Calling And Abundance

During my priests homily this morning he talked about calling primarily and from that a secondary rift on abundance. Every person has some sort of calling and from a religious sense its about opportunities that God has given to humanity. I think a calling is an opportunity to do great things. You have an abundance of people and places and cool things that come into your life because of it.

The crazy part of it all is when you answer the call lots of stuff happens that makes it possible for your to fulfill your new duties in life.

This thing about abundance has been kind of loaded in the sense that it seems to be used by some to grace people with wealth and riches. My mindset comes from a place of fairness and justice where there are so many people who are living without. Maybe abundance can be measured in different ways where its about all the cool things you get to do in life.

So as I contemplate the notions of calling and abundance perhaps I can find out more and see how it can change my view and life. Let’s see how it goes. Here is to all of us seeking to do what we are called to do in abundance.

Daily Prompt: Calling

I make my living on the telephone calling donors of the blood bank I work for to make appointments to come in and donate blood. Very niche if you think about it. I work in a small call center with 15 other people. We all make our living dialing people up and appealing to their charitable and altruistic nature to help save lives. Calling is a thing you do and a thing you accept.

The key to calling is the hope someone picks up or you can at least leave a message to ask them to call you back because calling is a two-way street. No matter who calls being polite and respectful is helpful because you never know what will be asked of you or opportunities you have to do amazing things. Trust me I have heard it all in the responses I get. The one thing I have to do is keep smiling and dialing because I like the roof over my head and I like to eat. So every day I am hanging on the telephone and hopefully someone will call me back.
