A good purpose

Sometimes in life, while obeying our highest sense of God’s direction, we feel led to take a huge leap into the unknown.

After working happily for several years in an office, but without a great deal of personal fulfillment, I was having lunch with a friend and she asked me, “What do you want to be doing?” I was surprised to hear my own answer, “I want to direct theater.” I had been involved with a number of productions over the years, so the idea of taking on a directorial role wasn’t too far-fetched, but certainly a long, long way off from where I was career-wise at that moment. 

As the months rolled by, the idea of enrolling in graduate school became clearer. I found a nearby university that turned out to be a perfect fit, and I started classes. During those months I was working and praying to be led to the right place after I graduated, to have the right motives, and to allow God to direct me in each step.
