When the “American Dream” Isn’t Enough

The “American Dream”:¬†Go to college, get a job, have a family, retire, and…die.

I’ve been fed this way of living my entire life. I know I have the talent to do that, I have many talents that could be turned into a very well paying job. I could go to college, get an amazing job, and then have a family. I could have a very easy life.

But that life isn’t for me. I’ve tried to head in that direction, but I never feel fulfilled. Since I was about 16-years-old I knew what I wanted to do and I’m tired of ignoring God’s calling on my life. It made me miserable – but when I started to head in the direction of His will I felt a joy I hadn’t felt in a long time. I was finally headed to the best place for my soul.

Sometimes the “American Dream” isn’t for everyone. Sometimes there is a different calling. One that calls us in a direction we never thought we’d be going.
