82 – Calling

A young girl, named Ella, was only 12 years old when she heard this verse for the first time. She was sitting in church with her parents, and the pastor had just preached a sermon about Jeremiah. Ella had never heard of Jeremiah before, but she was immediately drawn to his story.

Jeremiah was a young man who was called by God to be a prophet. He was scared and didn’t feel qualified, but God assured him that he would be with him. Jeremiah preached for many years, but his message was not always popular. He was often ridiculed and threatened, but he never gave up. He knew that he was doing what God had called him to do.

Ella was inspired by Jeremiah’s story. She knew that she was not called to be a prophet, but she felt a calling to do something with her life. She didn’t know what it was yet, but she was determined to find out.

Ella started by volunteering at her church. She helped with the children’s ministry and the food bank. She also started attending Bible studies and youth group. As she got more involved in her church, she began to meet new people and make new friends.

One day, Ella was talking to a friend about her calling. Her friend told her about a program that her church was starting to help young people find their calling. Ella was excited to learn more about the program, and she signed up right away.

The program was a year-long journey that helped Ella to discover her calling. She learned about different career options and had the opportunity to shadow people in different fields. She also had the opportunity to take personality tests and spiritual assessments.

At the end of the year, Ella had a much better understanding of herself and what she wanted to do with her life. She decided to go to college to study social work. She knew that she wanted to help people, and she felt called to work with children and families.

Ella is now in her second year of college, and she is loving it. She is excited to start her career as a social worker, and she knows that she is making a difference in the world.

Ella’s story is an inspiration to us all. It shows us that we all have a calling, and that we can find it if we are willing to look for it. We don’t have to be a prophet like Jeremiah to make a difference in the world. We can all make a difference in our own way, and we can all be used by God to change the world.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.”

Jeremiah 1:5
