I am going through the most craziest transition in my life (no, I’m not getting married!).
I am graduating high school, and in not too long, I’ll also be moving to California.
Talk about a change in direction!
Never have I ever thought that I’d be moving all the way across the states.
To be honest it was a pretty big surprise/shock for me.
I thought, well, I just thought that I’d stay here at home for a period of time.
To learn a bit more about myself and fully seek within me what my true calling is, in my life.
Little did I know, that I already knew!
It was right there in front of me this whole time!
Maybe, with you guys, you have been searching and searching for, “the meaning of life” or, “your purpose in life”, maybe you even think, “how do I fit in this, big, big, world?”.
Here’s the answer straight out and quick.
When you look at yourself in the mirror, what do you see?
When people are asked what’s their favorite quality of you, what do they say?
When you use your talents, have you ever really thought what they were? Every single one? The steps it took to refine or sharpen them?
Know your answers to these questions.
Ask the people who are always around you what they see in you, the thing that most people don’t have, but you do. The thing(s) that make you unique in this world.
First step, is to know who you are.
Second step, is to believe who you are.
Third, sum it all up.
Do what you love and love what you do.
I believe in God.
I believe that He has placed the passion in our hearts for our calling.
We may think we want to do one thing we desire and have dreamed for, and that what God asks for us is too much, but that’s not true.
How do I know its not?
Because I live that life.
I’m living in His lifestyle.
When I was little I’ve always wanted to be a veterinarian.
I still do, but then music came into my life.
There was/is something about being able to sing and play an instrument.
There’s something that releases into the atmosphere when you strum a chord pattern and sing out your feelings.
I found out that people have made a living worshipping God and that it’s possible to do what I love, for Him.
That is an example of doing what you love and love what you’re doing. It can be life changing.
There’s deliverance in walking in God’s plan and His way.
You learn how to sacrifice things you love for Him and His purpose He’s given you.
You end up living a life full of grace and stability that turns into a life of faith.
Living a life of faith is extremely difficult.
We go through tests and trials.
The thing that keeps you going is your devotion to Christ.
It helps you strive to your goal.
A thing can help you, and something you should know is that, God’s love never runs out.
It’s not limited, fake, forced, etc.
His love is everlasting, eternal, relentless, and beautiful. It never fails.
I can go on and on about His qualities, but I will go back to my point.
I’m gonna wrap this up quick.
You are, beautiful, amazing, strong, fearless, and one of a kind.
You have a purpose for your life.
You have a special part to take into this world.
God has created you as a special piece in this puzzle.
Take a time of your day to just stop what you’re doing, sit down, close your eyes, relax, and just ask God what is His plan for your life and what step does He want you to take first, in order to start moving in that direction.
Trust me, you don’t want to waste half your life pursuing some “life goal” that was just a superficial desire and not what God has called you to do.
We only live once.
