When someone asks you "What is your ambitions in life?" what do you say? I often reply with something like "To glorify God", and leave it at that, but I often wonder if I am actually hiding away from answering the real question by shoving the "textbook answer" in the questioner's face.
Because, it often nags me. What is my ambition in life, apart from glorifying God? I am young and the world is an oyster in front of me, isn't it? Or is it like what a Psychology student once told me. "Your options in life are limited to around 3 professions by the time you turn three." Maybe that's exaggerating, maybe I heard wrong, but it does feel true in the sense that I wouldn't make my life's ambition to save nature, since I haven't really been brought up with it.
The problem is, I have so many things I like doing. Reading, writing, blogging, playing in my band, economics, designing, teaching, leading, travelling, learning. But out of these which are high enough on the list to be my ambitions?
In my head I imagine God showing me different doors, each with different, but appealing smells coming out of them. He stands behind me and is waiting for me to choose. It is so hard! Although I don't have to choose my ambition yet, the time I need to make a decision seems to be encroaching at me very, very fast.
The thing is, as I was writing about this, I now understand whichever path I take, God will use it for his glory. He will be supporting me. He will be comforting me. He will bring great things out of me.
It feels good to write and get my thoughts set out in words, thank you to all who read and support me, I hope you have had a great Easter break and that you will remember that whichever path you choose, God will use it for his glory.
