The filling station

Whenever God presents me with a new opportunity, particularly a job, I always ask the same three questions:

  1. How long will I be here?
  2. Who will benefit from me being here?
  3. Why am I here?

Of course, He never answers #1 (at least not immediately), but He never fails to provide me with answer #3. Every job I’ve had, was a filling station. All the knowledge and skills I acquired were used to get me to my next location, until I reached my final destination. While there have been times I wanted to keep driving and not stop when God told me to, I got off on my intended exit, because it is imperative for me to get what I need for where I’m going. It won’t always make sense, but do know that where you are is only preparing (and propelling) you to where you will end up next. God makes no mistake in the path He chooses for your journey. You might not like it, but you’re going to love where it takes you. No matter how frustrating things get, stay the course. You’re (already) headed in the right direction.
