Courage & Calling: Embracing Your God-given Potential

InterVarsity Press, 1999 - 201 páginas
God has called you--first to himself, to know and follow him but also to a specific life purpose, a particular reason for being.This second call, to a defining purpose or mission in life, is often termed a vocation, from the Latin root meaning "calling." And while it has implications for your work or occupation, it also reaches wider. It includes your giftedness, your weakness, your life in community, what you do day to day. In this book, Gordon Smith invites you to discover your vocation by listening to God and becoming a coworker with him.What is my calling?How do I live it out in the midst of difficult relationships or moral challenges?Will my vocation change as I enter a new stage of life?As I cope with competing needs and demands, how can I craft a balanced, ordered way of living?Where do I find the courage to follow God's call?Smith addresses these questions and many more, pointing the way in this book toward freedom--and toward emotional and spiritual maturity. If you long to hear and follow God's call to you, here is the book that can get you started.
