As we grow up we are taught to love, obey, and work hard for what we want or love. However, have you ever thought about what your true calling really is? I mean, I totally get it we are taught to go to school and literally get a degree that is meant to put food on our table. We are taught that having a “certain title” will make us “important” , and so many are fed into this idea. We are taught that getting a high degree is a life goal achievement, but have you ever thought about what your true calling is? I do not mean what is it what you want, but what God wants for your life. You see, I see so many people that the more they have the more they want, but they are not humble and become ignorant and blinded by how society now a days “think”. I have been going through so many things that I have decided to stay away from social media for a bit, and just take in the word of the Lord. As I was reading the bible, there is one verse that stood out to me which said,
“Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.” But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 1:4-10
and that really shook me because it made me reflect. There are times that God just takes me into a different direction that totally leaves me clueless, and wondering why I cannot get to my goal asap. I know that God has something in store for me that is bigger then my imagination, and I know for a fact that it will start next year (trust me I just know). This year I have seen that God is just shaping me up to be more humble, and to start hanging around with people that have the same mindset as I do. This month was a year for letting go, learning, and most important be more active in church. HA! I remember those days where I decided to stay at home, and study while forgetting to go to church on Sundays or Fridays. I figured out that I was lacking going to church, and be stuck into my own bubble of studying/school/work. I learned that people that would say I wouldn’t have time for church were actually wrong. I figured out that I felt empty because what was missing was God in my life. The more I studied…the more I faded away..see what I mean? I would read the bible and pray at home, but this month I learned that what I did was NOT enough. This all came to me when I had the privilege of doing VBS (Vacation Bible School), and honestly it’s a feeling I cannot explain. The last day of this event, was the one that struck me the most because not only did it end too quick, but also it taught me a lesson I will never forget. I learned that even though when I think I am trusting God I saw that I am not doing it “fully”, and also I need to start seeing his bigger picture and not mine.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Seeing all of those children that were coming to VBS it made me not only complete, but also I figured out what God wants to do with me. God completely crushed all of my ideas, and made my life whole in one week. There is just one catch, I won’t be telling anyone what I will be doing, but only to the ones that God already showed me. The ones that God put in my vision are people that are filled with his spirit, active in church, and also I know they will uplift me in every way possible. This takes me to another verse that God showed me which says,
Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring. Let another praise you, and not your own mouth— a stranger, and not your own lips. Proverbs 27 1-2
I think this verse is self-explanatory is it not? It’s like Okay God I am hearing you, and again just manage my life like you want to because at the end my life belongs to you. BOOM! Just like that! Am I excited for what the plans of God are for me? YES! but am I scared? Not really because he is the one that is managing everything. So now that I figured out my calling, my question to you is: Have you figured out yours? If you haven’t I would suggest you to take some time and meditate. Read the bible because all the answers of life are right there, but you really need to pay attention for keywords. Now, I am going to show you all my VBS team, and you would see a little of our work in the pictures, and the video. I want to thank God that we had over 100 people this year! It was amazing, and super fun! Check this out:
God has been so great and honestly I couldn’t ask for a better calling then what God put in my life. To God be all the glory and all the praise. With all this being said, I hope you all have a wonderful day or night depending in where you guys live at lol! Love ya’ll and see you guys on the next post. God bless.
