I used to think God's will was mostly a vocation or had to do with making a big decision. However, this past weekend I realized that God's will is much more than that.
I was privileged to be able to read the Bible to my grandpa who is battling cancer. As I was driving to his house, I heard on the radio 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. I decided that verse would be the one that I would share with my grandpa later that day. As I read it to him, we discussed what each verse was saying....and then it hit me....God's will is not about being something or going somewhere all the time..it also is about what 1 Thessalonians says: Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. What a new challenge and mindset for me!
