I listened the other day to an inspiring message by Kevin Miller on “calling.” I was especially interested in the topic because helping people find their calling has always been part of my calling.
Kevin built his message around the Frederick Buechner definition of calling: “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
That got me to pondering what my own calling is. I’ve known it for quite some time, but it feels like God keeps refining and clarifying it for me.
My calling is actually based on another quote, this time from Henry David Thoreau: “Most men live lives of quiet desperation, and die with the song still in them.” My “deep gladness” has always been to help people to hear and express the song God put in them to sing.
When I was a publishing coach, I helped people express “the song” God had put in them via getting a book published. But then I realized that most people don’t even know they have a song in them. Or, if they do, they can’t hear it. There is too much “static” from the “heart issues” for them to even perceive they were made to sing, let alone hear and express the unique “song” that God put them on earth to sing.
So now, as a Healing Codes Coach-Practitioner, my call is to help people to heal from the things that cause them to “live lives of quiet desperation,” so that they are able to first hear, then express, “the song that is in them.”
And what is that song? A friend said, and it fits perfectly: “God’s frequency of Love for each person.” How interesting, she went on to observe, that I would use frequencies–which is what The Healing Codes are and what they unlock–to do this healing work.
My “deep gladness” is definitely a deep hunger of most people. I believe it is because GOD has put a song in each one of us. In the depths of our hearts, each of us knows that we were made for something great. Human beings were made for Love.
If you don’t know what your calling is, I urge you not to settle for not knowing. You were made to know. I can tell you from experience that it is one of the deepest thrills of life to live out your unique calling. Heal the things that get in the way of your hearing and expressing your “song.”
Please, please don’t “die with the song still in you.”
