this to me?
It was not until after God closed a major door in my life that I was able to hear this calling. Before the door was closed, I was involved in something that was not at all God’s will. I knew for years that it wasn’t His will for my life but I ignored Him because that was what I wanted. God had to slam that door for me to realize that I have something I am called to do. I was so hurt but I began to build my relationship with the Lord. I started reading my Bible every day, journaling my prayers and asking God daily to show me my purpose. Once I submitted my life completely to the will of the Lord, I was able to hear this calling.
How did I Know that It was God speaking to me?
God is so good! To this day, I have never heard God speak to me audibly, but my calling came to me as a thought. In my mind I heard “You will write a blog, you will start a youtube channel and you will write books (Not just one, Many!)” Now, you may be thinking “That’s all in your head”, “you could have put those thoughts there”, “How is that God’s calling?”. Let me stop you right there. I did not want any of this. Never in a million years would I have thought that I would start a faith-based blog, a faith-based youtube or write faith-based books. My plan for my life was to get my degree in Business and become an Entrepreneur! A minor in English was not even on my radar until 9 months ago and even then I had no idea what I’d do with the degree.
When this thought came to me, I was still hesitant. It took me two weeks from the time I had this thought to finally start this blog, and you better believe I prayed every day for confirmation. Still, I had to be completely sure this was what God wanted. I went through my checklist.
- Is this something the devil put in my mind? No, The devil would never tell me to start anything that had to do with glorifying God.
- Is this something I put in my mind? No, definitely not!
- Is this something God put in my mind? Yup.
Let me tell you how I knew it was God.
I felt, and still feel, SO unqualified. How on earth was I suppose to start this blog? Sure, I’ve been a Christian all my life but I’m so unqualified! How can I speak to women all over the world about the love of Christ when I’m just now learning this for myself? How am I suppose to start a youtube channel? I need a camera and those are SO expensive. I’m paying for school out of pocket, there’s no way I can afford a camera. I’d have to dedicate a lot of time to filming and editing and I’m already so busy with school and work. What would I even talk about?! How am I going to write books when I’ve never been that great of a writer? What will the books even be about? Straight off the bat I was terrified. Nothing made sense. That’s when I KNEW. God qualifies those he calls.
How can you know your calling?
Only after God closed that major door in life, and after I fully submitted my life to Him was I able to hear my calling. I said “Use me, show me your will for my life and let it be done. Help me to listen and obey” I told God that he could use me, I gave him my all and I submitted fully to his plan for my life. Only then was I able to receive my calling.
Pray to God, ask him to reveal the things in your life he is not happy with. If you are truly set on following Gods perfect will for your life. Ask him and he WILL deliver.
Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
When the timing is right, you will know.
Gods timing is perfect. I had been feeling so off. For the last year or so, nothing interested me. The things I normally loved to do were no longer fun. I basically spent most of my time laying in bed on my phone because I didn’t want to do anything. Once I started Praying to the Lord, asking him to show me my purpose, he revealed it to me. But I still had to go through that phase in my life where nothing interested me because, without it, I wouldn’t have felt the need to cry out in prayer. There is a time for everything. God knew the exact time, even the exact moment that he would reveal my calling to me. But he had to prepare me for it. Be patient, your time will come.
Acts 1:7 He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.
Thank You so so much for bearing with me through this incredibly long post.
I hope that I was able to speak to somebody through this blog. Please let me know in the comments what your calling is if you know it, or if you don’t and you are willing to submit your life to God to find out, just type “I will Let God” in the comments. This way I can pray for each and every one of you. Please share this so that I can touch others as well!
