Yeah, but I still don’t see it.

So, you know that you’re called. But you just don’t know what it is. You can’t name it. First, let’s review Christ’s view of work and job description.

Look at the ravens, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, carefree in the care of God. And you count far more. (Luke 12:24The Message)

OK…you’ve got it. Don’t worry about the job description. Don’t worry about a prescription of what to do. Now what?

Turn around

If you’ve walked with the Lord for a little while, stop for a moment and ask God to remind you of what he’s done for you. And then to remind you of what he’s done through you.

Write it down

After he shows you something, write it down or do something that will allow you to remember what he’s done for, in, and through you. And then turn back around and continue walking and working in the same direction as before.

This place of memory is not a campsite. Rather, it’s an ebenezer – a place of remembrance, an anchor.

As you continue walking with God, pay attention to the seasons of your spiritual life as they pass. And as you are aware of the seasons, adjust your life accordingly. Take joy in every season, whether new life in spring, in growth, tending and weeding in the summer, harvesting in the autumn, or rest in the winter. And every so often, look back over your shoulder to take joy in what God’s done in, for, and through you.

If you do that, you’re sure to walk in your purpose, in faith, and in relationship with God.
