What am I destined to be?

Do you ever feel like you aren't fulfilling your destiny? The feeling that there is something that just isn't quite right? The fact that no matter what you do, you still have that feeling of unease deep deep inside you. That you pray when you wake up tomorrow you will have more direction that you had the day before.

What am I destined to be? What is my true purpose in life? Am I destined to wear a white coat and help patients on a medical level or am I destined to truly help people on a much deeper level? To inspire or guide? To motivate or encourage? To lead or be taught? What am I supposed to be doing? Am I even directing my life in the right direction?

What did God have planned for me when he created me? Am I doing everything I can today to help achieve that purpose in my future? Perhaps I am veering off course like so many of us tend to do.

Out of all of the questions listed above there is only one answer.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all ways acknowledge him and he will make your path straight.

That is one of the most beautiful things about God. You can put all your worries and problems in his hands and he will take care of them for you. You just have to be patient enough to wait for his answer whether it is what you were expecting or not. Sometimes we may feel like he is not answering our prayers, but he always does and he is always there. Just because we do not see the answer we were expecting, it may just mean that he has far better plans for us. Take time out of your day to turn your problems and worries over to him.


  1. I've been asking myself these very same questions alot lately! I found youversion bible app on my droid (iphone has it too) and I'm working my way through the ReThink Life: 40 day devo. You might want to check it out too, has some great food for thought! :) Happy Thursday!

  2. You might as well have been writing that directly to me, my friend!! I hate to tell you, but apparently getting older doesn't make these darn questions go away. Love this blog--thanks for the encouragement!
