…what did you want to be when you grew up?

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Well, I wanted to be a doctor, then in my later years of high school I realized there just wasn’t the finances or way to with, per say. Then I thought, hey, I loved writing and got great grades in my College Prep, writing courses, and English so I wanted to be a famous journalist and writer.

However life has a way of changing a person’s course and I have yet to become that News Anchor/Journalist or famous writer. However years into the future, paying my way through some college while working, and experiencing “a lot of life”, I realize I am now actually doing what I wanted to do and be when I grew up. I am a doctor of sorts, I help heal the scratches and bruises of my children not just on their bodies, but in their hearts too. I get to work with and help people struggling, managing, or recovering from mental illness, grief, loss, and divorce. I get to tell others about the saving grace of Jesus Christ, Whom brings eternal life, heals hearts, minds, bodies and souls. I may not have written that famous best selling novel, yet, but I do write a regular blog, wrote a few short stories, and what is called “Ghost writing” and get decent reviews for it. Although I didn’t picture myself as a business consultant, it is a great and challenging career. So yes, thanks to God, I am, in a real way, what I wanted to be when I grew up. So when life feeds you lemons, it may turn out to be lemonade later, or when you think you have failed or made too many mistakes, or life events have taken you way off course, remember God is not done with you yet, and quite possibly what you were made to do and be, you are already doing, or yet to be done! ‪#‎Grateful‬ ‪#‎Blessed‬ ‪#‎ProudDad‬ Hebrews 12:1-3
