  • Samantha

    I am a sophomore in college and I am still struggling on what I want to
    do with my life. I want to be somebody. I want to be somebody important.
    I feel like I am just going through the motions and I don’t want to do
    that anymore. I want to make a difference in the world somehow and I
    want Christ to shine though me in everything I do. I just do not know
    what I would be good at, or how to accomplish these dreams of mine. I don’t want to just go to college everyday, get a degree, and then get a job that pays decent, but I don’t fully enjoy. I
    don’t want to be disappointed in the future by the things I didn’t do. I
    just do not know where to begin or where I belong. I pray I find where I
    belong and trust that God will lead me where I need to be and that all
    my dreams can come true someday.

    • Samantha, the really good news is that God knows you by heart. He’s already been to the future. He created you for a purpose. As you seek Him with your whole heart He will reveal those purposes to you step by step. And here’s the even better news. Everything you need to know about seeking God is found in His Word. Immerse yourself in what He says about you and what He says about how things work in His kingdom. Surrender everything to Him, including your very heart and soul, and you will become exactly the “somebody” He created you to be. That’s the only way to live the abundant life Christ offers us through intimately knowing Him and following Him. I really think you’d enjoy “Victim of Grace”. In that book I share personally how I had dreams that were squashed and how God accomplished His purposes in me and through me in ways I never expected. I hope you get a chance to read it.

    I would have to agree with Samantha. I’ve been out of school and working for the past 6 years and am starting to feel like there isn’t much purpose to my life apart from going to work, going home and then doing the same thing again the next day.
    I’ve read your book “Victim of Grace” and must admit that it helped me more than i realised at the time.
    I have finally started to trust God with every aspect of my life and I have noticed that I have been so much happier than what I have been in a really long time.
    I want to thank you soo much for all your books. I love them and am still reading some of them that I have just bought. I really can’t wait for the next book in the Christy and Todd series.

    • That’s awesome, Stacey. Trusting God completely is the only way to experience the fullness of His plan for our lives. It makes me smile to hear that “Victim of Grace” was a help and encouragement to you.

    I have dreams but terrified to let go of that “safe harbor”. Hope to do some things this spring.

  • Jodie

    Yes!! That’s exactly how I feel at the moment. In the last 6-12 months I have felt God’s call to do something, only to have them squashed. I’m still fighting this and am almost at the point where I have NO idea what God wants for me at the moment

    • Keep trusting in the Lord with ALL your heart, Jodie! His ways are definitely not our ways. They are quite mysterious.
