Today I found myself walking in Lake Hills GreenBelt Park, in Bellevue, Washington. Getting used to my new camcorder, a Kingear, that I was able to buy from donations for this site: thanks, you’re awesome, guys!
You really help me progress, giving me hope and making me think that people will read my blog in the first place. I pray for your continued success writing, and in whatever else you do!
But what I was thinking about in the last several days is how I may use my counseling skills in a new venue, to earn a living in a way I want to, that I feel I am created to do.
Of course I am in prayer about this daily and I feel God has led me to create this blog. Writing has always been a strength and something I’ve liked doing. My reports as a Mental Health Clinician and Social Worker always got me pats on the back. Those were what I was given credit for the most and the most consistently. Some of us are writers, some are talkers, and some paint, some create music or sing with beautiful voices. We are not created all the same and so finding my way to a life led by God is what I enjoy praying about and seeking.
Finding our avocation, doing something that suits us and earning a living from it is what I’m very interested in learning about now. I don’t want to do the work I’ve been doing, that’s for sure. It’s boring and it does not use my skills.
Why have I gone off my path and for so long? When did I decide to be worldly, working in a worldly field, depending on mankind to tell me what was right and wrong? Why let man tell me what I should do for a living to be valuable, or successful in life? We’re not all made to be accountants, ya know, or doctors, or lawyers, officers of the law, or school teachers.
God is developing me; I know this. He has a way of letting Himself be known to those who love Him, seeking Him out every day.
So in my video, the link is posted above, I talk with God while discussing with you out loud why I don’t want to work in the Mental Health field any more. Even with better pay, I don’t feel it’s the right match for me. I have thought about this before and even created a little video here where I talk about not wanting to go on in working in Mental Health. I may have said some of the same things, I don’t know – it was months ago. Where we belong in life is best decided by God, trusting in Him to show us the way.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. – Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)
Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. – Deuteronomy 15:10 (KJV)
I’ve lived in my car for over four months and I am deciding that God has a plan for me, and I will search for it with all my might every day.
I know He would want me to be happy.
