God, Life and Choice. what would you do if you are a believer? no career, big money, people will think am nuts

I have wanted to be a Family and Marriage therapist for the past 5 years. 6 months ago I accepted Christ and now I want to do all the things God want me to do also I’ve been praying to serve Him and please Him. Now the more i went to my psychology classes, i realized that there is no thought of God when people try to solve world's problems. Then that’s when God told me that I will not be able to help families and couples with psychology. So then I decided that once i finish school, i will go to a Christian grad school so I can learn to solve problems God's way. After that i just prayed that He will work it out for me and I stopped worrying about it. I found peace and started to speak God's word to my room mates and class mate. Now it is the end of the school semester and last night, God reminded me that even though what i am doing is nice, it is not what he wants me to do. I truly believe that he wants me to leave school after that i don't know. This is a hard choice cuz of my mom.

    I do not care if all the people calling nutz if I'm following what God's want me to do. This people did not know better. You know more than they know God. Ask God what His plan for your life and do not ask anyone but God. You said you found peace when you are sharing Jesus with your roommates, right? I thought you got it already! First, God wants you to tell everyone around you about Him. What He has done in your life. Testimony. You have to remember God's plan for your life is good and will not hurt you. Jeremiah 29:11. Proverbs 16:7 "When a man's way please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him." In other words, when we put God first in our life everything will follow in sequence. Hang tight there. God will not leave you nor forsake you. Just read your Bible at lease once a day/verse or more. Filled your thoughts with the Word of God. You need to grow in faith. Remember you're still a baby and you can not eat solid food yet. Do not harry to grow up and will not going to happend over night. Just keep reading your bible for now. If you did not understand something just keep on reading and pray to God that reveal to you the meaning of it.

    I pray to our God that He will hold you tight and will keep you under His wings till you grow in faith and ready to fly. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    May the blessing, love, joy, peace of our Lord Jesus Christ reign in your heart forever...

    I love your love for God's way. Reading your question, I have a feeling that you are looking for your soul's purpose. I believe that every soul is born with a specific mission in life. There is something that no other person can do the way your soul is equipped to do it. When you live your soul's purpose you consistently feel mighty close with God and be of real service to Him. Until you find and live that purpose, your life will feel unfulfilled. It is only through doing that job that you can find real fulfillment. However, the mission of your soul is only known to your "Individuality", which with most of us is still not awakened. We have two aspects of ourselves, "Personality" and "Individuality". Personality is what we desire others to see in us. Individuality is what we really are. However, great spiritual seekers like the legendery American psychic and mystic Edgar Cayce, Dr. Carl Jung, Ouspensky and Gurdjieff have shown particular ways and specific techniques through which you can discover your soul's purpose. Soul's purpose is not merely a profession. The profession is merely a vehicle for expressing that mission. Luckily for all of us another spiritual seeker, Mark Thurston has put the teachings of Edgar Cayce and other teachers mentioned above cohesively in a book. This book is called "Discovering Your Soul's Purpose" by Mark Thurston. By applying the methods shown in this book you can surely discover your soul's mission and live it. You can find this book in www.edgarcayce.org

    I hope you read this book and find a much better meaning of your existence

    As a marriage counselor, do you counsel your clients to let the man be a polygamist-like many of the OT founding fathers? How do you label all the murders of children and infants in the OT (world-wide flood, first born of Egypt, Elijah story, something about boiling babies in Leviticus, the children in Job, all the children who were killed in any battle in God's name, etc) as 'just'?

    I realize you obviously are having a mental breakdown of sorts. Keep on with Psychology classes. They're cheaper than a therapist.

    I think you should pray more and talk to your pastor. While I think psychology is a load of bologny, the degree may actually help you as a Christian counselor some day.

    If God is calling you somewhere else, then by all means go, but first seek confirmation that you are hearing Him, and not just getting restless with things as they are. Get someone, like a pastor, to pray for and with you and to counsel you. That is what ministers are there for.

    So what do you do in case you become maximum suitable in believing, yet have been given the deity incorrect? assume that as a exchange of God with a capital G, you die and the god waiting for you is Ba'al. basically as violent and jealous as Yaweh, yet he did not be waiting to mellow out over the years like the Christian god. certainly this comparable argument is roofed contained in the e book The God fantasy with the help of Richard Dawkins. it is not likely of challenge in any respect except you certainly have self assurance that a great clever being, or ANY being for that understand that is forgiving and loves you, might certainly be able to sending you to an eternity of insufferable torture, not to point for something as benign as not believing it it. Do you notice the failings in that logic? assume you had a teenage daughter and you found out that she kissed some boy which you think of is undesirable for her. once you found out might you beat her, tie her to a chair and set her on fire? Now, evaluate the certainty that a god sending somebody to hell for not believing in them is basically infinitely worse, yet for some reason human beings nonetheless have self assurance that this god loves them. If a human can try this kind of project to a distinctive guy or woman without being actually pushed insane with the help of guilt, we often call them a psychopath. isn't God meant to set an occasion? finally, no, it isn't the main suitable gamble all of us take up existence. there is plenty that this worldwide has to grant once you do not enable a faith stifle you. i'm not talking approximately drugs and crime, i'm talking with regard to the liberty of theory and the sciences you may hit upon and study approximately, and the recommendations that breath existence into human beings and make the finished worldwide plenty greater vivid and thrilling. Us Atheists nonetheless have an exceedingly clean and robust sense of proper and incorrect, it basically makes greater sense, does not restrict issues that don't harm all persons like pre-marital intercourse, and makes us often freer and greater chuffed human beings. you may attempt it.
