While deciding if I should be a preacher or a teacher I kept asking “What is God’s will for my life?” If you’re wondering the same thing (not if you should be a preacher or a teacher, but rather “what is the will of God is in my life today?”), then you’ve come to the right place.

How do you see God in the darkest times of your life? Maybe you’re coping with cancer, chemotherapy, chronic pain, constant suffering. Maybe your child is ill or lost, your husband gone, your hopes and dreams destroyed. Maybe you’ve been left at the alter, or maybe you walked away from a marriage or relationship and now you regret it.
Surrendering your worries and cares to God seems like it should be easy, but it’s actually quite hard. It’s like learning how to stop worrying what people think – much easier said than done!
You want to make or do something new in your life – but you don’t want it to be “all about you.” How do you listen to God’s voice and create something new for His glory? These tips are inspired by God’s gorgeous tabernacle in Exodus 25 and my daily struggle to write “She Blossoms Through the Bible.”
How do you blossom into who God created you to be if you don’t know why you’re here or what He created you to do? You want to follow Jesus and listen for the Holy Spirit’s still small voice — and you definitely don’t want to fall asleep like the disciples did in Mark 14! — but you’re struggling.
Maybe you once knew the purpose of your life but you lost it. Or perhaps you never figured out why God created you or what you should do in this world. You want to find your life purpose, but you don’t know how.
My last article about trusting Jesus didn’t answer the “Why is God making life hard for me?” question. When God puts you through hard times, you aren’t just struggling to trust God with your future. You wonder why He is causing those hard times to begin with.
You know you should trust God’s timing with all your heart, mind, soul and strength…but you’re confused. Why is life so hard, relationships painful, work difficult, and the daily routine so boring?
