God’s Calling “How Will You Answer”
“What is God’s will for me” is an important question for those of us who want to be a student of Christ. Initially we may be thinking “Why should I care what God wants, what about what I want!” This is a fair response to students who are at a point in their life searching for a career path, learning an abundant amount of knowledge, all while trying to maintain or build healthy relationships. However, fulfilling these experiences will not satisfy us completely or give us purpose, even if we feel our life is on track. We must search and pray that our will match God’s will because ultimately He knows what’s best for us. Once we move beyond ourselves and towards a vocation of serving others we will begin to see the joy God has planned for us.
The word vocation originated in Christianity referring to a person’s “Call from God” to the priesthood. However, this blog aims to share real people’s stories of their call to various religious orders, marriage, and occupations that focus on the ministry of Christ. Traditionally one would reach their vocation through scripture, the Church, and your own personal history. Our blog will focus on an individuals encounter with one or more people who were living tabernacles of Christ and helped pave the road to their vocation. We all have moments where someone has dramatically impacted our life, hopefully you can relate to these stories or perhaps they may shine some light on your own developing vocation.
Take the time to read our blog, reflect, and comment on how others answered the call from God by encountering one or many of Christ Disciples.
