I may not have a paying job yet, but I can choose to take on tasks before me as I am able. I may not be able to go to college yet, but I can choose to read and study every chance I get. I may not be able to reach my dream of helping special needs children yet, but I can work towards it.
I know God will not call me somewhere without providing a way for me to get there. He will not lead me to do something without making me capable.
I am confident that if I am making the most of my time and my gifts, whether or not I reach my “dream”, I am right where God wants me to be and I will go where He wants me to go.
This is true success.
Even if I never reach my dream, I have succeeded.
Even if I never fully understand God’s desire for my life, I know it will come about.
Even if I never fully understand His goals, as long as He reigns in my life, they will be achieved.
I challenge everyone reading this to take on this task.
It takes denying yourself, taking up your cross, and living for Christ. It takes giving up not some, but all selfish desires. It takes complete surrender. But when you are in perspective, remembering that this life is only a small portion of our everlasting life with God, it is worth it.
