Where is my place in this world?

myplaceinthisworldHave you ever wondered if what you are doing is what you are supposed to be doing?  Is it what you think God had planned for you?  Do you wish you could be doing something else?

I have spent well over 17 years in the Information Technology field.  I have held many positions, which has given me a very diverse background in the field.  I have never claimed to be an expert and I never will.  The field is growing way too quickly for anyone to claim they know it all.  I know just enough, maybe a little more than enough, to get around.  When I started my journey of faith the desire to continue in the Information Technology field began to change.  I guess you could say my heart and faith were starting to change who I really wanted to become.

In the past the need for wanting more, having more, success and the all mighty dollar kept me going from job to job. It would seem about every three years I would change jobs, increase my responsibilities and make more money.  Never once thinking I could lose it all at any time.  And just like that I did.

Now the real test of faith comes.  Can I get through this?  Is my faith strong enough to trust that God will get me/us through?  During the process I questioned God all the time.  Not wanting to let go of the control and finding out I wasn’t in control in the first place was a real eye opener.  I can look back on it now and see God was always with me.  But during it, well I sometimes I thought God was nowhere to be found.

Today we are comfortable.  Bills are getting paid.  We have food on the table and a roof over our heads.  College graduation has come and gone.  Working two part-time jobs and trying to make additional money on the side (through website development) has been good.  It’s not exactly where I thought I would be today and it’s not where I think I will be in five years from now, but for now; it’s just where I am.

Where is my place in this world? I am still trying to figure that out.  I trust when God is ready for me to know what’s next, it will be revealed.  As for now my place is where ever God wants me to be.  For now it’s right where I am at!

Luv luv,

 

Julie
