You know, some people find their life’s soul mate in high school and they know as teenagers what they want to be for the rest of their life.
They set out on their course, stick with it, and move ahead without looking back or thinking about “what might have been.” I’m not one of them. I suppose you aren’t either. What is God’s will for my life? We know this question can be asked a thousand different ways. It can apply to the next two minutes or to the rest of our lives. In my own search for God’s will, I’ll admit this right off the bat: I’ve had many arguments with God over what was, or wasn’t, His will for my life. I’d plead with Him, “Why can’t I have this wife, college, job, house, friend, fun, or money? Could you give me a little direction, please?” As you’ll see in my book, God’s Will for the Rest of Us, God patiently worked with me—just as He’ll do with you. Although it took a while, He showed me that His plan was much richer—and wiser—than any I might have cooked up on my own. It was difficult and challenging, yes, but His plan made me a much stronger instrument for His purposes and put me in a much better position to receive His blessings.
