Searching for Calcutta
In a world filled with so many searching, hurting, and struggling I believe in a Divine Design. I believe EVERY life has a purpose, every human has a calling, a God Ordained Passion,ready and waiting for us to take that first leap of Faith. It's a hard leap and at times a shaky one, but that's all that's needed. Knowing the calling, recognizing it, and seeking it is the hardest part. Not knowing the outcome of pursuing that passion is where belief takes flight.
Things can be so complex and we get bogged down with the day to day responsibilities that a lifetime goes by and before you know it our dreams and passions have gone, disappeared, maybe changed. Sometimes those responsibilities become our reasoning for doing NOTHING. It's a routine, one we like, love, and is comfy. I no longer want to be comfortable. I want to jump wholeheartedly into the Cause.
I don't want my impact to be slight, I want to impact the world in such a mighty way, and not for the reasons you may think. But because I believe that we were all created for such things, for things known as God Ordained Passions. Therein lies the difference between Dream Catchers and Dream Chasers.
Some of our worlds Greatest Knowns and Unknowns have had them, Dreams, and God Ordained Passions. Reasons and Causes to pursue and change the world. And THEY did.
For Fifty years a woman that we all know as Mother Teresa worked among the poorest slums in a place called Calcutta, India. Little did she know what HER impact on the world was going to be as day by day she labored FOR those around her. WOW look at all the lives she touched. She was asked often by admirers, and those around her for advice on how they could help to change the world. Do you know her response? Nothing froofroo. Simply
"Find your own Calcutta".
If you knew that your actions could change just one life, what would you do?
