31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes 01: "Calling"


We've been challenged by Kate over at Heading Home to write for 5 minutes on a one word prompt for the next month.  So without further ado...


GO! 

II Peter 1:10 - Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall.

Romans 11:29 - For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
 
I wrote a while back about the gifts that God has given me, but I've not written much about my calling.  I haven't because I don't really know what it is. 

This has been a real struggle for me.  While my friends are in the throws of their calling as a wife and/or mom, I'm left in the dust.  Is there an acceptable calling for women outside of the domestic?  Is there room at the table for a woman living the "non-family" life?

**Waiting for more inspiration as the clock ticks away**

Yes, I have many gifts, but no true calling.  I need a true purpose for my life.  I need to find my "why" as Danny Cahill would say.

STOP!

  1. Always room for those not doing the family thing. You are free to do amazing things. Thank you for your words. Your calling will come. Keep doing whatever you love and what God gives you for today. Writing #31FreeWrites with you.
