Ask a VOM Worker Story
Published on September 13th, 2011
VOM worker “Lena” shared the following advice for young people trying to plan their lives.
“You can’t plan what you’re going to do: A, B, C. You can’t dictate to God. Follow him, and he will provide. Shut doors can mean the timing is not right.
“Serve and love those around you. If you can’t love those who make fun of you, you won’t be able to love those who persecute you worse in the future. Serve the people the Lord puts in your life, and he’ll guide you where to go.”
To Discuss: Lena said, “Shut doors can mean the timing is not right.” What did she mean by that? Read Proverbs 3:5–7. Is Lena’s advice in agreement with these verses?
