“He delivered us and saved us and called us with a holy calling [a calling that leads to a consecrated life—a life set apart—a life of purpose], not because of our works [or because of any personal merit—we could do nothing to earn this], but because of His own purpose and grace [His amazing, undeserved favor] which was granted to us in Christ Jesus before the world began [eternal ages ago]…” (II Timothy 1: 9, Amplified Bible)
You have always had a holy purpose. God has a divine intention for you and the way in which you actively express His qualities, His Life, His Love.
We are uniquely blessed by our calling. We may feel that we don’t know what we are doing or exactly what will give our lives meaning, our hearts joy and contentment. But God does know us and what we can do, what best serves His design, the one which He has known forever, and which can’t be lost.
The fact that you may yearn to truly know what will make your life both sing and be impactful, is already a sign that God has made you with a very certain plan for which you are absolutely ready. And this, not because you have accomplished human things or proved yourself in some arbitrary way that society may venerate. It is because of His Love.
God’s amazing grace has made you to fulfill His purpose by being you. This is what the Christ-Truth reveals. We are each formed to bear witness to God in wonderfully singular ways, and there will always be a place prepared for us to express His goodness as only we can do. Your life is set apart, not because it is lonely or difficult, but because it is unlike anyone else’s and prepared especially for the beauty, the glory, that is you!
