Hi Amy
How do I establish my Christian identity absent a clear calling?
For added context to the question, the parable of the bags of gold in Matthew 25:14-30 terrifies me as I can somewhat relate to the man given the one bag.
Thanks in advance!

That is a tricky question as I don’t know you personally - your identity is first and foremost in Christ. You have the right starting place! My encouragement would be to seek the Lord for calling and to trust him to show you in the right time. Meanwhile get on with what he has given you to do here and now. Fulfil Matt 28 with your work colleagues, family, neighbors and friends all the while asking the Lord if he has anything more for you to do. Ask others to pray for you and try to lay even small decisions before him in prayer.
