Finding My Own Way

I am almost 48 years old. Yikes! I thought I would have it all figured out by now, but alas, I do not. Instead, I am still searching for my path. I am good at finding a path, but is it truly the one I need to be on? That is the question. 

In 2011, I graduated from college right before I turned 40 with a degree in Christian Ministry. At the time, I was working for a church and had planned to work full-time in the church with my degree. But God…
Instead, I found myself taking a job in an elementary school working as a Parent Engagement Coordinator. I worked with low income families helping them to learn how to make learning fun for their kids. I encouraged them to volunteer. I gave my heart and my soul, because for 7 years, this was my ministry. Then I found myself burned out and not feeling as if I was doing a good job anymore. It broke my heart to admit that I needed a change. I felt like I had failed. But God…
So I am in the summer between ending a job that I put my whole heart into and a new position working predominantly with kids in the same school. I feel as if I am at a crossroads with my life. There are things I have always wanted to do, but have never felt the “release” to just jump in and do them. Life just keeps going, but I don’t feel like I am moving. 
For the next month or two, my goal is to reconnect with my God-fueled passion. I don’t know what that looks like, but I know He does. And that is all that matters.
Join me on my journey to find my path. You might find yours, too!
