    Why You Should Choose Classes Aligned With Your Purpose

    In college, you have a lot of freedom to pick the major and minor of the fields you want to study. You’re able to select the courses you prefer to take in most cases, although there are graduation requirements and some prerequisite classes. Overall, I believe that, depending on your purpose and calling, you should focus on choosing classes that will prepare you for what God has called you to do. If you want to be a nurse, then you would focus on health courses; if you want to be a worship leader or pastor, you can focus on theology classes. Make sure that you don’t sign up for something that isn’t aligned with your purpose, unless you want to just try something new or discover other career or mission fields.

    I challenge you to be wise with your time and to pick courses that will further you along in your academic journey toward your calling and mission. Many people waste so much time studying something that makes them miserable. We are not designed to live in misery, nor are we called to a life of complacency. The creator of the universe wants to use your interests, gifts and passions for His glory. We all have different gifts and unique callings, and we need to walk in them because God has given us those desires (Psalm 139).

    God didn’t give all of us the calling to be doctors or law makers. God made some of us intellectually brilliant or innovative. Some people are very smart in science or mathematics, while some are born to travel oversees as missionaries on foreign soil and some are born to financially support the missionaries as they are a light in their workplace. Never be ashamed of the calling, desires, interests or dreams that are in your heart. God placed specific passions in our hearts to bring justice and righteousness to the earth.

    Some people are called to end human trafficking, some to silence the persecutors of our faith in other countries and some to educate others. Some are called to preach and teach, and some are created to entertain or to inform us of other cultures and music. Some people are gifted with cooking, farming or baking. I don’t desire to be a doctor, but I desire to be a worship leader, a voice for the generation and a bearer of good news.

    What are you passionate about? What are you called to do to bring the Kingdom of heaven to earth?

     

    Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10)

    1. I’m passionate about being a doctor, I know without a shadow of a doubt that it’s what God wants me to do and that with his help I will get there. 🙂 I’m not the smartest kid by any means but I know that with hard work and God’s grace, that I will be able to do his will XD
