You may be moved in a direction
You do not understand,
Away from the safe, the familiar,
Toward a vision that is blurry,
Yet still pounds against
The doors of your dreams…
-Susan Rogers Norton
Have you ever felt like this? Does it seem familiar?
Is it happening to you now?
That pounding on the door may very well be your destiny.
If you’ve got a calling, it doesn’t matter how old you are or what you’ve done before. It only matters that you recognize that it’s a knock that means business.
And you need to mean business back. Which means you need to find a way to do what you are called to do.
It might not be what you think it is. Let me say that again: It might not be what you always thought it would be. It might be something entirely different.
It’s not a wish and a promise. It’s stronger than that.
It’s not a fantasy. It’s more powerful than that.
Don’t think that’s something that will just appear. It can, but probably won’t. It’s going to take some work.
It might take consideration. It may take study. It might take time–it might not happen overnight.
You might have some false starts. i know I have.
You might resist it. You might already have resisted it. But it’ll keep coming up.
Have you had a calling or do you have one now? What are you doing about it?
