I’m reading a book right now called Second Calling: Finding Passion and Purpose for the Rest of Your Life by Dale Hanson Bourke.

Maybe the fact that I’ve said for years that I still don’t know what I want to be when I “grow up” has caused me to stop and ponder my life direction.

Maybe it’s the fact that I’m in that mid-life stage of life that drew me to this title when I was walking through a bookstore one day.

Maybe it’s the reality that I long to feel a fire deep within me when I wake up in the morning and head out the door to face whatever God is calling me to do on any particular day.


I want that.


I need that.

The rest of my life.

That’s all I have left.

So turning each page of this book ignites something in me…………………..

As if two pieces of wood are being rubbed together and sparks are beginning to fly.

I’m excited about the thought of a second calling.

I’m not sure what that looks like, but I am ready to be revived!

If you find yourself sitting at a crossroads in your life journey, consider reading Second Calling.

Jeremiah 6:16

Stand at the crossroads and look;

ask for the ancient paths,

ask where the good way is, and walk in it,

and you will find rest for your souls.
