I am somewhat in the middle of a “quarter life crisis.” I have always thought how good it must be for others who have always known exactly what they wanted to do/be when they grew up, while I struggled to make sense of what I was put here on earth for. Like the disciples then who had yet to comprehend God’s grand design, I am still struggling to understand now my part in bringing it about. Having children has given me some clarity as I recognize that my foremost role at the moment is to bring them up to be loving, compassionate individuals who are able to realize their potential while serving God and community. A question, however, remains to be answered – what do I do with the “Atty.” He has blessed me with, and how does it figure in my present calling?
How about you? Are you facing some crossroads or are you in the midst of soul searching yourself? As we continue to contemplate on our life purpose and on whether our current actions stir us closer to or veer us further away from it, let us pray for spiritual maturity to be able to recognize the truth when the Holy Spirit reveals it to us.
