Dear Dave,

When it comes to your career and profession, how can you tell if you’ve truly found your calling in life?

– Tony

Dear Tony,

I don’t think it’s common for most folks to feel like they’ve experienced some kind of grand revelation, and suddenly they know what they’re supposed to do with their lives.

Personally, I believe this kind of thing usually starts out as an activity or idea connected to something they enjoy and want others to experience. Often, that can grow into a job, and then maybe into a career or even a business.

I think it takes a lot of time, reflection, insight, and self-evaluation before anything can be termed a calling.

I know this is true in some cases, because that’s how it happened with me. I can’t honestly tell you that when I first started on radio, or began formally teaching and writing I knew it was God’s plan for my life.

I knew early on I was drawn to it, and felt there was a need for it, but it took a while for me to understand and accept that it was what I was really meant to do.

I hope this helps a little bit, Tony. Just be honest with yourself, think about it, and pray about it a lot, too. God wants what’s best for you, so make sure you include Him in everything. It worked for me.

I’ve been doing what I do for nearly three decades now, and I still love it. I’m convinced that it is God’s calling on my life.

— Dave
