Guest post at ShameRX with Denise Pass Dubois
Check out today’s guest blog, where Denise and I talk about developing our calling while being free from shame.
Here is an excerpt:
Discovering Our Calling
Discovering our calling is rooted in finding the unique identities that were predestined for us in Christ.
Discovering our calling is about learning to celebrate progress over perfection.
1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (ESV)
“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5 and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; 6 and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.”
Developing Our CallingInvesting and developing our gifts is not self-focused, it is demonstrating the generosity of God’s goodness. #ShameRx @TheDenisePass @ShelleySinghAuD Click To Tweet
God is delighted when we begin to discover our identity and gifts as a Father delights in a child. Discovery is not shameful; it is a method of celebration!
A path is full of sights to see and beauty to relish. Our way to discovering our callings may not be a straight path or even one that makes sense. Condemnation may tell us that it is selfish to seek out your calling, but it is not true. Seeking out and discovering your calling will only help you release a fragrance of Christ in a thirsty world. Finding and developing a calling is a path of sacrifice done out of love for others for to give our gifts to others bless our Father’s heart.
