What to Do When Your Calling Feels Like Too Much

Our callings give our lives a beautiful purpose, but sometimes they push us past our limits. That’s when we feel like Moana, screaming into the void, “Why did you bring me here? I’m not the right person. You have to choose someone else. Choose someone else. Please.” What do we do then?
