I am not a doctor, none of the information on any of these pages pertaining to the Ketogenic Diet or Adrenal Fatigue should be considered medical advice and should not replace the care of your personal physician. I am simply eager to share the information I have learned while on my own journey to health. Before you embark on this journey, please consult with your physician.

One of the most common questions I’ve been asked over the years is “How do I find God’s will for my life”?

This question comes from a deep place inside all of us, a place that longs for meaning and purpose. A place that years to make a mark on this world. A place that cries out to belong to something bigger than us.

Finding God's will for your life isn't as complicated as we think it is. It is as simple as following one Bible verse.

As a teenager I battled with this question a lot.

Deep inside I always knew I would go into ministry, but I thought that I would go into music ministry.

From the age of 8 I had studied piano, I loved to sing, and my radio played KCMS 105 FM 24/7. I knew practically every 80’s contemporary Christian music song by heart.

I still do.

Over the years I have found God’s will for my life in many different areas

  • I worked in various daycares and preschools where I had the opportunity to touch the lives of precious children with God’s love
  • I led teen girls discipleship groups and home Bible studies where I got to lead young believers in becoming disciples of Jesus Christ
  • I led worship teams for many years
  • I counseled young women in my home

Now I find God’s will for my life is:

  • Leading an online women’s Bible study that spans Croatia, Bosnia, and Serbia
  • Mentoring women to disciple young women around them
  • Writing this blog
  • Discipling the school-aged children in our church
  • Raising two young boys with mild learning disabilities

How to Find God’s Will For Your Life

Finding God’s will for your life and fulfilling His purpose isn’t the puzzle we sometimes make it out to be.

And when we discover what God’s will for our life is, it doesn’t mean that this is the one and only purpose He has for us.

What you do for God today may look completely different tomorrow.

In each season of our life, God’s will for us may change. But don’t let this complicate even more the concept of finding God’s will for your life —

because Scripture makes it so very simple!!

We Charismatics (or sometimes Charismaniacs) can overly complicate a very simple matter!

Paul revealed for us they key to finding God’s will for our life:

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23

We get so hung up on whether or not we should be a missionary or have a career, whether or not this certain guy or girl is “the one”.

We need to remember this: Be faithful where are you are now and God will open doors that are in line with his will.

Do you want to be an evangelist? Evangelize now, where you are…and perhaps God will open the door for you to do that full time.

Do you want to be a missionary? Share the gospel now, where you are…and perhaps God will open the door for you to do that full time.

When we make delighting in God our one and only purpose in life, He will direct us where He wants us to go.

When we stop striving for answers to our future and start delighting in our Creator who holds all the answers, we will find that we naturally dwell in His will in every season of our life!

When we do these three things Paul has commanded us to do, we will naturally find God’s will for our life.

So, how do we find God’s will for our lives?

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23

1. Rejoice always. Joy is a choice, it isn’t a feeling and it isn’t circumstantial. It is the decision to do those things that produce joy in our lives.

2. Pray always.  What would happen if instead of stressing and worrying we prayed. What if when we felt hurt we chose to pray until we felt our burden lifted.

3. Be thankful always. We tend to compartmentalize our lives too much. Thanksgiving happens in November. On Facebook we daily list those things for which we’re thankful, but December – October we rant and complain. But Paul said that in everything we are to be thankful. In EVERYTHING. Even in the situation we have right now. Yep. Even now.

  1. Hey Rosalind, Happy Wednesday!

    It’s so good to be here partying with you and the R & R community! Thanks so much for hosting.

    Have a blessed weekend, my friend!

    Blessings,
    Tiffiney

  2. Hi Rosilind,
    Thanks, as always, for hosting! The party just keeps getting better and better! Looking forward to getting your health memos…great idea!
    Have a great week, friend ~ it was nice to see you over at Coffee & Conversation, too 😉

  3. I’m sorry to hear of your health problem, Rosilind, but you are so right about putting our focus on thanking and praising God. It truly is where I failed when I was much younger and believe that was part of the reason I developed Rheumatoid Arthritis in my early 30’s. I’m still trying to develop that habit, since it seems so much easier to focus on the negative. But I want to realize what an insult that is to our Lord. Thanks so much for challenging on this, my friend and as always thank you for the linkup!

  4. You’ve shared so wisely here, Rosilind. How do we know God’s will? By reading His Word! While I do believe He has a specific will for each of us, we ought not expect Him to reveal those things to us if we’re not fulfilling the parts we already know. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us at Grace & Truth! You’re always a blessing.

    1. “While I do believe He has a specific will for each of us, we ought not expect Him to reveal those things to us if we’re not fulfilling the parts we already know. ” – THIS!!! So well said.
