Random Thoughts Tuesday

Many plans are in a man's mind, but it is the Lord's purpose for him that will stand. Proverbs 19: 21

O LORD, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things, even purposes planned of old [and fulfilled] in faithfulness and truth. Isaiah 25: 1

 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
Jeremiah 29: 11

Lately, I have thought a lot about purpose.  I truly desire to fulfill whatever purpose God has for my life.  If I am being honest, I sometimes struggle with knowing what my true calling is.  The day to day grind of earning a living really makes me question my calling sometimes but what always gets me through tough days at work is knowing that something much bigger, and much greater is in store for me.  I know I have a greater purpose than the day to day routine of the corporate grind.  I have been listening to God and he is helping me everyday to exercise my many talents.  These talents I am confident will one day help me fulfill even bigger entrepreneurial dreams and eventually will allow me to work 100% for myself.  Don't get me wrong.  I am very blessed and grateful for my current career.  If it were not for the schedule, I would probably be more content as I love helping students and a make a good living doing it.  With that said. my job today is only that.  A job.  I mere chapter of a very exciting story.  The same is true for you if you aspire to do bigger things in your life!

God knows your heart and talents and he reveals our purpose to us often.  It is up to us if we hear it or not.  Sometimes we are not ready to hear it.  Other times, we are simply afraid of the unknown.  If you do not feel like you are fulfilling your true purpose in life, I encourage you to step out on faith and follow your dreams.  God will make a way.
