Everyone has there Own Path

"Listen for God's voice in everything you do and 
everywhere you go; He's the one that will keep you on track."
 -Proverbs 3:6

All my life I've always felt like I'm on a journey or path that most people may not understand. 
I get a lot of people always asking me what are you doing now, are you married, where are you working, what college did you go to. My answer usually leaves people a little at loss for words or you get a reply of oh that's neat. The truth is I didn't go to college, I could have if I wanted but I never felt that it was the right thing for me. I didn't fill out one college application my senior year of high school, I have never even seen a SAT or ACT. I am not married, not engaged and I'm ok with that. I have been with Jeremy for as long as I can remember and I know he is committed to me (our story here) and we are waiting till we are ready. I just quit my full time job about a month ago, I felt in my heart that I was being called in a different direction.

Now when I say this I often get a confused looked or a long pause, 
most people think your suppose to go to college, meet your soul mate, get married, have babies and live happily ever after. I'm sure they think I am naive or "I don't live in the real world", but if you're not doing what you feel in your heart is right then I don't want to "live in the real world". 
If everyone's story was the same then what would we be the fun in that.

I believe God has something great planned for my life, 
I will have a fulfilled life full of what I was put on this earth to do.
If that's dumb then call me dumb.

I will trust in God to provide for me the things he is calling me to do. 
Yes I'm only 23 and I do admit at times I wish I did already have it all figured out or what I was suppose to do would just be plopped right in my lap. But that just must not be his plan.
Yes I was scared when I quit my job, it was my security, this was me and J's plan to save up for the house we've always wanted. 
It's so crazy to me though that I have never felt a more calming sense of peace for where I'm at,
I fell content and I feel sure that what I am doing is the right thing.

I must trust in God to give me the right answers.

"God desires for us to live with a deep contentment in our hearts, 
but we can only experience this when we embrace 
His plan for our lives."

  2. Loooove this! What looks crazy to some is just a walk of faith to the obedient, look at all the men/women of the Bible, God works in obedience not comfort zones!! Get it girl!
