You Are God’s and so is Your Career

I once had a friend who wanted to be a police officer. He did all the right things, worked jobs to gain experience, and even got a bachelors in Criminal Justice with hopes that he would be able to have his police officer training paid for.

His heart was great, and the job he desired to do was needed but whenever the testing or application process came up, something else that was way more important came up on that exact same day at the exact same time he was supposed to go in.

After months of being stuck and no where close to his career he said to me, “Nothing is going right. It never seems to ever go my way”  I looked at him intently and gently said, “It’s going God’s way though.”

This world seems to hold this stigma that if we do the “right” things and take the “right” steps then we will get to where WE want to go but it’s never about us.

Our life is Gods. It’s as simple as that.

It’s okay to have dreams and goals. The desire my friend had wasn’t wrong. It was a very sacrificial and honorable career he wanted but obviously God had a different one in mind.

If something isn’t going right, ask God what you are doing wrong. God guides the steps of the righteous {Psalm 37:23} and He will guide you too. You just have to step out and let Him.

      Bonnie,
      I wish I had that answer. My friend and I lost touch when I moved to a different state. Last I heard he was still working for the county Jail as a guard trying to get his foot in the door. We had this conversation about two years ago. You can keep him in your prayers. Whenever he crosses my mind I pray for him too.

     Hi Lovelle Gerth-Meyers, I feel comforted when I received your e-mails.  I send them to my daughter as she is not a follower of Jesus.   I once wrote you to be careful when jogging in non congested area even if you go with your beloved dog.  Please, be careful.   In Christ, Sylvia

      Sylvia,
      Thank you for your sweet words! I am so glad you find comfort through my writing. You warmed my heart tonight. I didn’t get your email about running but thank you for the reminder! I try to be careful. I typically avoid running if it’s not daylight (at least outside). 😊

    I am in awe of your post today. I don’t want to bite you with details but if you read the text I sent my husband today …. I’d swear this article was written for me.

    I have invested a lot of time, energy and money in my current career path and have been met with insane obstacles ….

    I will certainly pray differently moving forward as well as trust God with whatever His will is!

      Zabrina,
      Sorry it took so long to reply back! Your sweet comment made my heart so happy. I am so glad this could help. I wrote this because I am in the exact same boat lol. I have to remember that it’s not about me, it’s all about Him. I will be praying for God’s direction and clarity in what he wants you to do!
