Day 1: What Should I Do With My Life?
How do we know we’re on the path that God wants us to be on?
How do we know that we are doing what we are meant to do?
How do we know that we are becoming who God created us to be?
The truth is that we can never fully know.
However, through learning to trust ourselves and God there are ways that we can listen, feel, and accept that God is taking us where we are meant to be…
It is extremely normal, and even expected, to be a young adult and have no idea what you want to do with your life.
Anxiety and stress can set in when you don’t know if you are on the path God wants you to be on, but there are a couple things to remember that can help you find peace…
(1) We are all called to one general purpose – to know, love, and serve God. This is an important foundation for everything in life. Treat this truth as your north star and try to make whatever else you do follow that purpose
(2) Avoid things that are going to be a hindrance to your holiness. The number one goal is to be holy
(3) Talk to counselors, parents, friends, and co-workers for advice
(4) Have an active prayer life so you are able to talk to God and discern what He is calling you to do. Trust your prayer. Don’t second guess yourself all of the time. Be aware that you will not be 100% sure of God’s will, but give your best shot to whatever you decide to go with.
