  1. What an encourager you are! May we all echo your thoughts to those we encounter that we will be rising up to fill His purpose for us & bring Him glory! Blessings.

  2. What a great message and I think it needs to said over and over. Whatever you are called to do God is there. Thank you Stephanie.

  3. Stephanie – you have no idea how meaningful your essay is to me. I’m in the autumn of my life, still functioning with various ministries, one of which is writing weekly Devotions for our parish women’s guild. With that I still have not been able to see what my niche, role, call is. Reading your thoughts, I’m beginning to recognize that maybe, just maybe, I am responding to His call.
    Thank you for the hope! Blessings!

  4. This brought me to tears! I was in full time ministry with my husband nearly 30 years, was his sole caretaker through four years of a rare dementia and Parkinson’s Disease, and widowed just over a year ago. Those four years of caregiving, I sought what God wanted for me “after” those two terminal illnesses. All He kept saying to me is that I would be a modern-day Anna the Prophetess. And he planted me in a local assembly where I can very much do that. Family doesn’t understand my passion, in fact my only sibling has cut me off, considered me as dead. THIS BLOG IS SO VERY ENCOURAGING TO ME. I wish it didn’t take nearly 64 years to figure this out! Thank you for writing this.

    • Cynthia,

      You have been through a lot in your years. God wants to use those experiences to help others. Guide them through the very trials you went through & help them know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Both parents had dementia/psych issues. Dad was hospitalized twice geropsych). Now God has placed me in an ICU Step down clerical position at large local hospital. I use my experiences to help the RNs, CNAs, patients & their families. I understand what the family is going through & what the patient needs-loving care. You are using those gifts/talents God has gifted you with. Keep up the great work!

      Blessings 🙂

  5. So spot on for my ears today …..Thankyou it can be so tempting to allow this conversation to prevent me moving forward into that calling God has place in my heart ❤️
    So encouraging

  6. This is so true and so timely. For years I thought something was wrong with me because I didn’t “fit in”(whatever that means) But now I embrace me as God designed me. So happy to hear of others going thru the same thing. Thank you for your beautiful thoughts and encouragement. I always wonder if I’m fulfilling my calling. But in the meantime I’ll keep doing what I’m doing. Blessings to you.

  7. Thank you for this today. I have received a job offer for being a preschool teacher (my passion) and I am making a job change that was much needed. Thank you for helping to confirm I am doing His will. I knew it was right because the Holy Spirit was putting “change” on my heart with my old job so I knew it was time to move on. Thank you God!

  8. I had a weird idea, again of course, last night. I texted it to a Christian friend and called her this morning with other things to talk about as well.
    It just might get started at our
    church! The idea was to restart or start a prayer group.
    Lots of ideas of what to pray about,too.

  9. Stephanie,

    God has wired each of us differently. I sure don’t fit into any mold. Mostly introverted with a quirky personality. Love helping people any way I can. God’s plans for us are far better than we could imagine. Didn’t realize that care giving for my aging parents w/dementia & psych issues would lead to an ICU step down clerical position. We get all kinds of patients in my units. My passion is towards the elderly. Enjoy being able to assist RNs, CNAs, families & patients any way possible. Some might call me weird that I gravitate towards older people all the time. I enjoy being around them & hearing their stories.

    Thanks Stephanie for telling us we aren’t weird, but wired differently. Uniquely made in the image of Almighty God & gifted with various talents.

    Blessings 🙂

  10. I didn’t get to read this when it came out on the 7th and was just able to get to it. It was just what I needed today. I just read another one that talked about age and feeling to old to do what God called us to and then this one which are the very things I have been wrestling with these past couple of weeks, well honestly longer than that. God is definitely talking to me.
