I wanted to be a musician because I dig the spotlight but I also honestly believe that I've been given a gift, and it was my obligation to share it. To make sure that I did so, He made it fun for me as well. Made perfect sense. But it didn't work out, so I went back to school to become a teacher.
Again, the idea was to share my gift, as He would want me to, or so I thought. I was a good teacher, my students learned a lot and had fun doing it, but as we all know, teachers don't make jack for money, and after six years, I got laid off anyway.
So now I'm a computer programmer and makes lots of money and help a big corporation make lots of money, going on 17 years. Instead of trying to guess at what I'm supposed to be doing, I've decided that whatever works out must be the way it's supposed to be. There are a number of quotes which are variations on "we cannot understand His plan for us" or "His mind is beyond us" or whatever, so okay, I'll go that route.
