Key Bible Verse: The Lord will work out his plans for my life. (Psalm 138:8)
Dig Deeper: Psalm 138
In college I went along with [my parents’ plan for me] and majored in financial planning and accounting. Still, I never felt fully committed to that plan. There was always the sense that God was calling on me to follow a different path.
[Way back in junior high, I’d given] talks about my disabilities to my classmates. They responded to my words. I touched something in them, and God lit the sparks of a passion he’d placed within me. Evangelism and inspiration became my greatest passions.
Speaking about my love of God and the blessings in my life, including my disabilities and the strength they have given me, allows me to serve others. It’s given my life a purpose, one that I believe God created for me.
Maybe you haven’t identified where your talents and interests lie. It’s not uncommon to try one thing or another before identifying your life’s calling.
I encourage you to identify whatever it is that fulfills you and engages your gifts and energy. Pursue that path, not for your own glory or enrichment, but to honour God and to make a contribution.
