I was talking to Miranda last night about her future. I asked her, “What do you plan on doing with your life?” She said, “I don’t know, but I’ve got plenty of time to figure that out!”
I had that same attitude when I graduated. The one thing I did know was, I wanted to continue playing football in college. After entering college I decided I wanted to be a history teacher and football coach. If you’ll notice in the comments made there was a lot of I and not much of the Lord!
After getting my degree I decided coaching wasn’t for me so I worked at Get -N-Go and Pepsi Cola for a while until I hurt my back! After the injury I started asking God what He wanted me to do and that’s when I realized He wanted me to enter the ministry. All during those years I never asked God for His direction which was a mistake!
It doesn’t matter if your young, middle aged or an old dog like me, we need to ask God for direction daily, for this is the wise thing to do! Ephesians 5:15-17, Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is!”
