43: Are You Struggling in Your Calling?

podcast Oct 12, 2022


What do you expect living your Calling to be like? Most people naturally say it’s a life where everything feels aligned and at ease. They would not be wrong, however, let’s not forget that another side of Calling exists. Living your Calling includes the struggles of carrying your purpose out.

Take the Apostle Paul for instance. He specifically writes that Calling brings struggle, toil, and labor. He reflects on the gift of being called by God to persist in his purpose. Are you struggling in your Calling? If you are, remember that God commissioned you for this unique role.

In this episode, we’re talking about struggle and Calling. We’ll read through Colossians 1:25 to 2:3 where the Apostle Paul reflects on his commitment to honor God despite life’s struggles. This talk gives a moment to understand Paul’s journey with his Calling, Christ’s role in this journey, and your journey with your Calling. We reflect on these themes to bring clarity and meaning in our faithful pursuit of Calling.

Listen as we discuss struggle, labor, and the strength God gives you to move forward.
