In Highschool God brought me to Karate to give me a place to channel some energy and learn some basic philosophies of life. But then God needed me to focus on college so I gave up my karate. Then after college God brought Karate back to me so that I could cope with my horrible job. Then God called me to seminary which meant giving up karate. Now, is God bringing me back to the dojo? It has been years. Can I even go back? Is God allowing me to have this back? Could this really be something God is bringing me back to?
My dream was to one day have a black belt, could that start now? Again?
Sometimes God gives us gifts and things to enjoy to make life more enjoyable at certain times in our lives. And sometimes those seasons of our life end and we move on. We grieve the loss but we must move on to where God has called us too.
Has God ever done that to you? Given you something wonderful and then called you to something else more wonderful but it meant you had to give up your first gift. Leave a comment and tell me about it.
