|Created for Good™||
Does life have a purpose?
What is my vision?
Do I have a calling?
How do I discover it all?
I believe that we all ask these questions. And we should. I also believe that how we answer them will determine the outcome of our lives…nothing short of that.
Whether you are asking these questions for yourself or for a team, Created for Good™ can help you find the answers and build strategies to achieve your calling.
The answers you are looking for lie, in part, within two brief statements:
“The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
~Frederick Buechner, Theologian, Wishful Thinking: A Theological ABC
“Someday I hope you get the chance, to live like you were dyin’.”
~Tim McGraw, Country Music Artist, Live Like You Were Dyin’
Your gladness and the world’s hunger…what an amazing intersection. To live like you were dying…how freeing.
At Created for Good™, we embrace a simple premise:
“For we are His workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

Thoughts & Questions
All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible.

Do you have the vision and passion of “the dreamers of the day”?
It is very dangerous to go into eternity with possibilities which one has oneself prevented
from becoming realities. A possibility is a hint from God. One must follow it.
Sören Kierkegaard, The Soul of Kierkegaard: Selections from His Journals
Are you following the possibility that is a hint from God?
I do not fear…it is for this that I was born!
Joan of Arc (attributed)

Therefore Lord Jesus, I owe more to your sufferings because I was redeemed than I do to the works for which I was created.
St. Ambrose of Milan, Exposition of the Gospel of Luke 2:41-42
When you think of calling, do you first think of vocation or relationship?
