A question I often hear, "Can my calling change?"
My answer: Clearly! Very few people sense they are called to be doing the same thing at 70 they were doing at 17.
In the Bible, Moses starts off as enslaved baby, becomes a royal family member, justice-fighter, fugitive, shepherd, spokesperson, deliverer, leader, law-giver...
In modern career and work, your calling may change. Can you know when it does?
I write to those who are willing to periodically ask that question. And be open to the idea that it may be time to leave, seek promotion, get education, seek counsel, get your resume together or start creating a business plan.
Truly, it's important to periodically ask "What am I called to do... now?"
[cryout-pullquote s no hierarchical order to these)
Of course, there are seasons to suck it up, but should your calling be joyless or at least low on the joy meter? Really?
If they say, "I'd think you'd be much happier elsewhere...." that may just be a significant telltale sign!
So, when you do what feel that.... And if you don't "feel His pleasure," might that be a telltale sign you're not in your calling. Yes, it's totally subjective.... but you really do know it when you do and you know it when you don't.
Do you sense God's pleasure?
Or if one of your highest values is integrity and your work cause you to continually lie, stretch the truth or do things that aren't best for others, you may be in the wrong place.
I was working in one job and put on 25 pounds in about two years. Was this really what I was to be doing? Was my own weight gain a sign I wasn't thriving? My answer was yes!
Now, they wonder if they said "no" for the wrong reasons.
No, you may not need to do something today... but then again you may!
