Day Seven: Vocation, Vocation, Vocation

See what I did there? :) But really, what is our vocation in life? On Sunday night, at a bible study of sorts here on campus, our speaker spoke about the future, and what we are supposed to be doing with our lives. I think what really hit me was that we need to stop looking so far into the future that we fast forward past everything that is happening now. If we keep focusing on what we are going to do with our lives and where we are going to be in 10 years or so, we are going to miss everything that is happening in the present day. Our vocation in life, first and foremost, is that we are to love our neighbors. We need to keep both feet in the present, but just an eye on the future and trust that God will get us there in His own way and by His own plan. God's blessings, everyone!

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11
