My Calling of Purpose
It began just like any other day. I woke up to the bright sun shining through my curtains. Rubbing the sleep out of my eyes, I stalked towards the kitchen to fix myself some breakfast. Even the low churning of the coffee machine signaled that it too was begrudgingly waking up. After opening and closing the refrigerator several times expecting something else to appear I settled for a simple bowl of cereal. I washed down my Cheerios with the warm, freshly brewed coffee and made my way back to my room. Upon entering, I noticed that I had several articles of clothing scattered across the floor. However, due to the rules of my high school, I was required to wear a uniform. As I started putting on my itchy polo shirt and my plaid, knee length skirt, I wondered if the rest of my day was going to go well. So after I brushed my teeth and fixed my unruly hair, I got into my car and set out on my long eight-minute commute to school. Since I am on the yearbook staff, we had taken the opportunity to participate in a yearbook convention at one of the local children’s schools. I was so excited, partially because I got to skip classes for the day, but also because I knew close to nothing about making a yearbook. When I arrived at my school, I noticed how quiet it looked. Well, it was an hour before the school actually opened, but it had sort of a peculiar, tranquil aura about it. After I parked and got out of my car, I saw a couple of my fellow staff members
“I don’t want to go to school today,” Laurianna declared. She paused to see if her mother would start up a speech or insist that she go. Laurianna was a freshman at Versas High. Even though it was mid January, she was pretty nervous about starting in the middle of the semester and being behind. “Well that’s no way to start off your second semester in a new school” her mother exclaimed. She could hear her mother babbling about making new friends in the other room, but she was more focused on what she was going to wear on her first day. She had always dressed comfortably but still strived to keep up with the trends of her old classmates.
Why did I walk in my first day not fitting the dress code? No, my public suburban middle school enforced no formal dress code, but each of the cliques did. Jake needed just a big, black, cover-all raincoat to break into a wild laugh
8:35am. The door creaks, and my teacher’s eyes turn to tearing velvet. “Ven aquí, Cata,” ella dice. “Estás tarde otra vez.” But she knows about my mental abnormality (normality) so there’s no repercussion. I don’t respond to her until she points out that I’m out of dress code, to which I say, “Thank you. I like my shorts
A vocation is one's calling in life. We are called to many different areas that it almost seems hard to know which path is right to follow. This year is my junior year in highschool and I am already being pushed to think about my future and what I want my life to be like. A decision of this magnitude is extremely hard and daunting to make. How am I supposed to know what my true vocation is if I'm not even eighteen yet? There are a plethora of hobbies I love to do and activities I participate in, but which one is right for me? Which one brings me joy? I started out thinking about what I am good at. For as long as I can remember, I have always loved school. My mother used to say that I had the brain of an elephant because I could always remember details when nobody else could. Having that type brain made it easy to learn and succeed in school. I was never the athletic type. I tried every sport imaginable, but nothing ever stuck with me; I decided that school would be my sport. Every year, I tried my hardest to achieve the highest grades and every year it paid off. When I was ten, I started to get involved with Irish step dancing and I instantly fell in love. Everybody else either did ballet, tap, jazz, modern, or other dances, but nobody did Irish Step; it was my own thing. As the years past, I began to compete and move up in the ranks of competitive dancing. When I reached the championship level, I decided to stop and just dance for my own enjoyment and happiness. Although
Coming forth as a senior, whom has attended Miami Beach Senior High all four years, it is an outrage what school administration and staff is carrying out. Miami Beach Senior High has been known and valued for the lenient uniform policy which encourages comfortableness, self-expression and individuality. When a student is proposed a strict and restrictive uniform policy, they begin to feel striped of all individuality and freedom of expression. Students become anxious easier, constantly second guessing and feel uncomfortable being where they are.
On the February 14th, I attended the student success at Hennepin Technical College. I got there around 0800 and met up with some of my fellow classmates there. Also, since we got there early, and there was nothing to do beside the small tables and activity. Therefore, we decided to do some activity and went to some small tables. I was lucky enough to win candy from one of the table, get a chance to get massaged on the back, massage on the foot, and played a bowling video game in Wii. I asked us to take a group picture together as a group for memories and we did (picture is attached on the second page) but then there was some students that was busy doing other activity. Therefore, we just took the picture without them.
