True Success

Even though I'm not graduating from college just yet, people are asking, "What are you planning on doing?"  "You need to go get a master's now so you won't loose the rhythm you're in now..."  The short answer is get a job.  Just because I have a few limitations doesn't mean I can't be a productive member of society.  It just takes me a little longer to do some things.

Success for me is not measured in dollars and cents or degrees.  To me, success is waking up every morning with a sense of purpose.  I'm here on this earth for so much more than to just do a job.  I'm supposed to spread God's love wherever I go, which is why I can be content not pursuing a master's degree right now.  If I'm so busy filling my schedule with lots of "stuff", I may miss an opportunity to spread God's love to someone in the workplace.  In short, my life isn't about doing something just because someone else thinks it's a good idea.  I'm more committed to God than I've ever been.  Yes, I will continue to write.  That's part of the talent God has blessed me with, and I'm determined not to waste it!

 I'm looking into some online options for master's degree, but I'm in no hurry to do anything.  I want to be doing what God wants me to do where He wants me to do it.  I've been spending a lot of time praying and listening to His voice, because I know I am nothing without Him.  

I just wanted to write this post to let everyone know they don't have to be pressured by people.  Let God direct you.  He has never let me down yet, even when I was confused and doubting the dream I had in my heart.
