“When we think of someone pursuing a calling, we often picture a person who has it all together, someone who knows from the beginning what they were born to do.

They have a plan.

A person hears from God and becomes a priest. A professional athlete who grew up kicking a ball around the yard becomes a world-class soccer player. We picture someone who just knew what they were supposed to do with their lives and, at the right time, did it.

But a calling doesn’t always work like that. Sometimes, perhaps often, it is messy.”
