Do not be foolish but learn what the Lord wants you to do (Ephesians 5:17).

We have a specific design with a specific purpose for a specific amount of time.  We were created to bring glory to God.  It is not so important as to the vocation, rather it is how we are able to utilize what we were given to accomplish that for which we were created.

If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God.  If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.  To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever.  Amen (1 Peter 4:11).

May your journey through life lead you to the vocation the Lord designed you for and may you always bring glory to Him.
