I’m in a very transitional season of life. I’m in my last year of my undergraduate college career, which means after Spring semester, I’ll be done with school and looking to find a career. I know that career will be something in youth ministry, but I don’t know where God wants me yet. I can stay in my current church, where I know the culture, the context and the students, or God could call me somewhere else to break me out of my comfort zone.
As a bit of a control freak, I’m not a big fan of not being in control of my life. Despite this, I have given my future completely over to God, and I’ve thought that there are 2 things that could happen over the next year: 1) God will lead me in a particular direction with clarity, or 2) I will need to make a decision on my own and glorify God through that decision.
In my mind, this mindset was HUGE. For someone who like to be in control of things, this not knowing where my life is headed for the next year is a big deal. So for me to not worry about it seemed like a big step for me…
…until 2 days ago.
God really opened my eyes and showed me that I’m still not thinking big enough. I’ve opened myself up to his plan for my life, but I was still subconsciously putting a limit on what I would let him do. I had a mold that I wanted God to pour into, but God wanted to break that mold.
Question: What are you thinking big about that you could let God make even bigger?
