clarity...

I keep trying to figure out what I want to do with my life (even though everyone keeps telling me I have plenty of time to make a decision). What is my calling? Why does God have me on this earth? We all have a purpose... and God have given us everything we need in order to become everything He wants us to be. I'm praying that God makes it clear to me soon. Pray for me y'all. I need discernment and patience.

One thing I do know is...
"I would rather do something I love and be poor than get paid $1,000/day and be unhappy."
-D

...I spoke these words to my best friend a while ago and I'm sticking to it.

GREAT words to stick to!!!! My very 1st semester of college, i was a "nursing" major and I simply wanted to do it because i THOUGHT it would be a quick degree and easy way for me to have a good/stable job right after college. so i figured i'd go back to school "later" for psychology once i was already making money since i'd be in school FOREVER! lol...but i was too unhappy putting off what i really wanted/was meant to do....A teacher asked "what would you do if no one paid you"???....When i said, i'd listen to people's problems because so many people simply want to be "HEARD" and letting things 'out' is another way to 'let it go' (i wanted to help people let go of any/everything keeping them from Living "the God life"!)....the next semester i started on the road to becoming that person!!!! so idk, ask your self a series of questions, pray, & Listen to God as He guides you in the right direction!!

I pray God gives you favor and strength as you pursue HIS purpose for your life! :) JEREMIAH 29:11-13 ....it was my "GO-TO" scripture my entire time in college...I live life day by day Knowing I have an EXPECTED END (there might be a few surprises along the way...but the end is destined to be GREAT!!)
