Have you ever struggled with comparison or self-doubt? I have.
I used to dread questions like, “Have you found your calling yet?” or “What’s your calling in life?” because I felt like a failure for having to answer, “I’m not sure.” As an older teen and college student, I felt so much pressure to figure out what God wanted me to do with the rest of my life. It seemed everyone expected me to have my entire life mapped out before college graduation.
There have been several times in my life when I’d been begging God to work, and all I heard in return was silence. Sometimes, the silence was simply due to the fact that God wasn’t ready to work, and I had to learn to wait for His timing. Other times, however, the silence was due to my own wrong thinking, unbelief, and inaction.
