I recently had an interesting conversation with a friend. I never realized that we were so indifferent to certain things in life. I’ve finally analyzed this conversation…just because you don’t understand the purpose of one’s life does not mean their course in life is evil or wrong.
I shared with her that I wanted to work for a movie studio.
Her response was: That career path is not of God. It puzzled me! You see, some christians are sometimes too deep for their own being. I can have a relationship with God and work for a movie studio. If that’s the case why does any Christian works.
My analogy: we live on this earth and in order to survive this journey in most cases it will consist of working. My working for a movie studio has nothing to do with my spiritual connection with God.
I have always had the desire to be in that field (not necessarily an actress, but if the opportunity arise I’ll happily accept the offer) to work behind the scenes. Working behind the scenes will still make me apart of any production created.
What she fail to realize is that we all are different and uniquely made. Your desires may not be like mine and vise versa. I like a Range Rover you may like an Explorer, but that does not make your choice evil or wrong.
“My point is what’s for me is for me”.
So many years I have allowed people to make decisions and choices for me and now that I’m older and wiser I feel I’ve missed out on so many opportunities, because I did not make the choices I desired.
Now I have taken full charge of my life and others are having a hard time adjusting to my choices and for some reason feels that I think I’m better than them. No! I have just chosen to launch and fly to higher heights.
“I have left the nest”.
Bottom line: If you desire to be an actress, baker, chef, manager etc. the choice is yours. Don’t let others dictate your life or discourage you from pursuing your hearts desires. You choose today your life path, it is never too late. Selah!!!
