God’s purpose

God’s purpose for my life. I used to think that God’s purpose for my life was to work with children either in a daycare or in a home. I thought that for a long time. Mainly because that was the only kind of job I had ever had. I was pretty good at it…but was it really my calling in life? God never blessed me with my own children, and that is okay. I just recently realized, you know what? I don’t really like working with children. I might be good at it, but I don’t like it. So what is my calling? Well God has revealed it to me, I think. I think his will is for me to become a writer. My English 1 class really changed my life a few years back. My teacher, I will never forget Professor Joshua Scott, he changed my life. He saw potential in me to become a writer. So did my creative writing professor, although he didn’t make such an impression on me. But Josh did. Do you know how? I was such a perfectionist that I stressed myself out to get a 100% on everything. Most things I came very close to that percentage, but in many meetings with him to go over my essays, he told me I didn’t have to worry. That I was a great student. That I didn’t have to be perfect, only try my best. He always believed in me. He always thought that I was great at writing. I got an A in his class and he even recommended me to be a tutor in the English department. Since then I have moved to Arizona and it has been a couple of years, but I have never forgotten him. I even keep in touch with him every now and then. He taught me that I have a gift. He taught me to believe in myself. Now, I kinda still do doubt myself, but all I have to think about is his words. Since then, I have been drawn to writing. I feel that is where my heart truly lies. So I changed my major from Child Education to English. Now, I know that I am going to struggle with that major because there is a lot of reading and analyzing literature with English and I have difficulty with the reading aspect of English. But I am up for the challenge. I know if God wants me to be a writer, all I have to do is pursue it. Now, I am not exactly good on the editing side of writing. I still need some help in that department, but my mom has been helping me. She is good at that sort of thing. So there you have it, I am going to pursue a career in writing.