On October 31st 2014, I attended my best friend’s halloween party. We all had to dress up and arrive at her house at ten o’clock. This was the first non-birthday party I had ever attended and I was excited to finally be out of the house past nine o’clock. My best friend and I decided to get ready together. She chose to dress up as Marilyn Monroe and I as Daisy from The Great Gatsby. Our costumes were intricate and realistic. She wore the typical Marilyn Monroe white dress and a bright red lip; while I wore a gold tiered flapper dress with a jeweled and feathered headdress. By the time we were finished getting ready, the party was about to start. By eleven o’clock the party was finally getting started. The music was booming and everyone was dancing; when suddenly I received a text. It read, “I see you.” It was signed by someone named “JJ.” I didn’t think anything of it because it was Halloween and
The final section of this text is entitled: Purpose #5: You were made for a mission. It begins with Chapter 36: Made for a Mission, where Warren teaches that God is continually at work and desires us to join Him in that mission. All Christ-followers are to be representatives and lead others toward God and Christ. We, as part of this body, are to continually lead others to become believers.
One of the most controversial topics in the Christian community has been discussed over the centuries. If God is sovereign, where does man’s responsibility lay rest in it? If the bible confirms the sovereignty of God, then one must wonder how it relates to the human’s responsibility. John 24:17 states, “Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. One can take it to the extreme that free will presides and binds God into doing certain calls. The other side can take it to the extreme that God completely resides over everything so I don’t have to be obedient to him commanding me to proclaim the gospel and have a license to sin.
As a child and even as a teenager one tends to make dreams and set goals for life. On occasion these goals are far stretched and sometimes even fairy-tale like, we tend to see life through a rose-colored glass, not taking into account the many sidetracks life throws our way. At that stage in life our goals tend to be less focused and somewhat unreachable. However, the process of growing up, or maturing, tends organized and center our goals, we learn to make compromises and set goals for our goals. There are different types of goals, short term and long term. I have learned to separate the many goals I have into three main categories: family, professional and personal.
The alarm clock buzzed loudly beside my ear. Feeling like a gong that was being hit repeatedly was placed right beside my head. I sluggishly pulled myself out of my bed and dragged myself to my closet. The words, first day of school moaned ghastly in my head. Summer was uneventful and school was just going to be hell. I picked out an old, worn out flannel and a pair of jeans to wear. Not rushing at all, I struggled to put the raggedy clothes on. They smelt like horrendous lies and rumors. Exactly what this state and my school are built on.
Evangelism is a wide field of ministry that is captivating many, many ministers have been called into the field. It is one of the many fields we as believers are called into. We all have been given assignment before the beginning of time God knew what he would have us to do. Evangelist’s work in many different environments in their local community, nation, and abroad. We are being the hands and feet of Jesus. we should treat it as each and every person’s salvation is important to you.
The consideration of the purpose of life has been ongoing and is never-ending throughout the course of history. The question itself has caused many people to generate many different strong views and opinions based on traditional, ideological backgrounds, and religious outlooks. The deliberation about the meaning of life will never end since there is not one reassuring basic, general answer. Instead, examine the question in another way, like, “What is my purpose in life?” The purpose of life varies from one person to another because of “free will.” While some people believe that for every human, life is called to some divine duty by God, everyone has a different drive that is waiting to be discovered within themselves, and people must set
Saturday and Sunday went by fast. Vowing that God had cut off at least twelve hours off my weekend, Monday morning arrived. I had to be at the coliseum at nine a.m. I woke up at eight thirty on the dot. With no essential worries and not a care in the world what I looked like, I merely jumped out of bed and put my graduation dress, cap, and gown on. In six minutes flat I was ready to go. I made it out my room and past the mirror wall right before I was about to leave. Looking at myself I knew I looked unacceptable, but my mind could not lead me to care. Right before I could make it out the door my mom vented her words of refutation. “Where do you think you are going? You did not bother to brush your hair, wash your face nor take a shower.” Thinking quickly, I managed to use time as my excuse and scampered out the door to avoid any more questions.
My goal in life is to be a great friend and wife to my fiancé. An exceptional and admirable mother that teaches her children not just right and wrong, but how to be healthy, happy, successful, responsible adults who can do the same for their families. I don’t want to lose sight of who I am and the person I am meant to be in the process. All the while, enjoying every bit of life and making every moment count.
