When we first decide to follow Jesus, we realize that our God is trustworthy. This passionate desire to follow his will can dim when we are trying to follow God’s will for our life, but are confused about what His will actually is. We hear the voices of our friends, our family, our culture, and wonder, “I am doing the right thing?” This article can give insight into various paths available to us and assures us that the unconventional and lesser known places may be exactly where God wants us.

John 15:5 says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
As always, Jesus tells it like it is, and the news can seem a bit disheartening. Apart from Jesus we can do nothing. He doesn’t say we will accomplish a little bit, or that we’ll do fairly well. We can do nothing apart from him. Nothing of value. Not a thing that has eternal implications.
