A Whale's Belly
I am caught in the belly of a whale
By my own rebellion
In the refuse of the world
A dark place
I am Jonah
Oh God, deliver me
Where is Nineveh?
Spit me out
A song by the Newboys.
Some are called, some are chosen
I have met people who knew from an early age what their life's work would be. This saves a lot of time and money, since one can narrow down the schools and subjects to take to reach their goals. I have also met people who switched careers often and never found passion in what they were doing. Finding your purpose in life is key to happiness. If you are radiant in what you do, it will attract power, and everything else will fall in place.
Then there are those who are called, like Billy Graham. They seem to have tunnel vision, driven to one purpose with remarkable dedication. Almost super-natural. These people have to follow a calling, and I believe they are chosen. It seems so natural and easy for them, but I'm sure the demands are so monumental that they have their Jonah moments.
