Before we get to calling, it is important to understand purpose. For years I thought the world was my oyster – or at least parts of it! Indeed, my life’s purpose is bigger than me! In reality, getting beyond myself was a long and sometimes difficult process. There was a point that I discovered that the world was not all that I thought it to be. Getting there involved brokenness, recognition of need, loss of self in terms of realizing that God’s purpose is greater than my own and putting the prideful, self-sufficient me aside, the impact of His word, and the positive godly influence of both people and community in my life. I had no inkling of what a calling was or that it was even a question to be asked. I was focused on the foundational question of purpose – the matter of why am I here. Is it true that we serve God by serving others?
