At 25 I’ve finally figured out why I’m here. I know my calling / vision / mission / values / theology of cultural engagement / spiritual gifts / talents & strengths / motto / skills / and myers-briggs type indicator.
I know who has influenced me, what life events have shaped me, what books have changed me.
To know these things…well, it takes time—years . It takes reflection—both habitually and randomly. It takes humility and courage. Humility to learn from the past and from the present. Humility to face yourself and to face God. Courage to face the future. Courage to face yourself and to face God.
Getting the right mixture of humility and courage is difficult. It takes time. But when you get it right, you’ll know.
