Called

"I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness." -Isaiah 42:6-7

Most of us think a great deal about why we are here, what our purpose is in life. My generation, self included, articulates (read: whines) about this often, as we jump from job to job, trend to trend, fad to fad, attempting to be happy.

If you seek purpose in life, I imagine you could do a lot worse than Isaiah 42 - no matter where you are, in full-time ministry or no.
