In the past couple months I have been pondering, praying, and waiting, for my next step. I’ve been trying to figure out what my next step in life is. I don’t mean like a footstep I mean like a path, a direction. I really feel God is leading me in the youth ministry direction. I am already an assistant youth leader at my church and I feel thats the direction God is leading.
I just am starting to wonder if there is somewhere else God is leading me right now. Not out of youth ministry or out of my current position at my church but just further down that path. Maybe I should go to college for ministry or get ordained. If so where and how? Those are the kinda things I have been thinking about lately.
I feel like I know the direction God is leading me down the road but I don’t know when that will be. Next month? Next year? Or 5 years from now? That I don’t know. I do know it involves ministry. But what do I do until then? Since putting to rest some of those projects that really weren’t taking off and were stressing me out, I believe that has helped me focus on what is really important in my life. We are all called to some sort of ministry for His kingdom. Some its music, some its pastoring a church, some its missions, and some its youth. There are a lot more different ministries that can be used for God’s kingdom but I feel that youth ministry is where I am being called.
I have another blog called “More Than a Group” where I write to youth leaders and share ways and things about growing a youth group. Please go check that out (http://morethanagroup.wordpress.com).
