Good day to you all. I wanted to ask, how is that some can so fervently and with so much certainty say that a vocation is his/her calling? Like to be married, in the religious life, a doctor, etc.? I wish I had that much discernment. When I ask, people say to look at your interests and skills that God has blessed you with. Think about your passions and goals in life.
Certainly wisdom, I thank God that I heard these words. But what about external factors? For me, yeah, I could be incredibly passionate about going into Computer Science. But what about my mother who wants a doctor? It's in the 4th commandment to honor your father and mother. I have no problems with being a doctor. But I really want to know what God wants me to do.
So... How do you discern what God's purpose for you is?
