We knew we wanted to serve within the church in some capacity but exactly what was a mystery to both of us. Then low and behold, one Sunday our Pastor announced an upcoming class called GPS Life Journey that was designed to help people find God’s plan for the next stages of their lives. We signed up online while we were still in the parking lot of the church that day!
While I was definitely excited to start the GPS Life Journey course, I was a little wary of how effective the course would turn out. As a professional, I took personality tests and they were accurate but that was all, nothing about what to do with said personality! I have also taken a few spiritual gift assessment tests and I had the same questions as I did with the personality test. “What do I do know? How is this applicable to my life?” As it turns out, this time would definitely be the exception to the rule.
It was a seven-week course that started with learning my personal profile, that included seven assessments, and how to hear from God, which then culminated in the development of a personal mission statement with a vision and strategy for making the plan happen. What a gift from the church, from author and facilitator Nolen Rollins and most of all from God.
Author Nolen has done what no other program has done before him and that is how to determine what God’s Plan for Significance is for your Life Journey!
So, what is the next phase of my life’s journey?
My mission is to guide people in discovering God’s plan for their lives through the GPS Life Journey process and to organize a free standing health clinic for the working uninsured of Loudon County, Tennessee. You see, God sometimes has a different plan that you might have thought. He decided to use my education and nursing skills to fulfill His plan for me. I am thrilled to follow His plan.
When the Free Health Clinic is completed, I know exactly how to find God’s next plan for me!
Oh, and I won’t be telling God what I think that is; I will listen to what He tells me?
