Angela Taylor I'm looking for my next project...Look out, World!
Is it God’s will, our our (my) perception of what God has in store for us. It was less than a year ago that I was all gung-ho and driven on the law school track. Now, I’m perfectly happy (and busy) as a paralegal again. Last year, when I couldn’t find a job, I just KNEW it was because God had it in the plans for me to become an attorney. Now, I feel as if I’m right where I’m supposed to be. I’m blessed, fulfilled, challenged, and I enjoy what I do. Further, I’m no longer interested in killing myself for at least another four years, and THEN beginning a career. So, which is it??? Was I wrong then, or am I wrong now??? At what point are we absolutely sure? Perhaps it was a test of the measure of my faith??? I’m not sure that anyone can ever TRULY know WHAT God’s will is, but I like the idea of being perfectly willing to walk through any doors that He may open for me, and to acknowledge that when a door closes, that’s that. I’m partially torn, however, between the idea that I’m being lazy in “settling” for my career over school right now, but I’m simply not interested in being “entry level” in another 5 years or so. I’m in a good place right now, a place with room to grow, and I like it.
