God has a purpose for your life. You may not know it yet, but that purpose is waiting for you to find it. Everyone has the potential to be what God had called upon them. Taking that purpose could seem like a risk at the time, but in the end, it will be a choice you will always remember. It will be a choice for the better.
God has different ways of guiding us to be the best we can be. Here is a story I found from Adventures in Odyssey’s book- (The title of the book has link on it. Click on the title below and you will be guided to a site where you can purchase it).
“John Wilson was performing a routine science experiment at school when a giant explosion occurred. A distracted lab assistant had made a labeling mistake, and instead of heating a flask of water, John fired up a container with a volatile chemical. John woke up in the hospital blinded for life.
“That was tragic, but what what would have been even more tragic is if John had allowed himself to become bitter and hard-hearted. But instead, he grew more compassionate toward others inflicted with that disability. He heard about an area in Africa where a large section of the population was blind due to a disease passed through an insect bite. John worked with a team develop a medicine to keep people from getting the disease. The medicine proved effective, and today generations of children can thank John Wilson for their ability to see.
“But God doesn’t always use tragedies in that way. Sometimes a good experience sparks in us a new desire or a tug at our hearts. It might be the inspiration of a teacher, service project, a magazine article, or a visit to another country.”

Even though it may seem as if we cannot pull away from our struggles or the fact that we haven’t figured out our purpose, God has a plan. He has a plan for everyone and it will work out, if we listen to him and follow the path he has made just for us.
