A friend recently recommended a new book, Training Camp, by Jon Gordon. The setting is an NFL pre-season training camp and I'm a big football fan, but was not convinced this was a good book until I got to the last few chapters. Gordon says, "the best are most energized when they are using their gifts and talents for a purpose beyond themselves. The best are driven by a bigger purpose, and this purpose fuels them".

For most of us, finding our purpose, our true calling, can be a lifelong search. As a believer, we are called to many things, most of which fit in the category of doing God's will. But if you believe that we all have God-given abilities, it can be a challenge to put our finger on a unique calling. What is my purpose? What drives me?

I'd like to encourage you to begin and/or continue the search for purpose. Until you discover your dream, keep working hard at the job or career you have and try to find something you enjoy doing, such as a hobby, exercise or interest. There are good books to help you discover your purpose, but it will likely take time and intentional effort to be successful on this journey. It might also take periods of quiet and questioning, making lists and listening, as well as quality conversations.

We are constantly reminded that it's all about me. Take care of yourself. Look out for Number One. But true purpose using God-given talent is about giving, not getting. I wish you the best on the quest to find your calling.
