Purpose

As with everyone else in the world I struggle with purpose. Why am I here sort of question. I know the right answer is that I am here to spread the fame of my God to everyone I come in contact with and represent His love to others. I understand that part of it, but where I struggle is where (physical location) am I supposed to be to do that.

I spent seven years at the B&GC investing in the lives of kids and their parents but at the end of my time there I was miserable. All I wanted to do was leave so I did.

Now I have spent the last 2 and a half years learning the construction business and have had a good time and I enjoy what I do and the biggest difference from the club is I enjoy who I do it for.

So if I like my job and I like my boss, why do I feel unsure about if this is the correct life path for me?

So My professional life has come down to these questions.

1. Am I following God in my chosen profession?
2. Does what I am doing for money match what my heart tells me to do?
3. If not what's next?
4. Am I just in a rut and over thinking this?

So I guess what I am saying is that if anyone in the blogging world has the answers to all of life's questions let me know, after we get a handle on our lives we can write a book sell it at Lifeway and make a ton of cash, and then we would have to work any more. Maybe that is the answer all along.

I'm kind of feeling myself in the same dilemma lately, so if you find the answer, be sure to share it with us!

oh and if any bloggers have the answer, please run it by me first. ;)

bradbynum when god plants a seed in your soul you might be able to keep it down for a while, but eventually it will grow and bloom.

I have no answer but feel the same way. I think a lot of people feel this way. You're not alone.

More people read your blog than you think.
