As long as I am in the will that God has for me and my life, I have Joy. How awful would it be to work so tirelessly to be in a position, only to get there, and be unhappy. Unhappy because that was not your calling. Nor your destiny. I try to always allow my Faith to lead me. Not my own selfish desires or even the desires of others. My favorite work is living in my Purpose. I hope all others live to do the same.
