well, I can't say that I have a calling to any "industry" I feel more called into ministry- however God HAS provided me an opportunity to provide and pay my way into the ministry by teaching english for a job.
The awesome thing is that my Wife has a calling into teaching children- it is amazing how God put a desire into her heart from an early age to do some work that will be right along with the ministry that he called me into a long time ago! :D God works things together perfectly to do his will on earth!
good question. Something relating to economics...but I don't have a clue beyond that...Professor? Banker? Think Tank? Political Adviser? Analyst? I don't know. In any case, I will have a chance to serve the kingdom by a.) Feeding and clothing the widows and orphans en masse...or more likely given my interests, healing the widows and orphans...and everyone else. (healthcare economics) b.) being salt and light to some of the most powerful men and women of society (politicians, boards, professors, etc.) c.) doing both.
But I'm still in college, so I figure I have a while before "crunch time," and God will show me when the time is right.
i feel like my call in life is to help with poverty in the slums of the philippines. as in, i've dreamed it - day dreamed, dreamed about it at night. i imagine myself on the plane ride towards there. i imagine the streets i would stroll, the people i would meet. my heart thumps at the thought of helping these people.
:[ unfortunately i don't think my parents would let me drop everything and move there on my own. so here i am, about to go to college, and i still have the faintest clue to what i want to be when i grow up. i will be praying about it - i just wish i was a better listener. -__-.
For as long as I can remember, I've known what God wants me to do. But now that I am an adult and have a young family I am terrified of the sacrifices and struggles pursuing that path will lead to. It is by far my biggest source of guilt and something I struggle with daily. I'm always thinking of excuses. When I talk to people about it, my excuses at least satisfy them. I know in my heart they aren't good enough for God, though. And I wish I had more faith that if I committed to that journey he would see me through.
I am trying to discern between a call to ministry or a call to become a psychologist (or psychotherapist.. something a long those lines.) So my plan is to go to college for psychology and if I did end up wanting to go into ministry, that would provide as a good undergraduate study.
well at first i studied finance then i applied to so many jobs in the end i can't get any jobs when i graduated in 2001. But when i applied to teaching, i managed to get the job almost immediately, yes i and ups and downs but yet i m still here for the last 7 yrs..i feel its god's guidance and with god's blessings. We will see how it goes tho.
Job? Not so sure anymore. Seems like God is "finally" allowing me to see some of my dreams come to fruition -- just not in my timing -- and the dreams don't jive well with my current job. Good time to reassess & pray & seek God's face. Being challenged to trust on new levels. This isn't where I thought I'd be in my early 40's -- but I sense a real peace that this really is where God thought I'd be. So it's a day at a time. Or a moment at a time, depending on how much my fear & control take over. It's definitely a journey -- and it's been quite a ride so far!
@mZEROq@xanga - I checked out your site. I really like "Light" and would totally buy it. Keep growing this talent. It's amazing you were able to make so much good music while having a different job. Some of it was not my style but it was all original and I think others would enjoy what did not as deeply speak to me. *Thumbs up*
