I have a heart for helping people out of modern slavery and human trafficking i know that. But how are we supposed to know that we know that we know that God is calling us to do something. I have never felt God calling me to do something do you just feel it in your heart and then you know. I’m not a new christian i have been saved since i was 7 and my dad was a pastor up untill i was 12 or 13 but i am not sure if i have ever heard God call me to do something. How do we know?

God rarely, if ever, has told me to get involved with anything. I’ve heard his voice at other times, but not that way. God lays things on our hearts, like he has laid saving people from human trafficking on yours. Research and try to find ways you can help and trust God that things will work out in a way where you can help and glorify him. 🙂

I have a similar calling, so I can kind of relate. My calling is to help child brides and young mothers both in the US and abroad. I’d like to open an adoption agency specifically for young wives from other countries, but I’m still researching the details. My ideal plan is to help them integrate into American society and become normal girls, while also staying with their children. =D I would say that you know after having a desperate longing in your heart for something, sometimes for a really long time, and then trying to live it ous

God has a plan for you! But sometimes I think he’s okay with certain choices that you will make, for example, if you are deciding between two college majors, and both of them could help you glorify God, you should pray about it. But that doesn’t mean that if you pick one of the two majors that God will be mad. Prayer is a big part of making good decisions. For some people, they can wait for decades before their dreams come true, while for some it’s only a matter of weeks.
I suggest you research about missionary Amy Carmichael, she’s very inspiring: http://www.christianity.com/church/church-history/church-history-for-kids/amy-carmichael-helped-the-helpless-11634859.html

I had similar experiences in the way that I was very passionate about something or I had a strong desire to do something and like you, I didn’t know whether I was truly called to do it. What helped me through it was, first of all, pray, and second of all, just doing my research, thinking about it for a while, talking to others about it, etc. By doing all that, I ended up with this feeling in my heart telling me yes or no, which to me was God’s way of talking to me. I’ve done amazing things by doing all of that, like volunteering abroad in Peru, starting ballet, and choosing a great school where to do my student teaching. But I’ve also let some things go where I felt a no in my heart, like taking a semester abroad in university, and taking a year working abroad. So pray and really think about it, and you’ll get your answer in some way.
