Excuse Me God, I Am Still Doing My Thing Here
Have you ever said to God, “Can I have a rain check?” Or “I am still busy pursuing my thing here. I will get back to you later.”
Most of us are guilty of this.
We have placed God on the sidelines or on the shelf.
Growing up we were thought to pursue our careers. We seldom hear people telling us to pursue our vocation. “Be a good doctor.” is more often heard than “Be a good follower of Christ.” Because of this kind of environment and philosophy, we have put all our hopes on our careers. We have come to believe that having a successful career would automatically bring us joy and fulfillment.
Having a successful career is not the end goal of our life. It is just a part of it. God created us with a certain purpose in mind. Each and one of us have a certain role to play in His great drama titled “Life.” Our vocation is finding that purpose, discovering that role. Only when we realize and live that purpose, that role, can we find true fulfillment and joy.
A fish is happy when it swims. A bird is happy when it flies. They are happy because they doing what they are created to do.
A fish out of water is an unhappy fish. A person who is not living his vocation is an unhappy person.
“In His will is our peace.” – Dante Alighieri
Discerning God’s calling to our lives should be our priority. It is our priority simply because we want to be happy, we want to be fulfilled. To delay is to postpone joy and fulfillment.
No more excuses!
