Day 22: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
I've thought and thought about this. Even a year ago, I could have sat at this computer and typed out exactly where I saw my life headed, but now I've had to take a step back to reevaluate everything.
Now, I do have passions and ideas. I definitely want to work in missions and world relief projects. I have a huge heart for orphans and an increasing desire for adoption. But I also have questions that I'm waiting to be answered.
Also, a year ago I would have described without hesitation my desire for a godly husband, but now that my future is being laid out before me, I've become uncertain if that can happen. How many men are actually interested in moving to a third world country or international adoption (or both)? I don't know if my future holds marriage, but I do know that I'm loved unceasingly by the Creator of the world. I'm in love, and whether or not He places another love in my life, I am satisfied where I am.
I don't know what my future holds.
Will I go or will I stay? I'm not sure yet. I'll most likely end up doing both at different points in my life.
In five to fifteen years, I may be serving orphans through a humanitarian organization located in the United States. I may be living in another country. I may be in heaven. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
