What Are You Going to Do With Your Life?

Ask any guy or girl that and you'll often hear "I don't know" or something ambiguous. How about yourself? Do you know what you want to do with your life? Perhaps you don't know the specific thing that you want to do. But writing out a vision and creating one will help make that happen.

So where do you start? Look at your gifts and talents that God gave you and use those. Go do something. Your heart follows actions. Don't follow your heart. Your heart will lead you to destruction.
"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. ~ Matthew 6:21" Put your money, time, and energy into where you want to go and generally your heart will follow. ^_^

That's a good point Daniel. So often young people are told to "follow your heart" or "just go where your heart leads you," and at first it seems like good advice. It sounds romantic, passionate, and courageous, but it's weak and shallow, not to mention the fact that our hearts' desires are not always God's desires for us.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Hmm, that's a good point Daniel. If you had asked me a while back, I would be in the 'I don't know' crowd. I still think that I'd be in the 'I think I have an idea' crowd, so I've got a ways to go. Writing it down is a good idea. Do you mean for really long term (like 20, 30, or 40 years) or more short term, (where do I think God wants me in 10 years)?
