I have found that once a person comes to the realization that they have become a child of God they will eventually come to ask the following question in one form or another: What am I to be doing? What is my calling? Am I good enough to be involved in God’s work? Did I miss “it”? One could take all of the questions and boil them down to the question of one’s destiny. Probably the saddest question is the one about missing one’s purpose in God because of their previous lifestyle. What a relief it is when we finally come to the realization that God is truly God. That all of our past has been either permitted or has been proactively preparing us, during our formative stages of life, into the person God would desire us to be for His glory. Those with a gory past may have difficulty in accepting that their goriness is to prepare them for God’s glory. The question of our past being in God’s hand is settled in Jeremiah 1:4-5:

The word of the LORD came to me:
I chose you before I formed you in the womb; 
I set you apart before you were born. 
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.

As for the question of why we are here, are we good enough, and what is our destiny we read the Apostle Paul’s answer in Ephesians 2:10:

For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.

We are here to do His work;
We are good enough because we are His creation;
We do not have to try to figure out to do since He has prepared it all before there was time.

Be encouraged for God has it all figured out for us and a place for each and every one of us if only we would accept (listen to) Him and do (obey) what He has uniquely designed for each of us with our uniquely designed assignments.
