A couple of things that didn’t make it into today’s post about discerning vocations:
One is that God doesn’t just call you, one time, in passing, to do something. When something is your vocation, you get called and called and called to do it, and it will be hard to ignore the call.
Two is that you’re not going to be called to do something you hate. You may sometimes be frightened or uncomfortable with the idea, but there will always be something that appeals to you in your vocation; and once you make the choice to answer that call, you will feel good.
And three is that, a single vocation can comprise a whole range of activities. Often times, when we look back over the last decade or so, we’ll realize that we have been following our vocations in one form or another.
