Following God’s will. Finding your purpose. Discovering your calling. Those were all the things I heard through the years that seemed to plague me more than inspire me. There have been so many sermons given and books written on this subject of vocation. My heart’s desire was to discover what God had for me. I wanted to live my life fully for Him. Yet, despite my efforts to find answers, I never really felt like I could figure out what God’s unique plan was for my life.
In my early twenties, I was bothered by the fact that I hadn’t had some big revelation as to what I was supposed to be pursing. I’d get new books and pray for God to enlighten me. I searched His Word for some secret passage that would speak to my heart and say, “This, Kristi! This is what I created you to do!” I had no real “Aha!” moment. His answer came softly and gently. It came to me through the years in moments when I was doing more than just thinking about what I should be doing.
