I’ve really been struggling lately with what I want to do with my life…actually, what God wants me to do with my life. I’ve realized that I don’t want a career in politics–which has surprised me, and everyone who knew me in college as the crazy, politically active girl. But I wouldn’t have known that if I had never tried it out!
I’ve been praying for guidance, for some hint from the Lord of what it is He has for me. I’ve known for years that I want to be a missionary, but until I pay off my student loans, that can’t happen. And that’s okay!
So I’ve been trying to figure out what job would allow me to use my God-given gifts/abilities/skills, while also engaging my passions…and I finally figured it out today (with God’s help, of course).
I want to plan/lead short-term mission trips!
Where else can I use my skills of event planning, photography, music/worship leading, while also doing what I’m most passionate about–serving others, telling others about Jesus, discipling students, traveling?! I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before! Leading the team to New Orleans last year was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. To spend my life leading others onto the mission field would be absolutely fabulous!
So, now the prayer continues, as I have to find someone to pay me to do this. 🙂 APU has a full-time missions coordinator (actually, a whole office dedicated to that), so I know the job exists… 🙂
Lord–lead me wherever you want me to go…
