Look to the Lord instead. Draw close to God and do what He asks you to do, and you will see God's purpose for you become manifest in your life.
More than at any other time in history, believing women are being given an open door to become all they were created to be. They are moving out in different areas of expertise and ministry and making an important difference in the lives of those whom God puts in their realm of influence.
God is looking for women who will be committed to living His way and stepping into the purposes He has for their lives. He wants women who are willing to sacrifice themselves for His kingdom. Women who say, "Not my will, but Yours be done, Lord." He wants praying women who are led by the Spirit, who will do what it takes to be equipped and ready when He opens the doors of opportunity for them.
You are one of those women. In order to move into the purpose and future God has for you, talk to Him about it every day. Say, "Lord, show me clearly what the gifts and talents are that You have placed in me. Help me to grow in them and enable me to use them according to Your will and for Your glory. Lead me in the way I should go as I move into the future You have for me." When you do, God will "grant you according to your heart's desire, and fulfill all your purpose" (Ps. 20:4, NKJV).
